Kate Middleton Wedding Jewelry: The Trouble With Tiaras

Kate Middleton’s wedding jewelry has been the subject of MUCH speculation in bauble land, especially since she’s apparently the only one who will be wearing a wedding band now that Prince Wills opted out of the sacred ritual.

So. Most royal watchers are fixating on the tiara – a favorite past time with this crowd. But does Kate have to wear one? In a word: YES!

Lady Diana chose to wear her own family heirloom when she married Prince Charles – the Diamond Spencer tiara. But since Kate is, how shall I say this delicately – a lowly commoner – it’s likely her family doesn’t have a stash of tiaras at the ready.

The Queen could, of course, choose to lend or (gasp!) give Kate a tiara from her vast collection – which would be seen as a sign of confidence in the bride. (Click here to learn more about the Queen’s tiara collection – and which one is the current Kate frontrunner).

I love the idea of a NEW tiara making it’s debut (along with an Alexander McQueen wedding gown, fingers crossed!) and InStyle’s wily editors apparently agree since they recently asked some of the jewelry world’s top designers to sketch out their vision for a Kate Middleton wedding tiara in an awesome pictorial. 

I love this one by Chopard (of course).

And that wacky Alexis Bitter’s interpretation is just crazy enough to drive the Queen to an early grave.

So what will mack out the mellon of this most famous bride? We’ll just have to ride the neverending Royal Wedding pre-party wave – and keep the guessing games going until the big day on the 29th.

In the meantime, JewelClub is getting in the spirit with the launch of their Royal Sample Sale today – with lots of great Kate-inspired sapphire sample sale steals, royal watchers!

And YES the  Royal Wedding Live Tweet party is ON! We’re using #royaljewelry for anyone who wants to join the fun. And YES – I will be getting up at 4AM to see it live. And YES – I think I may have a jewelry addiction problem.

    Love your typo correction in your comments, Janice. A woman after my own heart. And YES – there are worse addictions to have, right? Hope to hear from you during the LIVE Tweet on the 29th!

    I’m also intrigued about Kate Middleton’s wedding tiara. People are so excited to see her wedding with Prince William. It’s quite expected that this wedding is going to be as grand as can be. We just have to wait until the big day comes. It’s really hard to predict what’s going to happen.
