Pretty in Kate’s Pendent (and a bonus sparkler!)

July 13, 2011

It’s not very difficult to spot our favorite Duchess’s favorite things (and they usually become our favorites, too). She debuted this beauty at the Order of the Garter Ceremony, and was seen wearing it on several occasions during the Tour de Canada y LA. Update: One of our fabulous readers has corrected us (which will probably happen a few more times as we get the hang of this!) that Kate’s been wearing this pendent as far back as 2005, debuting it at a wedding. Thanks, Anna!

Perhaps it was a wedding gift, or perhaps it was custom made for her by Royal Appointment of Her Majesty the Queen (I have no idea, I just enjoyed writing that.) It is now entirely possible for you to have a custom made cross pendant like hers!

Learn more after the jump!

This beauty came across our eyes via Ladies, if you haven’t heard of Gemvara, well, now you have. They have more than 1,500 designs that you can customize with more than 25 gemstones and nearly 10 precious metals.

Check out this little number — just like Kate’s!

This diamond and white sapphire, custom made pendant retails at a little over $750, but Gemvara offers it to you for only $403! I know someone must have a birthday, anniversary or some such coming up…


As an added bonus (and because I will never get tired of THE Ring), our dear friend Ashley told us about a great deal she found on It’s a very nice size blue stone surrounded by 16 little sparklers for only $18.00. An even better bonus? It’s a stretchy ring, for those (ahem) days after a wee bit too much wine and yummy salty things! We love to hear and collaborate with our readership, so thanks Ashley – great find!

    Hi, Like I wrote at FB, she had that cross for many years, first I’ve seen it at Van Cutsem wedding in 2005.

    A side note on her necklaces; if you’ll notice in all her pictures, Kate never has the mundane issue of the clasp twisting around to the front of her necklaces. There is a simple fix to this annoying issue. Get your jeweler to bond (solder) the pendant onto the chain. You won’t be able to interchange your pendants, but you will never again take a picture and find your clasp next to your pendant. Had it done to all my necklaces and it works beautifully!

    Thanks, Anna! I wonder if it was a gift from her parents – or William? 🙂

      Well, she knew William already, but I have no idea really…
      Some wondered that the cross is by Robinson Pelham. There is very similar cross, called Grain set diamond cross, however Kate’s has a different way to put it on the necklace. The one by Pelham, has a suspension like most pendants by which you can put it on the necklace. Hope you understand what I mean 🙂

    Lo – that’s very good advice! There is nothing more annoying that realizing the clasp is twisted around to the front 😦 I will definitely remember that next time I am at the jeweler’s (ha!)

      I have too many pendants and too little necklaces to use that advice, however if someone have pendant with matching necklace and wears only it, then it is a great advice, cause it is very annoying.
