The Bride's Jewellery

Prince William and Catherine Middleton chose Wartski to make the Wedding Ring for Miss Middleton.

The veil is made of layers of soft, ivory silk tulle with a trim of hand-embroidered flowers, which weres embroidered by the Royal School of Needlework. 

The veil is held in place by a Cartier 'halo' tiara, lent to Miss Middleton by The Queen.  The 'halo' tiara was made by Cartier in 1936 and was purchased by The Duke of York (later King George VI) for his Duchess (later Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother) three weeks before he succeeded his brother as King.  The tiara was presented to Princess Elizabeth (now The Queen) by her mother on the occasion of her 18th birthday.  

The Bride's earrings, by Robinson Pelham, were diamond-set stylised oak leaves with a pear shaped diamond set drop and a pavé set diamond acorn suspended in the centre. Inspiration for the design comes from the Middleton family's new coat of arms, which includes acorns and oak leaves. The earrings were made to echo the tiara. The earrings were a personal gift to the Bride from her parents for her Wedding Day.
