CAROLE BL483-11 S$145 SOLD - going to an excellent new home!

Matching earrings at the request of the buyer.
I was besotted with the Royal wedding. Thats the airy fairy world I like to escape into - I am not into the pomp and stiff upper lip culture per se but I am intrigued by the splendour of their attire, especially for something like what we just witnessed on Friday.

With eyes glued to the goggle box I tried to scrutinise the intrinsic details of the Cathedral, the flamboyant and then the more sedate attire of the guests and then the cherry on top of the cake was the wedding gown of Katherine or the newly bestowed title of "The Duchess of Cambridge". Whilst I loved the dress that Princess Diana wore - she had that English peaches and cream demure persona, The Duchess of Cambridge wore a gown designed by Sarah Burton, creative director of the London fashion house of the late Alexander McQueen. My type of dress - lush and luxe yet classically simple. The beauty of the whole creation went into the details - ivory and white satin gazar with French Chantilly lace......then there's her mother we know where Kathrine gets her classic looks from and whilst she wasn't born an aristocrat, Katherine has the whole package - Class with a capital C.

Now back to this creation of mine. I loved the colour of Mrs Middleton's dress. Whilst it was described as light blue it leant more towards a smokey greyish blue. I couldn't find an exact colour in my collection but I did pick out something quite close.

Sky blue topaz fan shape and faceted, this pendant measures 23.1 x 20.5 x 9.6 and weighs approx 24.33 carats. The necklace features mainly sky blue quartz rondells with 2 larger mystic blue quartz rondells. The pendant has a bail which I've embellished with sapphire swarovski crystals, that opens and allows it to be used on a simple gold chain (not included) and the necklace featured here can be worn on its own too.

Total length of the necklace 20" inclusive of 2" extension chain which ends with a sky blue topaz faceted briolette.
