Kate Middleton’s monogram necklace costs more than £1,000, but we found 7 lookalikes for much less
To be a royal, a philanthropist, a mom, and a fashion icon all at the same time sounds like a lot to handle, but somehow, Kate Middleton always pulls it off. We’ve been taking notes from the Duchess of Cambridge’s versatile stylebook pretty much daily, from her red embellished dress that would be perfect for Valentine’s Day to the practical yet fashionable weatherproof boot brand she’s been sporting for years—we want it all. And our most recent obsession from the royal’s closet is a piece that combines style and sentiment.
The Duchess wore a gold monogrammed necklace engraved with the letters “G,” “C,” and “L”—the initials of her three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. According to the Daily Mail, the Personalised Gold Midnight Moon Necklace by Daniella Draper rings up at £1,070. Okay, so it’s a combination of style, sentiment…and a royally large price tag.
While the royal’s exact necklace isn’t within our price range, we still love the look. We rounded up seven more affordable monogram necklaces so you too can rock the initials of your kids, your friends, your partner, or yourself, or your dog (why not?) in classic, royal style.
