You can imagine our excitement at the Azuni London office when we got the phone call to say that Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, was wearing our beautiful earrings in aqua. Looking supremely happy in the picture above on her last day in Tuvalu whatkatewore.com was the first to alert us to the fact that Kate was wearing our drop stone 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 stones earrings on at least another two occasions.
Shortly after her own wedding, the Duchess of Cambridge was photographed in Oxfordshire, sporting her favourite little stones earrings 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.
And who better to demonstrate that these earrings can be worn not only to a dress-up but that it can look equally stunning dressed down. On a yet another outing, a shopping trip to Chelsea harbour, Kate chose to wear our drop stone earrings again with simple denim jeans and white trainers.
Needless to say, everybody wanted to wear what has now become 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.
Now, two years on, the ‘Kate earring’ is still one of Azuni Jewellery's best sellers from the Athena collection. A beautifully faceted briolette hangs from a textured 24 kt gold plated disc, for a simple elegant look - fit for a Goddess.
These pieces are available in a selection of stone colours including Amethyst, Labradorite, Green Chalcedony, Garnet, Pink Chalcedony, Smokey Quartz and Kate’s choice of Aqua Chalcedony.
We now also hold three different sizes of stone to suit your taste.
