If Kate Middleton thinks she can wear a new piece of jewelry without it going noticed, she's sorely mistaken. On Saturday at the royal wedding, the Duchess wore a gorgeous ring and immediately people assumed the rock was a push present from Prince William. The ring, which is amber-hued (and massive!), is a citrine stone said to represent new life, so it would make sense. But those who know Kate -- or, more apropos, Kate's closet -- aren't buying it. 

  • Here you can see the ring on Kate's right hand as she holds onto Princess Charlotte. 

    Needless to say, it's large and would make for one hell of a push present.

  • But! The Facebook page for 'What Kate Wore' noticed that the ring is actually an oldie but goodie.


    In fact, Kate's ring is really old. 

  • Kate was first spotted out with the ring in 2008 during a celebration for her 26th birthday.

    Three years before she and William even tied the knot!

  • Here's a close-up of the ring:

    It's definitely the one she wore to Harry and Meghan's wedding. Clearly, the woman has good taste.

  • Here's Kate wearing the ring again in 2008 to the wedding of Lady Rose Windsor and George Gilman.

  • Perhaps Prince William did get Kate Middleton a push present after she gave birth to Prince Louis.

    But sorry, pseudo-detectives, the ring isn't it. 

  • You've been had.
