Robinson Pelham Jewellers is celebrating the Royal Wedding more than most, having designed and made the diamonds earrings worn on the day by both Catherine and Philippa Middleton.

Robinson Pelham was created just 15 years ago by Kate Pelham Burn, Vanessa Chilton and Zoe Benyon to make British-made, privately commissioned pieces as well as seasonal collections.

Catherine’s earrings are diamond-set stylised oak leaves with a pear shaped diamond set drop and a pavé set diamond acorn suspended in the centre.

Inspiration for the design comes from the family’s new coat of arms which includes acorns and oak leaves and the earrings were made to echo a tiara lent to Catherine by the Queen.

The set designed for Philippa Middleton are more floral in nature to compliment her headpiece worn during the wedding ceremony.

A tourmaline and diamond pendant and matching earrings have been designed and made for the Mother of the bride, Carole Middleton. Two gold stick pins, one with a single gold acorn at the head and the other with an oak leaf, are also worn by the Father of the bride, Michael Middleton, and the bride’s brother, James Middleton.
