Buy Kate Middleton's Necklace for Claudia Bradby

Elegant, sophisticated and effortlessly chic are just some of the words used by fashion experts to describe Kate Middleton‘s classic sense of style. So when we heard that the princess-to-be had collaborated on a necklace design with jeweler Claudia Bradby, we couldn’t wait to share the details. The simple but feminine silver pendant was commissioned by Middleton back in 2007 for British retailer Jigsaw, where she worked as an accessories buyer. Originally for the teen market, the British designer has reissued the pendant with a longer chain to commemorate the royal engagement. “Kate was very clear in what she wanted,” Bradby told PEOPLE of Middleton’s involvement (they met three times during the design process). “She wanted a very simple bean pendant that a mother and daughter could both wear together,” she said, adding: “It was completely her initiative because she thought there was a gap in the market for something real and sophisticated, that had longevity for that age group.” And the final result? A silver bean pendant, rose quartz and freshwater charm on a silver chain, priced at 46 pounds ($73). Now fans of Prince William‘s fiancé can own a little piece of royal history themselves. “She is a classy girl and I genuinely remember thinking that William was very lucky to be going out with her – I thought she would be a huge asset to the royal family one day,” said Bradby.

This is an absolutely lovely piece that has a timeless quality.

If this is indicative of the sense of style Miss Middleton will be bringing to the Royal family we are in for a treat.

I will be glad when they marry, because all these Kate Middleton stories are annoying, Kate Middleton goes to the bathroom, Kate Middleton eats her breakfast…are those the next headlines…

Because Iam tired of seeing stories about this woman every minute of the day..Iam jealous, when I look on British websites people saying they are tired of hearing about her.. Sorry the jealous card doesn’t always work.. Iam not hoping to marrying in a Title only British family with a scandlous past after 8 yrs of waiting…Sorry!
