The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took to Zoom yesterday to chat with nursing students in the UK, telling them they were “needed more than ever”.
During her appearance, Kate Middleton sported a new necklace, well one that we had never seen before. It is signed Astley Clarke and features a Lapis Lazuli pendant on a gold chain. You can purchase the exact one below.
Deep Blue Stone is said to protect against anxiety and deep stress, and offer the wearer harmony and inner peace.
In fact, Kate seems to have an affinity with crystals, having worn them in her jewelry for several years. Just this week, the Duchess wore a pair of Missoma earrings, in rhodochrosite, to speak to a group of teachers for Children’s Mental Health Week.
It was all the more poignant as the rhodochrosite stone, which takes on a slightly pink hue, is believed to promote positive thoughts and self-esteem and banish depression and anxiety.
And of course, let’s not forget one of the Duchess’s favorite pairs of earrings (main photo), which she’s worn numerous times over the years: the Monica Vinader mermaid earrings in onyx green, which are to this day a bestseller for the brand.
In crystal meanings, green onyx brings purity and rest to the wearer, banishing all worries and fears.
Sure, Kate Middleton could wear the stones just because they are beautiful, rather than for their meaning, but a little positivity can’t hurt anyway.
