When it comes to Kate Middleton's jewelry collection, it can be hard to focus on anything other than her iconic sapphire-and-diamond engagement ring, which once belonged to her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana.

However, much like her $75 Superga sneakers and the & Other Stories jeans she is routinely photographed in, the Duchess of Cambridge has a sweet spot for surprisingly affordable jewelry.

One moderately priced brand the 40-year-old comes back to time and time again is Monica Vinader (shop here in Canada, here in the U.S.). Kate has been a fan of the ethical jewelry brand for years, wearing Monica Vinader during royal visits to France, the U.K. and Canada.

As luck would have it, a handful of Monica Vinader pieces are included in the 2022 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (shop here in Canada, here in the U.S.). From the brand's luxurious diamond earrings and rings to its moderately-priced metal accessories, Nordstrom shoppers can save hundreds on the Kate Middleton-approved brand between now and July 31, when the Nordstrom sale draws to a close.

The details

These dainty Monica Vinader huggie hoops are anchored with bezel-set diamond charms for instant (and affordable) luxury.

The earrings feature a total diamond weight of 0.05 carats and are crafted from recycled sterling silver with 18-carat gold plating. The royal-approved style meets Nordstrom's Sustainably Sourced Materials criteria, containing at least 50 per cent sustainably sourced materials.

What people are saying

While the earrings have only collected a handful of reviews from Nordstrom shoppers, Monica Vinader fans call them "understated, classy and funky all at once."

"Love these earrings," writes one shopper. "They are small but make a good statement."

The huggie hoops are "pretty" and "sparkly," echos another.

While shoppers note the earrings have a "good sparkle," reviewers mention they are "teeny tiny" in person, something to take into consideration when placing your order.

The verdict

If you're looking to treat yourself to a little bit of duchess-approved luxury, there's no better time than the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale to do so — just keep in mind that some reviewers say the brand's Diamond Essential Huggie Earrings are smaller than they expected.
