DALLAS, Apr 29, 2011 / — In 1981, Diana sparkled in a diamond encrusted tiara and pear shaped diamond earrings. Today, Kate chose a modern yet timeless look with elegant and understated platinum jewelry.
Says Michael O’Connor, Jewelry Expert about Kate’s choice of jewelry:
“The unique blend of modern, vintage and heirloom pieces of platinum jewelry from both her family and from William’s family chosen by Kate illustrate the couple’s desire to marry today’s elements with the durability and traditions of yesterday.
The choice of the platinum and diamond Halo tiara by Cartier, originally designed for the Queen Mother, combined with the platinum and diamond pear shaped drop earrings (a present from Kate’s parents), and the iconic sapphire and diamond engagement ring, once owned by Princess Diana, illustrate the bond of family and the lifetime legacy that quality platinum jewelry provides.
Kate’s jewelry style truly exemplifies that of a modern yet sophisticated royal bride.”
