The acorn design for Kate Middleton
These acorn earrings, worn by Kate Middleton to her royal wedding, were not designed by a big name on Bond Street. They were actually designed by Robinson Pelham, a small jeweller in Pimlico. Kate’s parents commissioned them for their daughter’s wedding. Robinson Pelham also designed the floral-style earrings worn by Kate’s sister, Pippa Middleton. The tourmaline and diamond pendant and earrings worn by the mother of the bride, Carole Middleton, were also their creation.
A number of jewellery publications covered these earrings at the time, including The Jewellery Editor. It seems that the acorn design of the earrings was inspired by the Middleton family’s new coat of arms. These featured acorns and oak leaves. Historically, acorns have come to represent fertility, growth, fresh starts and potential. This mirrors how a great oak tree grows from a tiny acorn – so this unassuming nut has a clear symbolic tie-in with weddings.
The striking design also complements the 1936 Cartier Halo tiara worn by Kate, and lent to her by the Queen for her wedding day.
These earrings were not just for the wedding
The acorn earrings have been worn by Kate Middleton several times since the Royal Wedding. This included an outing at a Royal Order of The Garter Service (according to The Duchess Diary).
These beautiful, dangly earrings are made from quality materials and the pin is solid sterling silver.
Acorns are not the only nature-based design that Kate Middleton has favoured. We also feature a popular maple leaf brooch (original design also worn by Queen Elizabeth II). The silver fern brooch, iconic to New Zealand, was also worn by Kate Middleton and the queen.
