As everyone knows, there was a Royal Wedding on yesterday!
I didn't set out to watch the entire event but ended up doing so because it was such a sweet wedding!
I, like everyone else, was mainly interested in seeing Catherine's gown, but I also had a bit of an obsession to see what sort of a wedding band she would wear with her gorgeous Engagement ring.
18-carat white gold ring with a 12-carat oval sapphire & 14 round diamonds
Her veil was held in place by a 1936 Cartier 'halo' tiara, which was lent to her by The Queen.
Her earrings were designed & made by London jeweller, Robinson Pelham. They are diamond-set oak leaves with a pear shaped diamond set drop & a pave set diamond acorn suspended in the centre.
The earrings were a wedding gift to the bride from her parents for her Wedding Day.
Their design was inspired by the Middleton family's new coat of arms, which include oak leaves & acorns.
The Wedding band was made by Wartski, a London family jewellery business founded in 1865, that have held Royal appointments as jeweller's to H.M the Queen & The Prince of Wales.
The plain slim gold band was made from a piece of Welsh gold, as is the tradition for Royal brides.
The gold has been in the family for many years & was given to Prince William by his grandmother, The Queen as a gift to mark his Wedding.
Prince William has chosen not to wear a Wedding ring.
All the best to the beautiful couple.
