Black Friday doesn’t officially start until next week, but Monica Vinader decided to start early to give shoppers more time to browse. That’s right, the sale for the jewelry brand started on Thursday (November 18).
Until November 30, you can get 25% off everything. And that discount can go up to 30% once your cart totals £150 or more. Additionally, MV offers daily flash deals with select pieces up to 50% off.
Naturally, we’ve already scoured the offerings and spotted something very exciting – Kate Middleton’s super-affordable earrings.
The Duchess of Cambridge’s Siren earrings are normally £125, but for the week of Black Friday they’re reduced to £93.75. Not bad for royalty-approved jewelry.

Crafted from vermeil metal and centered in faceted green onyx, these simple earrings are super versatile (as Kate duly demonstrates).
We know what you’re thinking, how can you claim they’re his favorite? Well, it’s more than a hunch: The Duchess of Cambridge has been spotted wearing them several times over the past few years.
But if you don’t believe us, take a look at all the photographic evidence.
Kate was first spotted in Monica Vinader’s Siren design in 2016, during her royal tour of Canada. On day four, while visiting Kelowna, Kate accessorized her Dolce & Gabbana tea dress with the green earrings.
Later in the day, arriving at Whitehorse International Airport with William, she had matched her jewelry to another green garment: a woolen coat from the British brand Hobbs.
Every year, the Duchess of Cambridge sports a new green look for St. Patrick’s Day. And, naturally, her Monica Vinader earrings complete the outfits perfectly. At the 2017 celebrations in Ireland, Kate wore a bespoke Catherine Walker coat, cut in a fit-and-flare shape in green wool and finished with a black velvet collar.
Later that day, Prince William and Kate flew to Paris to meet then French President Francois Hollande at the Elysee Palace in Paris. Kate wore the same coat and earrings, but took off her Pillbox hat and let her hair down (we don’t miss a thing).
A few months later, Kate wore her favorite earrings to the Chelsea Flower Show with a green floral print dress.
Spotted again in August 2017 wearing Monica Vinader’s Siren earrings, Kate visited Princess Diana’s garden at Kensington Palace with Prince Harry. The green hue of onyx complemented the abstract print of her pussy-bow Prada dress.
Two months later, the Duchess wore her earrings more casually – with a simple gray sweatshirt and jeans to visit Sayers Croft Forest School and Wildlife Garden in London.
Most recently, Kate wore her Monica Vinader earrings to the Chelsea Flower Show (2019) with a Broderie Anglaise blouse, Massimo Dutti trousers and Superga sneakers.
While we have you, let us shed some light on the Black Friday sales…
What is Black Friday?
Black Friday has now overtaken Boxing Day as the biggest retail event of the year. Originating in the United States, the day of sales crossed the pond in 2010 and now most big box stores, as well as several luxury brands, are a big part of it. With stores offering discounts of up to 30% on new season items, Black Friday is the best time to shop as the price tags really are the cheapest. A few weeks from Christmas, it is also the ideal place to go shopping before the end of the year celebrations.
When is Black Friday?
Black Friday always falls on the fourth weekend of November, which this year is the 26th.
