While the Princess of Wales is often drawn to nature inspired accessories including a devotion to fern earrings, acorn necklaces and leaf brooches, she’s still inclined to wear other love-focused ornaments. In fact, the princess has a few cherished heart accessories in her large collection of royal bits and baubles.
Ahead of Valentine’s Day, we take a look at Princess Kate’s most Cupid-centric outfit add-ons including her most romantic jewelry and heart print accessories.
Here are 5 of Kate Middleton’s Most Charming Heart Accessories:
1. Laura Lombardi Louisa Necklace in Gold
This chunky choker has appeared on the princess on one occasion in October 2022 for a BBC radio event to mark World Mental Health Day. Kate paired the 14-karat gold plated brass necklace with its suspended heart shaped pendant with a professional ensemble — a Zara blazer in ecru and wide leg black dress pants.
Why Kate Loves Laura Lombardi: The sustainable designer creates glamorous pieces constructed from raw and recycled materials; the necklace and jewelry designs have an edgy medieval flair with classic European motifs and Old World charm.
2. Kiki McDonough Diamond Leaf/Heart Earrings
Inspired by the grace and elegance of British ballerina Lauren Cuthbertson, these 18-carat yellow gold earrings are designed with a diamond leaf drop pendant shaped like a tiny heart. Worn by Princess Catherine on over 30 occasions, these radiant diamond earrings have just enough sparkle to make a bold statement. Shop the earrings HERE
Why Kate Loves Kiki McDonough: The fine jeweler creates stunning semiprecious stone jewelry pieces and specializes in colorful studs and dramatic drops.
3. Gold Toggle Heart Bracelet
The princess has a few chain link toggle bracelets in her collection. One was a gift from Queen Camilla and another is this unidentified bracelet worn with a seafoam green Joseph silk slip dress with a fringe front. (Kate donned the sleeveless summer dress for a polo match in July 2010.)
4. Beulah London Shibani Heart Scarf in Blue and Red
The princess loves these silk and wool blend scarves for dressing up her solid color styles. Adding a fun and flirty twist on her traditional outfits, these colorful scarves are designed with an allover white heart print.
Why Kate Loves Beulah London: This British fashion company makes feminine clothes with a prairie meets country chic aesthetic. Producing designs which benefit charity and social causes, this royal-approved label provides employment opportunities to vulnerable and previously trafficked women.
5. Merci Maman The Duchess Necklace
A personalized necklace seen on the princess following the birth of Prince George, this 18-carat champagne gold plated chain features engraved discs, removable mini hearts and a baby boy or girl charm. The necklace was given to Kate by her sister Pippa Middleton following the birth of her first son. The charms on Kate’s piece were hand-engraved with Prince George’s name, his date of birth and a small charm with Prince William’s initial. Shop the necklace HERE
Why Kate Loves Merci Maman: The brand’s petite charms are hand-engraved in a Paris workshop with each piece having a special patina that gives all the jewelry designs a unique and distinctive medal finish. The family owned and operated company was given a special accolade by the Queen Elizabeth II in 2017 — Merci won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the International Trade category.
