The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have come back from their honeymoon ready for their first official engagement that took place today at Buckingham Palace where they met the Obamas. But Kate is a true style icon now and as we saw she wore high street from top to toe. Her dress was from Reiss and shoes from LK Bennett.

But what about her costume jewellery? We havnet heard much in terms of where her necklace is from. She wore a statement gold necklace and carried a small black clutch handbag from Anya Hindmarch. These two fashion accessories also make her a favourite amongst us commoners as they are piece of costume jewellery and a clutch handbag that is easily affordable by most of us.

We love Kate Middleton here at The House of Jewels as she has remained grounded with her style even though she is a Royal now. Cant wait to see what else she wears in the years to come.

Bridal jewellery has changed so much in recent times. The hair tiara has moved onto a hair band, and the neckline has gone from plain to crystalised.

Keeping up with the recent trends can be hard, and knowing what to jewellery to wear on your big day is even harder to know. But, one clear point to note, is wear what you feel most elegant and comfortable in, its your big day!

Many people write to us, with the good points and bad, but one thing is sure, that nothing is better suited to all brides then a beautiful piece of costume jewellery.
