Kate Middleton never takes off her Art Deco diamond brooch


A discreet jewel with old charm that the Princess of Wales had also added to her gala outfit this week. But where does it come from?

Scrutinized at each appearance, day and night, Catherine Middleton's outfits always contain a good number of personal messages.

On the jewelry side, as on the side of her outfits, the Princess of Wales displays a pronounced taste for upcycling and rotates a set now known to all: between rings, earrings inherited from Lady Diana or older adornments transmitted directly by the Queen Elizabeth II to the future Queen of England.

Yet a new fetish seems to have recently been added to the closed-circuit list of the one the United Kingdom nicknames "Thrifty Kate" (Kate the thrifty).

In her sights, a diamond brooch forged in the purest Art Deco style by Bentley & Skinner, which she wears either on her coat or, like last November 22, in a magnetic sparkle on her royal scarf.

A fragment of the past in platinum and diamonds estimated at more than 16,000 euros that Kate Middleton would have received to mark her fortieth birthday.

If we often think of Garrard or Cartier, Bentley & Skinner has also been a jeweler attached to the crown since the reign of Victoria under the name of Skinner & Co, before changing its name in 1997. A house with a rich heritage who also lent a number of tiaras and period jewelry for the filming of Downton Abbey.
