At the BAFTA’s, Kate Middleton dazzled in set of jewellery from Van Cleef & Arpels. Pieces from the Magic Alhambra collection perfectly complimented her Alexander McQueen dress, and reconfirmed this jewellery line a firm favourite among the royals.

Magic Alhambra line was first introduced by the Maison in 2006, but the original Alhambra collection dates back back in 1968 and was worn by Princess Grace of Monaco. Most recently Princess Charlene of Monaco was spotted in the pieces from the famed line.
