Royal Wedding Jewelry: A Delicate Display of Diamonds

April 29, 2011

Kate Middleton's wedding jewelry was the epitome of understated elegance. From her teardrop earrings to her tasteful tiara - we've got all the royal diamond details!

Kate Middleton's highly anticipated walk down the aisle was - by all accounts - a royal hit. Now known as Her Royal Highness, Princess William of Wales, Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton wore an ivory and white lace gown designed by Sarah Burton, creative director of British-based design house Alexander McQueen.

The long-sleeved lace gown with a two-meter train was paired with a 1936 Cartier diamond tiara on loan to the bride by Queen Elizabeth II, along with a pair of stunning diamond teardrop earrings.

The earrings were the bride's 'something new'. A gift from her parents, the diamond dazzlers featured stylized oak leaves with a pear-shaped diamond set drop and a pave set diamond acorn suspended in the centre. The design was created by Robinson Pelham and took inspiration from the Middleton family's new family crest.

Other jewelry taking center-stage included Her Royal Highness's famed sapphire and diamond engagement ring. The 'something blue' ring features a gorgeous center-stone sapphire surrounded by 14 small diamonds set in 18K gold. The ring is no stranger to royal weddings; it was worn by the then Lady Diana Spencer when she wed Prince Charles in 1981.

Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II surprised no one sporting an elegant pearl ensemble featuring pearl earrings and a pearl necklace. Other jewelry included an heirloom piece, a True Lovers Knot diamond brooch given to her by Queen Mary, which was affixed to her double crepe wool tailored primrose coat by Angela Kelly.
