Most recently, Kate was seen wearing Spells of Love's Medium Twist Hoops - a gorgeous set of handmade twist hoops retailing for £60. Hayley says: "All jewellery is responsibly handcrafted using small-batch production, and ethically sourced and traceable stones. I also offer a re-plating service, so that customers are able to have their pieces re-plated over time, ensuring customers can cherish their pieces and pieces are never simply disposed of/end up in landfill."

The Duchess caught royal fans off guard when she arrived at the Foundling Museum in a pair of £2.10 hoop earrings from Accessorize. Yes, really.
