Kate Middleton is well-known for her impeccable style and flawless fashion choices. In fact, Princess of Wales is so mindful about what she wears that her jewelry often pays tribute to those who are dear to her heart. She was spotted this year wearing several accessories with subtle messages. Let’s take a look at a few of these pieces.
Earrings for Female Empowerment
Middleton visited Royal Surrey County Hospital on October 5th. The princess was dressed in a classic monochromatic ensemble, paired with dangling jewel earrings. While Middleton looked stunning in her bright yellow Karen Millen dress and earrings, there was a secret message to the earrings about female empowerment.
The earrings are part of British jewelry brand Emily Mortimer’s “Hera” collection. Hera is the Greek name for the goddess of fertility, marriage, and women. It was also believed that Hera protected women during childbirth. These earrings are a perfect choice for a maternity unit!

Pearls Fit For A Queen…And A Princess
On November 12, the princess paid tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth II by wearing a pair of the monarch’s beloved pearls. Middleton looked amazing in a black cinched jacket paired with a pleated sleeve when the royal family met for the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance. The pearl choker was however the highlight of this beautifully coordinated ensemble.
In the 1970s, the Japanese Pearl Choker was ordered by the former monarch. In fact, the pearl necklace is said to be one of the late queen’s favorites as she wore the dazzling piece on several occasions.

Celebrate Your Life With Jewelry
As the Princess of Wales celebrated the legacy of Queen Elizabeth II just prior to the queen’s funeral, Middleton paid homage through her accessories. When Middleton and Prince William arrived at Buckingham Palace to receive the late monarch’s coffin, the princess celebrated Elizabeth by donning a string of pearls.
Although Middleton adores pearl earrings, she doesn’t often wear the pearls around her neck. When she does, it’s often a tribute to the late queen.

Middleton Isn’t The Only Royal To Pay Tribute Through Jewelry
Though the Princess of Wales is known for sharing messages through accessories, she’s not the only member of the royal family to do so. Meghan Markle has also been known to do this.
Markle wore a piece that had an important message on it to a UN Nelson Mandela celebration in June.
A pinky ring by Shiffon Co was worn by the Duchess of Sussex. The brand’s name is taken from the saying “the shift is on” in regard to women’s equality. In fact, the pinky ring was one of the first pieces designed by the company’s founder and was designed as a commitment to pay it forward and support women.
