I really enjoy looking at Kate's jewelry collection. Her sapphire engagement ring and earrings are classic and elegant and it has made me think a lot about heirloom jewelry. Growing up we never had much money and the one nice piece (my mother's ruby ring) was stolen from me in college. We visited the Czech Republic last month and my husband allowed me to commission a few garnet pieces while we were there. I am excited to finally wear them because garnets are his birthstone and also because I look forward to sharing them with my sisters and nieces in the future. All the pieces in the photo above are worn by Kate on a regular basis and I can especially see the Cartier pieces as future heirlooms.

As a princess, Kate is rarely required to carry more than some make-up in her bag and she is often seen carrying a simple clutch both during the day and for nighttime activities. I can only pull off small clutches and minauderies with formalwear, and have to carry a tote or hobo during the day. But again, the Duchess of Cambridge is often photographed with her favorite bags repeatedly.
