The Royal Wedding in jewellery


 

Wasn't Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding just glorious? And what a feast for the eyes, with so many gorgeous outfits on show.

We're taking a closer look at jewellery trends here, and giving you our pick of the best  looks.

Meghan's wedding jewellery style

It's interesting to note that Meghan went for a gold engagement ring and wedding band, very much telling us that the trend towards gold jewellery is going no where!

 

The engagement ring contains two jewels from the late Princess Diana's very own jewellery collection, set next to a diamond from Botswana, a country that the couple spent time in while they were dating.

If you follow us on social media, you'll have seen that Meghan went for a classic stud earring, designed by Cartier. It's not too dissimilar to our very own sterling silver, platinum plated Moon Drop Studs.

In addition to the gorgeous studs, she wore this beautiful bracelet, also by Cartier.

Her tiara was a gift from the Queen's own collection, the Queen Mary's Diamond Bandeau tiara which dates back to 1893 and was a gift to the Queen's grandmother.

The best of the rest

In keeping with this season’s key jewellery trend, the statement earring, we saw the majority of the best dressed at the Royal Wedding let their ears do the talking!

First up we love anything that Meghan’s former Suits co-star Gina Torres wears, and she didn’t disappoint in this gorgeous Castelleros dress. But it was the beautiful ear climber that was the focal for us:



The Duchess of Cambrige looked gorgeous in a Philip Treacy Hat, Alexander McQueen dress and Jimmy Choo shoes. She pared the outfit with drop earrings featuring large pear and oval shaped lemon quartz stones surrounded by diamonds, retailing at over £4000.

America's very own Queen, Oprah Winfrey went for diamond drop earrings to go with her blush Stella McCartney outfit.

Not everyone chose to make their earrings the focal of their accessories. Serena Williams wore a beautiful Bulgari necklace to the ceremony.

And wowed us in this stunning Valentino outfit at the reception:

And we've saved one of the best for last, close friend to Meghan and actress Priyanka Chopra. Just look at those 18kt gold and diamond lightning bolt earrings she wore to the ceremony.

But it was her evening look that we LOVE. Just look at those earrings:
