The gold bracelet was a wedding gift from Kate's step-mother-in-law, The Duchess of Cornwall. The disc charm has Kate's monogram on one side, and Camilla's on the other. Both Cs are under a coronet, but Kate's C has an extra curl, while Camilla's is surrounded by a circle. We haven't seen it in a while but the Duchess wore it quite frequently following the royal wedding at events such as Armed Forces Day and Wimbledon.
Below we see Kate's and Camilla's monograms on official letters.

Every girl loves Tiffany jewellery, and Kate is no exception. One of her go-to bracelets is her Tiffany & Co. Diamonds By The Yard Bracelet.

The $525 Elsa Perretti design features round diamonds in sterling silver with three bezel-set diamonds separated by a chain. Kate has worn it with a disk charm on several occasions.

Kate has only worn her Catherine Zoraida 'Spread Your Wings' bracelet once thus far, at a reception hosted by His Majesty The Agong in Malaysia. The gold bracelet has four gold leaves side by side and a single leaf at its closure. I mentioned before, this was the event where many of us were expecting a tiara but the 18 carat piece worked with the McQueen dress.
Next, we look at a heart charm bracelet worn by Kate at Harry Aubrey-Fletcher's wedding. It remains unidentified. Perhaps a gift from William? It's a lovely piece.
Moving on to some serious bling, we previously looked at Kate's diamond and ruby necklace which looks as though it can be converted into a tiara. Today we take a look at the matching bracelet. It is beautiful. The cluster bracelet is truly a statement piece.
Kate debuted a stunning diamond bracelet at a BAFTA event in Los Angeles in 2011. It is believed they are part of a wedding gift from Prince Charles. As we can see the Art Deco design is composed of flower clusters alternating with baguette diamonds.
The bracelet came with matching earrings.
And possibly the bow shaped ring Kate wore to the 100 Women In Hedge Funds Gala in October 2013.
We also look at Kate's garnet and pearl ring. It has been in her possession since at least 2005 and Kate has been photographed wearing it on multiple occasions both pre and post wedding. Diana's Jewels correctly noted garnet is Kate's birthstone while pearl is William's. I expect it may have been a very early gift from the Prince to his future bride. It obviously holds sentimental significance for Kate.
Finally, we take a look at Kate's watch. The Duchess has been wearing one much more frequently since Prince George was born. Below we look at her stainless steel and gold plated piece initially thought to be by Gucci.
It is in fact a two tone Tissot watch, as identified by My Small Obsessions. The Swiss firm was founded in 1853 and since 1983 a member of The Swatch Group Ltd.

In our next 'Kate Loves' post we'll conclude our jewellery series with a predictions post taking an in depth look at pieces from The Royal Collection and Princess Diana's collection which we hope to see Kate wear in the future. I have
ridiculously very much enjoyed researching tiaras and look forward to sharing it with you all :)
