One of the simplest yet most sentimental pieces of jewelry in the Duchess of Cambridge's collection is a gold link bracelet with a single disc charm. The piece is thought to have been a gift to Kate from her stepmother-in-law, the Duchess of Cornwall.

One side of the disc charm is engraved with Kate's official cypher: the letter C surmounted by a ducal coronet.

The other side of the disc features Camilla's official cypher: the letter C surrounded by a ring and surmounted by the coronet of the heir apparent.

Kate wore the bracelet for the first time in public at Victoria Barracks in June 2011, only a few months after her wedding.

She also took the bracelet along with her on the 2011 tour of North America; she wore it at a polo match in Santa Barbara, California.
