On a recent royal outing, the Duchess of Cambridge re-wore an elegant piece of jewelry which, while simple in design, has special meaning. Indeed, Kate Middleton’s gold necklace features the initials of her children, allowing the mother of three to keep Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis close to her heart wherever she goes.
On Wednesday, as INSIDER reported, Middleton was spotted wearing a gold and diamond midnight moon necklace by British jeweler Daniella Draper which currently sells for Â£ 1,020, or around $ 1,337, as he visited a baby bank known as Baby Basics in Sheffield. According to the designer’s website, the necklace features a 9k gold chain and moon charm, which represents “the rhythm of time as it embodies the cycle” and is believed to symbolize “immortality, eternity and enlightenment. “. A diamond is set in the moon charm, which can be engraved with up to seven hand-stamped letters.
According to Daily mail, Middleton’s necklace has been engraved with the letters G, L, C for Prince George, Prince Louis and Princess Charlotte. Middleton paired her necklace on Wednesday with a “flippy wiggle” white silk-crepe Suzannah dress and a floral-patterned fabric face mask.
But this is not the first time that Middleton has worn this specific piece of jewelry. According to Harper’s Bazaar, the Duchess was first seen wearing the necklace in January when she visited the Ely and Caerau Integrated Children’s Center in Cardiff. On this occasion, she teamed the necklace with an elegant black turtleneck, a leopard print skirt and a long camel coat.
Of course, Middleton isn’t the only royal to display a penchant for personalized jewelry. The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, has also been seen wearing personalized necklaces with heartfelt reminders on more than one occasion. In July 2019, for example, Today reported that Markle cheered on her friend Serena Williams at Wimbledon while wearing a simple gold chain necklace with the letter A on it, likely a reference to baby Archie, Markle’s son with Prince Harry.
The Duchess of Cambridge was in attendance at Sheffield Baby Bank on Wednesday to help unwrap donations from retailers as part of her initiative to get 19 top brands to donate tens of thousands of diapers, clothing and bedding for UK families in need, such as Hello! Magazine reported. And while she worked to help other children in need, Middleton kept her three children at heart with her engraved gold necklace.
