At the Sun Military Awards in December 2011, the Duchess of Cambridge stepped out in a new suite of diamond and ruby jewels. The set includes a necklace and a coordinating bracelet.

The demi-parure was made by Mouawad, a Lebanese jewelry firm with headquarters in Geneva and Dubai. The pieces were reportedly one of Kate's wedding gifts, though we don't know the identity of the giver.

The necklace is a modern fringe, with diamond circles that radiate out to diamond and ruby floral elements.

Kate wore her diamond cluster and baguette earrings with the Mouawad suite; these earrings belong to a different set of jewelry, and they have their own coordinating diamond bracelet.

So far, the awards ceremony is the only time we've seen Kate don this set in public.
