The Duchess of Cambridge's jewelry has long delighted royal fans, but many might not have known about the heartfelt wedding present she reportedly received from Duchess Camilla. 

Duchess Camilla is understood to have given Kate Middleton a stunning golden charm bracelet as a gift for her wedding to Prince William back in 2011. However, despite the bracelet’s beauty, it has not been seen in a public engagement since that year, it has been claimed. 

The bracelet consists of a series of golden links, as well as a disc, which has two letter Cs engraved on it.

This is believed to be in reference to their names, Camilla and Catherine.

Duchess Catherine could be seen wearing this heartfelt wedding present at Wimbledon in 2011. She was also reportedly seen with it on several other occasions throughout that year.

However it’s been suggested that the Duchess hasn’t worn the bracelet for a public engagement since 2011. It may perhaps be one of the best wedding gifts, but it seems to be a very rarely glimpsed gift indeed.

Who did Kate Middleton’s engagement ring belong to?

Famously, Prince William proposed to his then-girlfriend Kate Middleton in Kenya in 2010 with the engagement ring that used to belong to his mother, the late Princess Diana. 

Set with a stunning sapphire as well as diamonds, this is perhaps one of the most eye-catching engagement rings worn by members of the Royal Family.

The now-Duchess of Cambridge also wears a simple gold wedding band made by Welsh gold. Welsh gold is believed to have been used for wedding rings of the royal family since 1923.

Some eagle-eyed royal fans might have even spotted the presence of a third ring on Duchess Catherine’s ring finger. The piece is a white gold and diamond eternity ring which was given to her by Prince William, following the birth of Prince George.

It seems that like many of us, Duchess Catherine loves wearing her key jewelry pieces.
