Kate Middleton’s Diamond Wedding Style
The royal style icon’s elegant bridal accessories.
Kate Middleton’s 18-carat oval sapphire and diamond engagement ring is breathtaking, to say the least. With so much attention put on the late Princess Diana’s ring from 1981, what modern jewelry could hold up to a ring of such timeless beauty?
Since her engagement, the 29-year-old has become somewhat of a fashion icon and all eyes have been on her while the world waits for the big day. Who will make her dress? Will it be traditional and conservative? Modern and avant-garde? Will she wear a tiara?
I have been in the luxury jewelry business for over 25 years and I consider it part of my job to ‘read’ the bride-to-be, get a sense of her style and help match pieces to a personality. Kate has always looked classy and put together in the public eye. She leans towards the conservative naturally, although still shows a unique fashion sense with her accent pieces like hats or earrings.
I’ve rarely seen her without an interesting earring – she’s sported everything from simple diamond studs to gold hoops with pear shaped drops, but as this is her wedding day, I would suggest she go classically regal in what she chooses, staying away from anything too trendy like large cocktail rings or over the top earrings. With that said, here are my top picks for Kate Middleton for her wedding day.
Kate seems to be a fan of gloves and this white leather pair by Fratelli Orsini ($237, leatherglovesonline.com)would look stunning on her for the bid day.
This necklace would be perfect for someone of Kate’s age and elegance. The floral pattern is youthful yet sophisticated. It holds 30 carats of diamonds. (price upon request, martinkatz.com)
