Kate Middleton donned £62 hoop earrings from Welsh female designer
The Duchess of Cambridge showcased her support for local businesses yesterday by donning a pair of earrings by a Welsh jewellery designer, as she and Prince William made a series of visits in the country.
Kate Middleton, 38, selected the £62 18k gold plated Alia hoops crafted by female designer Hayley Jones for her brand Spells of Love for the engagements in Barry Island and Cardiff.
The mother-of-three recycled a blue floral Emilia Wickstead gown for the occasion, sweeping her hair into a classic bouncy wave, and tucked her locks behind her ears to reveal the dangling earrings.
The brand is described online as crafting pieces with a mix of ‘bohemian feminine influence’ and ‘trend-led modern aesthetic’, with a focus on ‘ethical production’.

Arriving for the visits yesterday, the royal opted for a natural makeup look, sweeping a dark eyeshadow across her lids and a touch of blusher on her cheeks.
The hoops are described online as ‘best selling’ and are sent to customers in a ‘100 per cent plastic free and biodegradable bag.’
The brand is described online as a ‘demi-fine jewellery company’ which operates from ‘a small studio in the heart of Wales’.
It was launched in August 2019, and has since become a favourite for British reality stars and models including Emma Louise Connelly, MIC’s Sophie Habbo and TOWIE’s Chloe Lewis.

The pieces are described as being ‘designed with love and intention’ and ‘mix bohemian feminine influence with trend led and modern aesthetic’.
Hayley creates her pieces in an ‘eco and ethically conscious’ way, designing her pieces ‘with the intention of making women feel beautiful’ in order to ‘enhance their inner beauty.’
The Duchess is known for her love of affordable jewellery, and often selects earrings by high street brands including Accessorize.
She donned the earrings as she joined Prince William for a visit to Gavin & Stacey’s slot machine arcade in South Wales on Wednesday.
