Kate Middleton owns a rectangular diamond set brooch in the Art Deco style.
The Princess first debuted the stunning piece of jewellery at the National Service of Remembrance 2022. She used the brooch to pin three red poppies to her coat.
About the brooch:
An Art Deco diamond set brooch, of rectangular shape with corners cut away, with an openwork pattern comprising of a central, round brilliant-cut diamond with an estimated weight of 0.35 carat, with a baguette-cut diamond to the top and bottom of the rectangle, total estimated diamond weight 4.5 carats, all mounted in platinum, circa 1920, measuring approximately 4.4×2.2cm, gross weight 11.4 grams.
A sparkling Art Deco brooch. This brooch is of a classically Art Deco design, with geometric shapes and fine openwork platinum set throughout with lively diamonds. This beautiful piece was made in around 1920 and captures the glamour and elegance of the Jazz Age. It would look dazzling pinned to a silk scarf or the lapel of a jacket.Bentley & Skinner

Did Charles buy the brooch for Kate?
It’s pure speculation, but yes, it’s possible. The sparkling diamond brooch could have been a 40th birthday gift to the Princess of Wales from her father-in-law. He’s purchased items from the shop for wife Camilla and daughter-in-law Meghan previously, and he has awarded the company with a Royal Warrant.
