Judge the Jewels: Kate Middleton’s Affordable Earrings by Indie Designer Chalk




The sighting: The Princess of Wales recently attended a London event to celebrate the launch of a new charitable campaign. She wore a chic red suit for the occasion and accessorized it with a pair of statement earrings.

The jewels: Adorning the royal earlobes for this event are the Florence earrings by CHALK, a woman-owned independent jewelry brand based in London.

CHALK’s Florence earrings are made from walnut wood and acrylic with gold-filled ear wires and are part of the designer’s collaboration with the Royal Opera House, which features designs inspired by the regal building’s architecture. The Florence style retails on the designer’s website for £75.

The earrings are a personal collection piece that the royal first debuted in 2022, according to the Kate Middleton Style Blog.

The trends: We’ve seen a lot of high-profile celebs opting for statement earrings as their only red carpet jewel lately. The shift from multi-earring ear parties to fewer, bigger earrings is truly underway.

What do we think? I love this, both in general and for the Princess of Wales specifically. Her jewelry usually isn’t very imaginative, but it always meshes well with her own personal style. These earrings are daring shape for her, but their neutral color palette helps them retain the classic subtlety that always pervades this royal’s wardrobe.

On a personal note, I’ve been a fan of this edgy little brand for years and it thrills me to see CHALK getting this kind of exposure.

Judgement: 16/10 for gorgeous indie earrings worn in front of the world.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
