While many people associate Princess Kate with her sparkling oval Ceylon blue sapphire engagement ring (with its 12 carat shimmery faceted blue sapphire and a halo of 14 diamonds set in 18-carat white gold) — the royal has a collection of plenty of other lavish and luxurious pieces in her jewelry box.

In fact, many of the princess’ most valuable jewels are not found around her neck or on her fingers but rather adorning her wrist.

For special occasions and ultra-glam evenings, the mom of three is inclined to wear glistening and gleaming diamond bracelets.

Here are 9 of Kate Middleton’s Most Dazzling Diamond Bracelets:

1. Queen Mary’s Diamond Bar (Chain Link) Choker Bracelet

Once worn by Queen Mary as a statement choker, this beautiful art deco bracelet was created by Garrard & Company in 1932. The stunning piece has appeared on the princess for a few formal occasions since its October 2015 debut at the Chinese state banquet. Kate has donned the bracelet for a black-tie dinner at the British Embassy in Paris in 2017 and to a summer fundraising gala at Houghton Hall in June 2016. Queen Elizabeth II’s grandmother Queen Mary wore the thick bar bracelet featuring linear links as a collar necklace; the Queen Mother (Elizabeth I) wore the piece as a bracelet in her 75th birthday portraits taken at Windsor Castle by Norman Parkinson.


2. The Wedding Gift Bracelet 

A beautiful and intricate bracelet featuring sparkling geometric motifs, this sentimental wrist accessory has a romantic royal heritage. The thick platinum and diamond bracelet has notable Grecian influence and was designed with the late Prince Phillip’s dismantled mother’s tiara (Princess Andrew of Greece and Denmark). The former Duke of Edinburgh gave his bride Queen Elizabeth the piece on their wedding day in 1947; the bracelet along with the Queen’s engagement ring, were crafted from the stones in Philip’s mother’s tiara by luxury Bond Street jeweler Philip Antrobus.


3. Diamond and Emerald Bracelet

Part of an elaborate and expensive suite gifted to Princess Kate upon her marriage to Prince William, this eye-catching emerald bracelet made its royal debut in New York in December 2014 when the British beauty wore the piece at a dinner at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Comprised of white and yellow diamonds illuminating a large square emerald stone in the center, the gifted bracelet is noteworthy for its size and sparkle. Plus, the glamorous green bracelet is believed to have additional glimmer courtesy of a white gold or platinum fold-over clasp.


4. The Mouawad Ruby and Diamond Bracelet 

For the Sun Military Awards in December 2011, the princess looked immaculate in a strapless black velvet Alexander McQueen gown plus a captivating ruby bracelet. Designed for Her Royal Highness by family-owned Lebanese jeweler Mouawad, the modern bangle features alternating diamond and rubies with diamond circle accents and a floral motif. The princess’ matching diamond necklace has rows of ruby flowers on diamond stems at different alternating row lengths. To add a bit of intrigue, the princess kept the coordinating earrings hidden in her jewelry collection for many years before wearing them in public; she stepped out in the long dangling Mouawad ruby earrings at the Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey in a burgundy Catherine Walker coat in March 2020.


5. Emerald Tassel Parure Bracelet

Resplendent in a frothy tulle green Jenny Packham gown sprinkled with sparkly sequin for a state dinner in Jamaica in March 2022, the princess was the epitome of emerald elegance. Kate paired the confectionary ballerina ballgown with a new bracelet from the Queen’s collection. The dazzling wrist accessory features two ropes of white diamonds accenting a green emerald stone which is encircled by twists of white diamonds. Kate’s dazzling bracelet perfectly complemented not only her gorgeous green gown but also  the matching emerald tassel earrings.


6. Round Halo Cluster Diamond Bracelet

Kate wore this art deco diamond bracelet consisting of halo-set diamonds and flower clusters with baguette shaped diamond pieces for the premiere of Warhorse in London in January 2012 as well as in Singapore in 2012. She later donned the diamond flower cluster bracelet for a Tusk Awards ceremony in September 2013 and a SportsBall gala in November 2013. In addition, the royal beauty wore the bracelet and coordinating earrings with a white Lela Rose cocktail dress called the “Circle Lace Trim Dress” while on tour in Australia in April 2014. The bracelet and matching earrings are believed to have been a wedding gift to the princess. 


7. Tiffany & Co Elsa Peretti Diamonds by the Yard Bracelet

A simple but classic chain bracelet, this accessory is designed in sterling silver with three round brilliant diamonds. The total length of the bracelet is seven inches while the carat total weight is .09. Featuring responsibly sourced diamonds, this layering bracelet has three delicate diamonds on a sterling silver chain. The princess wore the simple three-bezel set diamond bracelet for events in Canada on tour in 2011. Notably, the classic diamond station bracelet isn’t the only piece Princess Kate owns from the high-end American fine jeweler Tiffany & Co. — the princess has also worn the Tiffany Cabochon by the Yard Necklace and the Elsa Peretti Pearls by the Yard Bracelet.


8. The Queen Mother’s Quatrefoil Diamond Bracelet

Often donned by the Queen to the opening of Parliament, this dazzling diamond bracelet is one of Kate’s most stunning jewelry pieces. Featuring a large ornamental quatrefoil design of “four leaves” or petals, this bracelet first appeared on the Wales matriarch in November 2017 at a gala dinner for Anna Freud. Later, she wore the bracelet with an ethereal white one-shoulder Alexander McQueen dress at Royal Albert Hall for the BAFTA Awards in February 2019.


9. Butler and Wilson Clear Crystal Bracelet

While not one of Kate’s loaned royal or inherited heirloom jewels, this throwback crystal bracelet appeared on the princess before her days as a palace dweller. The affordable and sparkly floral strand statement accessory has a chan clasp and can be dressed up or down. Kate wore the beautiful bedazzled bracelet to a 2009 Starlight Children’s Foundation event at the Saatchi Gallery in a daring low-cut Issa London grey gown.
