For the occasion Charlene wore a custom Terrence gown (that we will discuss later) paired with a set of modern jewels.
The set was created especially by South African jeweler, Mark Gold.
The earrings are “made of Black Rhodium plated 18ct White Gold, black diamonds, purple amethyst and Briole cut black onyx”.
The ring is made of black diamonds and an amethyst. The contemporary jewels were handmade and took about 3 weeks to manufacture.
This lovely set is now on display in Mark Gold’s store in Durban. And though it was only a loan to the princess, it’s not for sale.
I have to say I was a bit sad when I knew that Princess Charlene doesn’t own these earrings and ring, especially, since the color of these amethysts really suits her, but then I thought that more people get to see these delightful jewels than we’ll ever do with Charlene, No?
