Gift the Jewelry Kate Middleton Wears to Your Girl, and She'll Love You For Life
Plenty of Kate Middleton's jewels are gifts from the royal family, pieces passed down from past generations that she's got the honor of pulling out for fancy events. But Kate also wears a lot of shoppable earrings, watches, and necklaces from retailers as affordable as Zara to luxury brands you might browse if you needed a present for someone special.
Ahead, we rounded up some of her go-to jewelers and selected a stylish, holiday-festive pick from each one of them. Whether you're prepared to spend the big bucks for someone you love or you're more in tune to stocking stuffers, you'll find something here for the Kate Middleton fan who keeps track of her looks, we promise.
Kate wears these Annoushka pearl drop earrings often, and they're actually affixed to Kiki McDonough hoops, merging two of her go-to jewelry brands.
Our Pick: Kiki McDonough Grace White Topaz & Diamond Stud Earrings
Gift her the simple, beautiful Kiki McDonough Grace White Topaz & Diamond Halo Stud Earrings in 18K Yellow Gold ($1,190).
Oscar de la Renta
Kate's Oscar de la Renta pearl sun star earrings are a lovely burst to so many of her outfits, brightening up neutral coats and peeking out from underneath her fascinators.
Kate's Cartier timepiece is from the brand's Ballon de Bleu collection, and she wore it here with a Lela Rose dress during her visit to Australia in 2014.
Kate wore this $35 Zara necklace with a Roland Mouret gown at a performance of Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom in London in 2013. The piece looked completely glamorous with her look — she could've fooled us!

Our Pick: Annoushka Alchemy Bauble Ring
The Annoushka Alchemy 18ct white gold bauble ring ($570) is a simple add-on and a gorgeous, wear-with-anything piece.
Tiffany & Co.
Naturally, Kate's engagement photos were styled to allow her sapphire ring to take center stage. So she opted for an earring and necklace set from Tiffany & Co. for the finishing touch, both pieces from the Elsa Peretti collection.

This Tiffany & Co. Elsa Peretti Tanzanite Color By The Yard Sterling Silver Necklace ($520) comes close to the one Kate wore for her special day.

Links of London
Kate has a handful of earrings from the brand, but her Effervescence Bubble Stiletto pair were worn with this memorable Jenny Packham dress at the 10th Annual Ark gala — it was her first red carpet appearance following her nuptials.

You know it! She'll go crazy for the exact Links of London Effervescence Bubble Stiletto Earrings ($225) Kate wore.

During Kate's 2012 Malaysia tour, she attended a dinner in a gorgeous gold Alexander McQueen dress. Kate highlighted the shine with her double leaf earrings from Catherine Zoraida.

Our Pick: Cassandra Goad Temple of Heaven Gold Earrings
You might be splurging on the Cassandra Goad Temple of Heaven Gold Earrings ($2,270), but she'd recognize these babies anywhere — and be super, superappreciative you found them.
