Sophie, Countess of Wessex has £250k necklace with an adorable nod to her children

Sophie, Countess of Wessex has worn many pieces of jewellery since she married Prince Edward. As well as wearing lavish items from the royal collection, a style expert explained she has a subtle necklace with a personal meaning.

Like many royal brides, Sophie first dived into the royal collection on her wedding day.

On June 19, 1999 she walked down the aisle wearing the Anthemion tiara which was thought to be made from pieces of Queen Victoria’s Regal Circlet.

She accessorised the look with a matching black and white pearl necklace that was a gift from her husband.

Since they married, Sophie and Prince Edward have had two children together, Lady Louise Windsor, 16, and James, Viscount Severn, 12.

The family live in Bagshot Park, which is located not too far from the Queen’s residence at Windsor Castle.

Sophie could be showing that she is family-orientated by living so close to her mother-in-law.

The royal has also highlighted the importance of her family through her recent jewellery choices.

She has started to wear a long chain with a small yellow stone on the end.

There are also three diamond letters in the initials of her family, founder Prestige Pawnbrokers of Channel 4’s Posh Pawn James Constantinou said.

“Sophie, The Countess of Wessex married to Edward, Earl of Wessex is a member of the Royal Family with a jewellery collection reportedly worth over £3million,” he told Express.co.uk.

“The Countess has worn this necklace on many royal appointments.

“It has the charm of a vintage piece but not only that it has beautifully crafted initials added to hang next to the stone.

“There is an ‘E’ for her husband, ‘L’ for her daughter Lady Louise Windsor and a ‘J’ for her son, James Viscount Severn.

“This necklace on a chain has been worn many times before, once with a shell clam which she has since removed.”

Sophie has kept her family close to her by wearing the jewel on outings with her children and on solo engagements.

While the exact valuation of the necklace is not known, James explained it could be worth a small fortune.

He continued: “As with other extraordinary pieces from the royal household the quality is outstanding.

“Sometimes you just can’t always put a price on a personalised piece of jewellery, especially when details on the stone in terms of clarity and weight are not known.

“However, it would be fair to say that a piece such as this with its royal connection along with added historic value could be worth in excess of £250,000.”
