Prince William gifted Kate Middleton a statement necklace for her 30th birthday

As Prince William and Kate Middleton commemorate their wedding anniversary today, it’s a perfect moment to reflect on some of the exquisite jewellery that he’s bestowed upon her over the years.

From a Ballon Bleu de Cartier watch marking their third anniversary to a pair of breath-taking green amethyst, tourmaline, and diamond earrings presented upon the birth of Princess Charlotte, it’s evident that the Prince has an impeccable taste in jewellery.

Back in 2012, Kate made a nod to the upcoming Olympic games with some stunning hoops of her own. Designed by Cartier, the necklace and matching earrings are thought to have been a gift for her 30th birthday from Prince William.

Leading diamond experts at UK retailer Steven Stone have taken a close look at the pieces, revealing everything there is to know – including their eye-watering price tag…

“To honour the spirit of the 2012 Olympic Games, Kate Middleton graced the occasion with her own dazzling tribute – adorning herself with an exquisite necklace and matching pair of earrings reminiscent of the iconic Olympic rings.

Kate’s necklace made its debut during an Olympic-themed exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, an event close to Kate’s heart as a patron. Crafted from 18-carat gold, it features a dazzling array of pavé diamonds, complimented by three intertwined circles of pink, yellow, and white gold.

When she stepped into the Olympic Stadium for the grand opening ceremony, Kate was wearing the diamond-studded earrings. Crafted to mirror the illustrious Olympic rings, they completed her ensemble with elegance and grace.

Though designed by Cartier, the French jewellery house debunked rumours that they’d loaned the set to Kate. Instead, they’re thought to have been a gift from Prince William to mark a significant milestone – Kate’s 30th birthday.

With an estimated combined value of £121,000, these timeless pieces serve as both a testament to royal elegance and a celebration of sporting excellence.”
