The Duchess of Cambridge has an incredible jewellery collection, like the rest of the royal ladies. There are a number of pieces in her vault that hold particularly special meaning, however, including a selection of items that have been gifted to her by other members of the royal family.

One such sentimental piece is a gold charm bracelet that was given to her as a wedding gift in 2011 by the Duchess of Cornwall. We couldn't resist taking a walk down memory lane to take a closer look at it - it's really beautiful! We hope to see Kate wear it again one day...

While Camilla is thought to have presented Kate with the gold-link wrist candy as a wedding gift, she wasn't pictured wearing the new piece of jewellery until June 2011, two months after her royal nuptials.

The bracelet features a disc engraved with both of their monograms – on one side, a 'C' for Catherine and a coronet, and on the other, a 'C' for Camilla and a crown.

Kate wore the bracelet a number of times in 2011, including for an appearance at Wimbledon, but isn't thought to have worn it for another public engagement since her wedding year.

With its chunky gold chain and circular charm, we reckon the bracelet is a timeless classic that would just look just as on-trend today – don't you agree?

Of course, Kate has a number of very sentimental items of jewellery, most famously her iconic engagement ring that once belonged to Princess Diana.

She also wears a third wedding ring - that even the most eagle-eyed of royal-watchers might have missed - stacking a white gold diamond-studded piece on top of her sizeable sapphire and traditional Welsh gold wedding band.

The delicate eternity ring also has a sweet story behind it, since it's thought to be the generous gift that Prince William gave his wife following the birth of Prince George. Oh, to have a peek through Kate's jewellery box!
