The nation’s affection for Kate, Princess of Wales as a fashion icon undoubtedly increased interest in the Wimbledon Men’s and Women’s Finals.
At the Men’s Final last Sunday, Kate displayed her exquisite taste in fashion with a stunning fitting £750 green midi dress from Roland Mouret with asymmetric shoulder detail.
Kate’s outfits consistently top polls of the best dressed at Wimbledon. But Ben Roberts, the managing director of Clogau and an authority in royal jewellery, explained that Kate’s Wimbledon jewellery was equally iconic.
The Princess donned £45 deep green onyx drop earrings from the London-based brand Milina to the Men’s Final last Sunday.
Ben Roberts shed light on Kate’s jewellery choices: “The Princess of Wales has always been keen on wardrobe recycling and the green onyx earrings have become a beloved favourite of hers.
“Purple and green have been the iconic Wimbledon colours for over a century, and Kate effortlessly embraced the essence of Wimbledon by choosing three shades of green to wear throughout the event.
“However, she reserved her most sophisticated look for the Men’s Final.
“Green, a universally flattering colour and one that Kate often chooses took centre stage in her outfit for the important final, which was perfectly complemented by the addition of green onyx drop earrings.”
In addition, Kate wore a pale green £420 dress from Self Portrait to the Women’s Final last Saturday, coupled with a stunning pair of pearl earrings that gave her look a deeper meaning.
Ben Roberts couldn’t help but notice that Kate’s magnificent pearl cluster earrings were actually a loving tribute to her youngest child, Prince Louis.
She meticulously selected the classic earrings to wear for his christening in 2018.
This heartfelt jewellery decision will undoubtedly touch the young Prince, who Kate confessed was “very upset” to have missed the Wimbledon final, unlike his older two siblings who attended.
Many of the Royal Family’s wedding rings, including those of Queen Camilla and Princess Kate, were made using Welsh gold that was mined from the same mine as Clogau.
A second-generation family firm, Clogau has been making hand-finished, distinctive jewellery for over 30 years.
Its designs are inspired by the natural beauty of Wales and its illustrious history with British royalty.
The Clogau St David’s mine in North Wales has produced gold for many Royal Family wedding rings for the past 100 years.
This rare Welsh gold is still utilised today in all Clogau jewellery. Princess Diana, Princess Kate, Queen Camilla, and Queen Elizabeth II are a few of the royals who had wedding rings made of gold from the Clogau St David’s mine.
