Besides the cake, the pageantry and the fact you're invited to celebrate the lifelong love between a couple, the next best thing about any wedding is the bling! When you're about to become Duchess of Cambridge and Queen-in-waiting, you know your jewelry has to be impressive. Kate definitely didn't disappoint in that, or any regard.
Her "something borrowed" was the Queen Of England's Cartier "halo" tiara. Set in platinum, the headpiece is made from baguette-cut diamonds, with the upper part of the tiara forming a range of lotus flowers. The lower "zig-zag" part forms a removable piece that can be used as a bandeau.
The earrings she wore which were a gift from her parents, and were designed by Robinson Pelham to match her tiara. According to Today Show blogger, The Windsor Knot, the earrings are diamond-set stylized oak leaves with a pear-shaped diamond drop and a pavé-set diamond acorn suspended in the center.
The final touch to all this elegant, yet classic, jewelry is of course THE WEDDING BAND! Kate's wedding band is made of Welsh gold and was created by Wartski from a piece of gold that was given to Prince William by Queen Elizabeth shortly after his engagement, according to a palace spokesperson in People magazine.
We don't have an up-close picture of the wedding band yet. However, you can be sure we will be on the look out for this divine band. Oh, we almost forgot...congratulations to the happy couple. We here at Red Carpet Jeweler Blog wish you a life of happiness!
