Kate Middleton wowed us all at the recent Diamond Jubilee celebrations, but the Duchess of Cambridge kept her own diamonds to a minimum after she allegedly wore a pair of fake earrings to the service at St Paul's Cathedral earlier this week.
The 30-year-old was spotted wearing 'diamond and pearl' dangling earrings, but actually they cost just £48 designed by Belinda Hadden.
According to Belinda, a mother-of-three, who set up Heavenly Necklaces in the '90s, Kate was definitely wearing a pair of her earrings.
According to the MailOnline, she said: “I was at a wedding, so I had no idea Kate had worn my earrings until another client sent me an email asking: 'Are they the same as mine?'”
Kate's Duchess-effect has now touched Belinda, as she's sold more in the last few days than she would've in a year.
“Within the next 24 hours, I had sold out. I sold 60 on my website, which is the amount I would usually sell in a whole year,” she explained.
Belinda, reportedly sources her fake jewellery from China, India and Hatton Garden in London, said: “They are made of finest grade cubic zirconia, but what makes them look authentic is the settings they are in.”
“Usually, I would never dream of talking about my clients but, in this case, Kate’s earrings were outed on various blogs,” she said, after admitting that she was astonished to hear that Kate had worn her jewellery on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.
“I had no idea there was this huge internet chat about where, when and what she wears.”
Were you surprised to hear Kate's a faker? Will she snub the Crown Jewels?
