Kate Middleton once again dazzled with her outfit and jewellery choices over the Diamond Jubilee weekend.

One of her most-admired looks was a nude lace dress by Alexander McQueen, which she teamed with pearl and diamond earrings.

Well, luckily for those of us who want to emulate her style, these diamond earrings were in fact ‘fakes’.

The Duchess of Cambridge spent just £48 on the dazzling drop earrings as they were good copies of the precious stones called ‘fabulous fakes’, reports the Daily Mail.

Designer Belinda Hadden revealed that the diamonds are actually made from finest grade cubic zirconia, which is then set stylishly in earrings.

Meanwhile, the pearls are created from ground-up freshwater pearls reconstituted with resin.

Kate has therefore proved that you don’t have to spend a fortune on your jewellery to look glamorous and stylish.

Hot Diamonds is just one of the affordable jewellery brands on the market, offering a wide range of earrings, necklaces and rings. Unlike Kate’s earrings though, all Hot Diamonds jewellery is set with real genuine diamonds so you can go one better!
