Kate Middleton has £3k gold jewel from Camilla with hidden detail: ‘Classic and timeless’


KATE MIDDLETON has worn impressive pieces of jewellery including tiaras, necklaces and rings. Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, a jewellery expert commented on one special piece she may have received 10 years ago.

Kate and Prince William tied the knot at Westminster Abbey on April 29, 2011.

On her wedding day, the Duchess of Cambridge stunned in a custom-made Alexander McQueen wedding dress.

She complemented the look with the Cartier Halo tiara which was borrowed from the Queen in line with royal wedding traditions.

Kate also wore a pair of Robinson Pelham drop diamond earrings which were a wedding gift from her parents.

Since the big day, the mother-of-three has continued to impress royal fans with her iconic jewellery collection.

This includes a bracelet which she reportedly received from Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, on her wedding day.

It was first spotted on Kate a couple of months after the wedding, Nick Withington, Managing Director of jeweller William May, explained.

He said: “Camilla is thought to have presented the bracelet to Kate as a wedding gift.

“She was first pictured wearing the bracelet in June 2011, two months after her wedding to Prince William.”

At first glance, the timeless bracelet consists of a gold chain with a circular charm hanging from it.

However, on closer inspection it becomes clear the jewel is from Camilla.

The Duchess of Cornwall appeared to have personalised the chain for her daughter-in-law.

The gold chain is engraved with two ‘C’s which appear to relate their names.

Nick continued: “The bracelet is a classic chunky curved link with an engraved disc charm.

“Double sided, the disc is engraved with a ‘C’ for Catherine and a coronet and the reverse side a ‘C’ for Camilla and a crown.”

The bracelet is sure to hold a lot of sentimental value to Kate and it is unlikely it would ever be for sale.

If it was to go on the market, however, the expert suggested it could fetch an impressive sum of money.

Nick explained the bracelet could be worth as much as £3,000.

“[It is] a timeless classic that is on-trend for today,” he concluded.

“It’s approximate current valuation is £2,995.”
