On February 27, 2019, Kate wore these earrings in Belfast.
From the website: “An extremely pretty pair of mini Green Amethyst smooth cut stones set in 18ct Yellow Gold with dazzling Diamonds. Stunning earrings to freshen up your collection.”
Much like the pendant, these earrings feature four white diamonds arranged just above a teardrop green amethyst gemstone. One diamond is placed just above three diamonds arranged in a triangle. All 5 stones are set in yellow gold. These are attached to a postback.
I recently purchased the Monica Vinader Siren Wire Earrings.
They arrived in a square cardboard box.
The box opens up to reveal some cards offering a lifetime guarantee.
Beneath this is the beautiful plum colored jewelry box.
It flips open to reveal a soft pouch. The earrings are inside.
Here are the lovely, small earrings.
They are somewhat smaller than I expected, but not tiny. They have a good weight to them and aren’t too swingy or heavy.
I did experience some pain when inserting them. The hook is on the thicker side, and it hurt briefly when I pushed it into my piercing. Once it got past the hook and was centered on my earlobe, the pain was gone and I felt like. Presumably, I imagine this was designed to keep the earring from sliding out without the presence of a rubber back or leverback.
These cost $175, but with some discounts I paid $140 for them.
On February 27, 2019, Kate introduced a new piece of Kiki McDonough jewelry into her collection.
From the website: “Extremely pretty mini Green Amethyst smooth cut teardrop pendant set in 18ct yellow gold with dazzling Diamonds. A stunning pendant to freshen up your jewelry collection.”
A simple piece of one teardrop prasiolite gemstone suspended below three white diamonds set in a yellow gold setting. The bale is also encrusted with white diamonds, and the entire necklace is finished off with a thin yellow gold chain.
On January 20, 2020, Kate debuted a second pair of Soru earrings for a Buckingham Palace reception.
From the website: “Handcrafted from 18kt yellow gold vermeil plated onto sterling silver, genuine ruby gemstones are set within multi facted sparkling crystals.”
In the style of Soru pieces, these earrings are prominent and conspicuous. Ruby stones have a tear drop shape and are framed by eye catching gold beads and crystals. A gold and crystal post suspends the pendant, and attaches to the earlobe by a post back.
