Sophie Wessex has £3m jewellery collection with personal nod to family: ‘Extraordinary’
Like many royals, Sophie, Countess of Wessex is a fan of accessories. She will usually dress up her looks with stylish and timeless pieces of jewellery.
Included in this is a subtle piece which gives a nod to her family.
The 56-year-old has regularly worn a personalised necklace which features encrusted letters.
These are of the initials of her husband and two children, Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn.
Speaking to Express.co.uk, founder of Prestige Pawnbrokers of Channel 4’s Posh Pawn James Constantinou analysed the jewel.
He said: “Sophie, Countess of Wessex – married to Edward, Earl of Wessex – is a member of the Royal Family with a jewellery collection reportedly worth more than £3million.
“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.
“An ‘E’ for her husband, ‘L’ for her daughter Lady Louise Windsor and a ‘J’ for her son, James, Viscount Severn.”
Sophie has worn the necklace two ways, both with a shell charm attached and without.
When she has worn it for many engagements and has always left on the initial charms.
The mother-of-two is not the only royal to have favoured personalised jewellery.
Both Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have previously sported accessories with the initials of their children.
It’s unlikely Sophie would ever part from her necklace, but it could be worth a huge sum of money if sold.
“This necklace on a chain has been worn many times before, once with a shell clam which she has since removed,” James 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.
“But 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.”
