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.
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.
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.”

The royal line of succession – who outranks who?
The line of succession to the British throne dictates the order in which each member of the Royal Family would ascend to the throne.
It is also seen as a ranking of importance with the head of the line, the Queen, taking the place of ruler.
Older children come before younger children. Traditionally boys came before girls, but this law was changed on 26 March 2015 before the birth of Prince William’s first child.
Incredibly, Catholics are still excluded from the line of succession, as are children born outside of wedlock.
The royals, who usually stick to a strict protocol when appearing in public, often arrive at events in ascending order of importance, with the most important royal arriving last.
Prince Charles, 71, is currently second-in-line to the British throne, followed by Prince William, 38, his oldest son.
Then comes Prince William’s children, George, seven, Charlotte, five, and Louis, two, and they are followed by Prince Harry, 35. Prince Harry is succeeded by his son Archie Harrison, born in May 2019.
