3. At the wedding of Lady Charlotte Wellesley (daughter of the Duke of Wellington) on Saturday, the Duchess of Cornwall piled on major (if strangely matched) jewelry: her pearl necklace with the large diamond clasp, her diamond Magic Alhambra earrings by Van Cleef and Arpels, her enormous diamond engagement ring, and a large gold bracelet. (Unfortunately, the bride wore no jewels at all. Boo!)


2. The usually-minimalistic Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway stunned with her jewels at the Swedish christening, where she served as one of the baby's godparents. With her sparkling headband, she wore her convertible pendant earrings, a diamond bracelet, and her gorgeous aquamarine brooch. (See more views of her jewels, including the bracelet, over here!)
