You can imagine our excitement at the Azuni London office when we got the phone call to say that Kate Middleton (now HRH Duchess of Cambridge) was wearing our beautiful Azuni Athena drop stud earrings in aqua. Looking supremely happy in the picture above on her last day in Tuvalu whatkatewore.com were the first to alert us to the fact that Kate was wearing our earrings. Needless to say, there was much excitement in the office and phones began to buzz!
Chosen by the Duchess of Cambridge herself on one of her regular shopping trips to Peter Jones, Kate has been spotted wearing these gorgeous earrings on at least another two occaisions.
To A Friend's Wedding in Oxfordshire
Shortly after her own wedding, the Duchess of Cambridge is photographed in Oxfordshire, sporting her favourite little gemstone studs at the wedding of family friend Thierry Kelaart to Patrick Heathcote-Amory with her sister, Pippa, her mother, Carole, and her father, Michael, who gave away the bride.
Shopping Trip to Chelsae Harbour
And who better to demonstrate the that these earrings can be worn not only to a dress up, but look equally great dressed down. On a yet another outing - a shopping trip to Chelsea harbour, Kate chose to wear our earrings again with simple denim jeans and white trainers.
Needless to say, everybody was wanting to wear what’s become to be known at the office as ‘the Kate earring’. Over five airlines were snatching them up on their international flights - and we were (and still are) proud to be flying the British Airways flag amongst many other airlines.
And now, two years on, the ‘Kate earring’ is still one of Azuni Jewellery's best sellers from the Athena collection. A beautiful faceted briolet hangs from a textured 24kt gold plated disc , for a simple elegant look - fit for a Goddess. It is available in a selection of stone colours including Amethyst, Labradorite, Green Chalcendony, Garnet, Pink Chalecedony, Smokey Quartz and Kate’s choice of Aqua Chalcedony. We now also hold three different sizes of stone to suit your taste.
