Kate Middleton Stuns with Giant Diamonds
Black tie with a hint of sparkle? No problem for one super glam Duchess. PHOTOS: Kate Middleton's Many Royal Looks Kate Middleton made a grand entrance for her first engagement of 2014 looking incredibly royal. In honor of the Portrait Gala 2014, held at the National Portrait Gallery in London, the 32-year-old flaunted some major jewels that would have made Elizabeth Taylor blush. READ: Why Kate Middleton Got Royally Irritated With The Queen Around Middleton’s dainty neck was the famous Nizam of Hyderabad necklace loaned to her by the Queen, also known as her husband Prince William’s grandma. The stunning accessory was given to Queen Elizabeth II as a wedding gift back in November 1947. READ: Hey Kate Middleton! Kim Kardashian's Eyeing Up Your Wedding Dress The DailyMail reports that the Nizam of Hyderabad isn’t your typical diamond pendant. First created by Cartier in the 1930s, it features “a long chain of 38 diamonds with a diamond-encrusted snap.” Not enough jewels for you? It also highlights a “detachable double-drop pendant, 13 emerald-cut diamonds, and a pear-shaped drop.” PHOTOS: Kate Middleton And Other Famous Folks With Their Dogs Despite the glamorous getup, Middleton also chose to stay true to her thrifty roots. The mother of Prince George wore a floor-length sapphire-hue gown with a low sweetheart neckline, a waist-whittline black velvet belt and chiffon off-the-shoulder sleeves, which she first wore in October 2013 for the 100 Women in Hedge Funds gala dinner in London. It was created by one of her favorite designers, Jenny Packham, and it’s part of the designer’s autumn/winter collection. PHOTOS: Kate Middleton Enjoys a Glamorous Night Out for Charity As expected, Middleton’s signature glossy tresses and minimal makeup perfectly complemented her most gorgeous accessory ever.
