According to Daily Mail Prince William and Kate’s closest friends have bought presents for Prince George from upmarket designer Patrick Mavros. The Duchess has been a big fan of Mavros’s sterling silver jewelry and is believed to own a few pieces including crocodile stud earrings and Zozo elephant pendant.
Patrick’s signature pieces are sterling silver ‘elephant hair’ bangles, ‘crocodile’ belt buckles, and unique cuff bangles. Together with his four sons, Patrick keeps expanding the business and designing one off special pieces such as Giraffe and Acacia Tree Candelabra, a set of Flying Grouse double magnum wine coasters and ‘elephant and tortoise’ cigar ashtrays.

The story of Patrick Mavros is truly inspirational. He was trained as a baker and served as a soldier during Rhodesian wars. He designed his first pair of earrings for his wife Catja over thirty years ago. The earrings were so admired by her friends that Patrick began making jewelry.
