SPARKLE FOR MARKLE

The Daily Telegraph - Telegraph Magazine - - Sparkle For Markle -

SOME­THING OLD, SOME­THING NEW, some­thing bor­rowed and some­thing blue: the Duchess cov­ered the four bridal tra­di­tions in her jew­ellery alone. She wore an ‘old’ pair of Cartier Galanterie di­a­mond studs she’s worn be­fore; a new di­a­mond bracelet, also by Cartier; and Queen Mary’s ban­deau tiara, bor­rowed from the Queen. Made in 1932 to ac­com­mo­date a brooch Queen Mary had been given as a wed­ding gift in 1893, its clean sil­hou­ette suited the bride per­fectly, with geo­met­ric art-deco mo­tifs pro­vid­ing all the em­bel­lish­ment her Givenchy gown needed. And some­thing blue? The enor­mous Asprey aqua­ma­rine cock­tail ring she wore for the evening re­cep­tion: a gift from her new hus­band, from Diana, Princess of Wales’s col­lec­tion.

Wed­ding guests brought a sense of Hol­ly­wood glam­our, with Amal Clooney and Priyanka Cho­pra wear­ing di­a­mond ear­rings by red-car­pet favourite Lor­raine Schwartz. Lady Kitty Spencer ac­ces­sorised with a Bul­gari yel­low-di­a­mond neck­lace and ear­rings, and Ser­ena Wil­liams chose a vin­tage coin neck­lace by the same house. The Queen, mean­while, made a sub­tle ges­ture of sup­port for the bride by wear­ing the pearl and di­a­mond Rich­mond brooch, which, like the one in the tiara, was a wed­ding gift to Queen Mary.
