Pippa Middleton Flaunts Gorgeous Engagement Ring!

Congrats are in order! Duchess Kate’s younger sister, Pippa Middleton, is now engaged to financier James Matthews, and is planning a wedding for next year. Her ring is a gorgeous vintage/art deco design, which features a stunning Asscher-cut diamond. While the ring’s designer and details haven’t been released yet, jewelry experts have estimated that the center stone totals 3 ct, and the surrounding stones add an additional estimated 1.5 ct to the ring. We are 100% gawking over her new bling (who wouldn’t be?)!

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (our ultimate style icon!), are currently on their India tour, and Kate has been rocking some pretty great outfits and accessories, although she always does, doesn’t she? She paired a crop top (yes, crop top!) and skirt with chandelier earrings for a garden party, a gorgeous blue floor length gown with blue drop earrings for a charity gala, and a patterned red dress with asymmetrical earrings at the Taj Hotel.

The entire family looked adorable as usual, but what we really loved was Kate’s summery green silk dress (found on the British fashion website Suzannah), which she paired with a pair of simple yet classy pearl drop earrings.

Kate Middleton, Prince William, and Baby George are officially on tour in New Zealand, and the Duchess of Cambridge looked amazing as usual, just stepping off the plane in a double-breasted red military-style coat by Catherine Walker. We don’t know about you, but post-flight we’re lucky to look even remotely stylish in our yoga pants, hoodie, and sneaks.

We all know that Kate had her choice of any of the Queen’s jewels for the tour (lucky!), but in true Kate-style, she showed some local love to New Zealand jewelers Tory & Ko. The brand’s designers sent four of Kate’s favorite pieces, in hopes that she’ll wear them in New Zealand during her tour.

Kate’s selection included a pair of blue topaz bow earrings, a cultured pearl and diamond necklace with matching earrings from the bespoke collection, and a pair of citrine bow earrings from the Pretty Collection.

Royal Wedding Jewelry: Catherine Wears Cartier & Robinson Pelham

The royal wedding jewelry shining from Kate Middleton (now Her Royal Highness Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge) was an understated display of elegance, grace and delicate diamonds.

The Tiara:

The subject of MUCH speculation, Kate ‘borrowed’ the Halo Tiara from The Queen’s coffers, which was made by Cartier in 1936. The Queen’s father, then the Duke of York, bought the bauble for the Queen Mother, then the Duchess of York (still with me?), who then gave it to her daughter – then Princess Elizabeth – on her 18th birthday.

Set in platinum, the priceless jewel is made from old and baguette-cut diamonds, with the upper part forming a range of lotus flowers and the lower ‘zig-zag’ part forming a removable piece that can be used as a bandeau.

No word yet on whether or not Catherine gets to keep it for her own collection – or if it’s just a loaner. Stay tuned!

The Earrings:

Kate’s understated earrings by Robinson Pelham were a gift from her parents – and were specifically designed to match her tiara. Nice touch.

According to Today Show blogger, The Windsor Knot, the earrings are diamond-set stylised oak leaves with a pear-shaped diamond drop and a pavé-set diamond acorn suspended in the centre.

Inspiration for the design comes from the Middleton family’s new coat of arms, which includes acorns and oak leaves. Cool.


The Ring:

Kate’s wedding band, which ALMOST didn’t make it on her ring finger (nice work, Wills) is a rare band of Welsh gold by Wartski, who also crafted the Welsh gold wedding bands for Prince Charles and Camilla.

Prince William famously declined to wear a ring because he ‘doesn’t have a taste for jewelry’. It’s a happy day. I’ll leave this as a rare “No comment”.

Overall, we witnessed a delicate diamond display that’s in keeping with Kate’s understated jewelry style. We’ll see how long that lasts now that she has access to The Queen’s stash!
