Catherine, Princess of Wales has her pick of the most beautiful and priceless jewels in the world, which have been part of the Crown Jewels for centuries. But that doesn't stop her from championing affordable homegrown jewellery brands whenever she gets the chance.
Case in point: her love of Monica Vinader. She has worn the female sustainable jewellery designer's designs for the past few years, and often rewears her favourite pieces, such as the Siren earrings in Green Onyx.
She was spotted wearing Nura Baroque pearl pendant charm on a gold chain to visit the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists headquarters, which she teamed with matching earrings.
If you want to emulate the Princess' style, you'll be pleased to hear that her pieces, as well as dozens of others, are currently reduced by up to 50% in the Monica Vinader Cyber Monday sale, which is still going strong as one of the best Black Friday deals. Here are my top picks for today, including Kate's earrings and necklace.

Penny Goldstone is the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire, covering everything from catwalk trends to royal fashion and the latest high street and Instagram must-haves.
Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).
Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.
However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.
Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
