Sarah Ferguson's hat had everyone talking about Princess Eugenie's royal wedding to Jack Brooksbank. Did it look like Harry Potter's golden snitch? Or maybe the Wonder Woman logo? One broadcast commentator even compared it to venetian blinds (yikes).

Who are your favorite newlyweds?

Eugenie and Jack!

Meghan and Harry!

But just forget about the hat for just one second, because while everybody was looking at the top of her head, the Duchess of York was rocking the best piece of mom jewelry ever on her wrist. This wasn't just the standard charm bracelet with her kids' initials or birthstones on it — the mother of the bride wore a bangle with both of her daughters' names written out in diamonds.

Her enthusiastic waving from the pew revealed a clear look at this super-sparkly bling:


And here it is again outside on the chapel steps:


What do you think of Fergie's bracelet?

I want one with my own name on it!

Eh, it's too flashy for me.

FYI: Her mom Susan Barrantes carried that same nude Manolo Blahnik clutch to the Duke and Duchess of York's wedding back in 1986. The bracelet wasn't a new piece Fergie had commissioned for the ceremony, mind you. The Duchess has owned and sported the bracelet proudly on many occasions for more than a decade. Here she is wearing it all the way back in 2004 at the Queen's Cup polo match:


And here's a glimpse at the other side with Beatrice's name as seen at a book signing in 2012:


But seriously, look at how many diamonds this thing has:


Princess Beatrice had some meaningful jewelry on last Friday too. Her bee-shaped brooch probably alluded to her nickname, Bea, and then there's the bride of course. Princess Eugenie surprised everyone by wearing the gorgeous Greville Emerald Kokoshnik Tiara, which she borrowed from the Queen, instead opting for the York family's own diadem.


The new Mrs. Brooksbank tapped her granny yet again for the reception, when she wore Queen Victoria’s Wheat-Ear Brooches not on her Zac Posen dress but in her hair. Kudos to these York girls for coming up with some very inventive ways to wear serious bling.
