8 Surprisingly Affordable Favorites in Kate Middleton’s Jewelry Collection

The Princess of Wales may have diamond-encrusted heirloom jewels at her fingertips, but some of her most frequently worn pieces are surprisingly affordable.

Mixing high and low has always been a hallmark of Kate’s style. Think: a pair of $23 shoulder-grazing floral earrings from Zara, paired with a white floor-length, one-shouldered Alexander McQueen at the 2023 BAFTAs. Or the $18 ASOS twisted golden hoops Middleton wore in 2021, with an all-red look that included a Christopher Kane pleated skirt.

As the Princess celebrates her 42nd birthday, we look back at some of her greatest high street jewelry hits—and where you can shop them.

The $189 Nura Baroque Pearl Pendant Necklace, Monica Vinader

Jackie Kennedy’s well-known quote (“Pearls are always appropriate”) could well have inspired Kate’s approach to royal style. At $189 Monica Vinader’s Nura baroque pearl necklace is one of the most affordable pieces in her collection of pearls, worn most notably on her official visit to Denmark in 2022, first over a textured Zara red blazer and then to accessorize a double-breasted grey coat with black velvet details.

The $64 Chunky Knot Baroque Pearl Earrings, Shyla London

These Shyla London earrings, which feature organically shaped pearls suspended from a large golden knot, are another high-street purchase in Kate’s collection of pearls. At Wimbledon in 2023, she paired them with a now sold-out $100 bracelet from her favorite French label, Sézane, made of pearls and golden beads.

The Pompom Tassel Drop Earrings, Kate Spade New York

On occasion, Kate’s demure and timeless style takes a walk on the wild side—which, when you’re a senior royal, amounts to adding unexpected accessories to a look. These red pompom tassel earrings by Kate Spade New York highlight the Princess of Wales’s soft spot for less traditional statement jewelry.

The $260 Round Stilla Pendant Set with Lapis Lazuli, Astley Clarke

Kate has long had a penchant for blue, from her sharply tailored navy suits to flowing, silk summer dresses in aquamarine. So, it’s natural to see hints of the hue popping up in her favorite jewels, such as this necklace by Astley Clark, which is set with an intense shade of lapis lazuli. This stone, traditionally associated with royalty, can be yours for $260.

The $400 Crystal Drop Earrings, O’Nitaa London

Kate often swaps out her beloved pearls for striking statement pendant earrings. During her trips to Pakistan and India, she’s embraced South Asian influences by donning dazzling disc-shaped earrings crafted by O’Nitaa, dipped into pastel-colored gems.
