Kate Middleton's Olympic Themed Cartier Necklace Costs £49,000!

20 July 2012

When our very own queen of recycling Kate Middleton stepped out in a £515 Olympian blue Stella McCartney dress to attend the National Portrait Gallery yesterday, we thought that was pushing the boat out.

But we are stunned to reveal that the ‘statement’ gold ring Olympic themed necklace that the Duchess of Cambridge wore to accessorise the 60s inspired shift dress costs a staggering £49,000 and is in fact by Cartier.

The white, yellow and rose gold exquisite piece, which is from the jeweller’s Trinity range – features five diamond-studded circles that are held together by a cluster of delicate chains. Now that’s some complicated bling.

And St James Palace have claimed the super expensive necklace is owned by Kate personally. This just gets more confusing. "It's a personal piece which she's had for some time," says a St James's Palace spokesman.

"It's not an official Olympic item but it's appropriate to wear it."

Shocking! Having said that, the necklace was an appropriate accessory for the occasion and looked stunning against the electric blue dress and simple black Prada heels.

The question on everybody's lips about now would be why the Duchess decides to recycle relatively inexpensive dresses when she could just sell this Olympic necklace on Ebay and buy a whole new wardrobe of Alexander McQueen...
