To complement her Sarah Burton wedding dress, Kate Middleton wore a Cartier ‘halo’ tiara lent to her by the Queen and diamond earrings by Robinson Pelham.
The tiara was made in 1936 and presented to Princess Elizabeth (now The Queen) by her mother on the occasion of her 18th birthday.
The pear-shaped diamond earrings were a present to Kate from her parents on her wedding day.
They have a pavé set diamond acorn suspended in the centre and the inspiration for the design comes from the Middleton family’s new coat of arms, which includes acorns and oak leaves.
“The unique blend of modern, vintage and heirloom pieces of platinum jewelry from both her family and from William’s family chosen by Kate illustrate the couple’s desire to marry today’s elements with the durability and traditions of yesterday,” jewelry expert Michael O’Connor tell us. “Kate’s jewelry style truly exemplifies that of a modern yet sophisticated royal bride.”
