History, as they say, is alive and well and living in London.
 
I adore royalty. Maybe it was the experience of being a little girl and watching Princess Diana walk down the aisle in her fairy tale wedding dress or perhaps it's just wanting to buy in to the air of mystery around certain individuals who are standing in for some of our most cherished ideals: love, loyalty, and leadership.

Sometimes these human beings fall short of our ideals, and we learn they are fragile, flawed, and vulnerable just like us, but I suppose that's what I like best. Such as reading historical fiction about Queen Elizabeth I and having the chance to wonder just how much decision-making, war, and politics may have ate away at her heart and personal relationships.

It's a new age and generation of royalty in the United Kingdom, and along with it comes Kate Middleton or Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. She definitely breathes a sort of fresh and grounded beauty into the royal family, which I think is captured in this amazing teal evening dress designed by Jenny Packham.

It's elegant, timeless, and the lace bodice adds a sort of Victorian era feel to the whole look. Here I've designed a one of kind necklace I call The Duchess that combines elements of Kate Middleton's evening attire and the delicacy of the Victorian style with sparkling crystals and tiny pearls. You can purchase The Duchess by clicking here to visit Hint Jewelry.

The Duchess can be worn alone or you may choose to purchase a charm to be added to the necklace. Unfortunately, the crystals wire-wrapped into the chain don't allow for a charm to be slipped on and off. To see more of The Duchess necklace and shop for charms at Hint Jewelry click here.
