8 Jewellery Pieces Inspired by Princess Diana and The Royal Wedding of Kate Middleton
It was 2011, Catherine (Kate) Middleton’s grace was captured by the world. She was beautiful, smart, talented, elegant, and at the time, was getting married to the love of her life, Prince William whom many of us single ladies have probably idolized at some stage. She lived the modern-day fairy tale. All eyes were on her including everything she was wearing–from her dresses to her shoes to her hairstyle. And who could ever forget the engagement ring that sparkled on her finger each time she made an appearance in public?
The iconic royal wedding of Duchess and Duke of Cambridge was historical and the beauty of Kate’s engagement ring would imprint on us for decades to come. The ring, a stunning 12-carat oval Ceylon sapphire surrounded by 14 diamonds, was originally selected by Princess Diana before her wedding to Prince Charles in 1981. It was truly iconic in its own right.
At Moi Moi, Oval cut Moissanite and created blue sapphire are available for a smart, modern-day lady like you. Oval cut Moissanite is the perfect alternative to the famous royal engagement ring! Moissanite is considered the most beautiful gem in the world – it is durable for everyday wear, the brilliance is permanent and never becomes cloudy over time, and much more affordable. Most importantly, they have ethical origins!
We have rounded up our jewellery favourites that are, one way or another, inspired by the extravagant wedding that the whole world tuned into (because honestly, there was just too much inspiration from that historic wedding, you know?).
