Kate Middleton Wears Chalk Earrings On Windrush Day

Kate Middleton wearing Florence Earrings

We were very excited to see Kate Middleton stepping out in a pair of Florence Earrings by Chalk Jewellery on Windrush Day this week. Kate and Prince William unveiled a special memorial in London, and the Duchess of Cambridge made sure to include a thoughtful detail in her wardrobe for the event with earrings designed by Malaika Carr of Chalk.⁠

Windrush Day marks the arrival of Afro-Caribbean migrants to the UK aboard the Empire Windrush ship in 1948, and continues to honor the continued contributions of immigrants to the Britain. It was absolutely fitting to see her wearing statement jewellery from a London-based, black woman-owned business. Malaika’s own grandparents and father being Windrush generation.

Malaika is also an architect and hand-makes each piece; the Revival Collection featuring The Florence Earrings is based on the design of London’s Royal Opera House, which also has a connection to post-World War II Britain. Following the war, the theatre reopened in 1946 and became England’s first permanent home for opera and ballet.⁠

⁠Congratulations Malaika!
