My goodness...they are gorgeous. It makes me so happy to see Kate next to William in photos anymore. They are such a lovely couple...and they must be having an absolute blast!

Does anyone here know whether or not the sapphire earrings Kate has been pictured wearing routinely were a wedding gift?

It also looks as though this white gold bracelet with a single charm on it bearing a coronet and the initial "C" may have also been a wedding gift. You will have to scroll down through the article to see a close up of the bracelet.

Has it been listed anywhere the gifts that Kate received? I'm really interested in the jewelry she was gifted.

Okay, mystery solved.

Kate's sapphire earrings reportedly were a gift from William and are made from his mother's sapphire earrings after being re-worked. I believe the original earrings were gifted to Princess Diana by the Saudi Royal Family.

Her charm bracelet was a gift from Camilla. Each side of the charm bears a "C"...one side has Camilla's royal cypher and the other Kate's. What a lovely gift and gesture by Camilla.

I have had tears of pride, joy and happiness seeing these two together. Their interaction and Williams warmth towards his Princess is more than I had ever expected. Princess Kate was born for this type of royal duty…what a natural.

It’s probably just me, but I’ve seen William steal a glance at Kate and it like he is secretly thinking…”My God, she’s the love of my life and is willing to do all of this public royal duty and she’s brilliant at it.” His love for her shows through in so many different gestures and looks. I AM LOVING THIS ! ! !
