Designer Jewellery at the Royal WeddingPublished: May 2nd, 2011
The jewellery designer who created Kate Middleton’s earrings is Zoe Benyon, a co-founder of the jewellery firm Robinson Pelham. It is believed that Kate’s earrings have cost 15,000 pounds but a spokesman of the jewellery firm said they never disclosed prices their clients paid.
The diamond-set stylized oak leaves with a pear-shaped diamond set drop and a pave-set diamond accord in the centre were inspired by the new coat of arms of the family. Zoe Benyon also created the floral look diamond earrings Kate’s sister wore, Carole’s pendant and earrings and the gold pins that could be seen on the suits of the bride’s father and brother.
Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton with a ring that was one of the world’s most famous pieces of jewellery, a sapphire and diamond ring set in 18 karat gold, a ring that was not a stranger for royal weddings. It had been worn by Lady Diana Spencer when she married Prince Charles in 1981.
