Back in 2012, the Duchess of Cambridge debuted an accessory which we would not only continue to see on her for years to come, but that would quickly become one of the most easily accessible repliKate items. The Duchess delighted in a pair of Azuni London Athena Gemstone drop earrings (now called the “Kate” earring) that were versatile, affordable and stylish enough for any admirer of the Duchess’ style to add to their own collections.
As we approach Mother’s Day in North America, we teamed up with the great people at Azuni to share more about these gorgeous earrings that would be a perfect gift for any Mother on this special day – and also offer an exciting giveaway where we will gift two readers with pairs from the Gemstone collection!
Kate first wore the Azuni earrings publicly in Tuvalu on the 2012 Royal Jubilee Tour. The Aqua Chalcedony stones were a perfect match to the tropical backdrop and they obviously hit a note with royal fans as well, the first iteration of the earring selling out in no time. Ashley Marshall, founder and designer of Azuni London, had always sought his inspiration from his extensive global travels and these stunning gems fit the bill perfectly for Kate on that day. Kate has subsequently worn the earrings to a friend’s wedding as well as a shopping trip.
The earrings have become one of the most easily accessible repliKates for two reasons. Azuni continued to produce the earrings after Kate wore them (Azuni shares that the ‘Kate earring’ is still one of their best sellers) and the fact that they are very affordable. The Kate earring retails for £26.50.
Since the time Kate first wore the earrings, Azuni has released countless new colours and combinations of the Athena. They are truly the perfect earring for any Kate fan – or really any jewelry fan – because of their versatility. They can just as easily go from wedding guest to jeans while out shopping.
The photo of Kate shopping in London above is from 2013 when she was pregnant with Prince George and we thought the perfect tie in to our Mother’s Day giveaway. We are so excited to offer two WWKD readers a chance to add a pair of Azuni gems to their jewelry boxes (or offer to their moms this Mother’s Day).
We have one pair of the Amethyst purple and gold earrings to giveaway, as well as one pair of the Smoky Quartz and gold earrings. The contest is open to readers worldwide, all you need to do is enter below. First choice on colour will be granted to the first random winner that is selected, second winner will receive the other colour. Good luck!
