Here's our previous article about Vinader's interview and the reported loan. So, the question is this: does Kate own these pieces? My guess -- yes, she does. I think it's possible that the company sent the jewels as a loan to Kate and her styling team, she liked them, and she decided to purchase them (or someone purchased them for her). That's all speculation, of course. But I also think it's unlikely that she'd borrow the same pieces twice, so I feel fairly confident that she does own them now.
Do you think Kate was making a statement by wearing the Riva jewels, or was this an enormous coincidence?
