The Duchess of Cambridge wore Vanleles Honeycomb Bee Hoop Earrings in May 2022 when she visited Manchester. The Earrings feature sapphire and diamond. The bee is the symbol of Manchester and this city of industry is rightly proud of its link with the hard-working insect. In 1842, the early city fathers had to decide on a coat of arms that would tell the world who we were. It was a Victorian branding exercise. They included a globe with seven bees to show how we worked and traded across the seven seas. The Manchester bee was born in the industry. The symbol has remained a symbol of strength following the Manchester Arena attack in May 2017.
