in2Design Baroque Pearl Earrings

On January 31, 2018, Kate wore these natural pearl and gold earrings in Sweden.

These are natural, baroque pearls. They have that irregular, imperfect shape. Because natural pearls are unrefined, each one is unique and holds a different shape. They are drop pearls, dangling from a fish hook. These are set in yellow gold.

Here they are on Kate.

They cost $152 USD.

Emerald and Diamond Statement Necklace

On February 18, 2018, we received confirmation that Kate’s statement emerald pendant earrings and bracelet are a part of a suite of jewels.

She wore this opulent necklace to the BAFTAs.

The necklace is made of white diamonds, yellow diamonds, and four prominent emerald stones, arranged in an almost circle at the center of the necklace  and as a pendulum drop below the center. I suspect this piece is set in either platinum or white gold.

From the website: “Cavolfiore studs in 18ct yellow gold set with seven pearls set with diamonds. Inspired by the clusters of young flower stalks of the cauliflower (cavolfiore) in the market. From the Journey to Sicily.

Each earring measures approximately 20mm.”

The earrings feature small round white pearls arrange in a “burst” pattern: one pearl in the center surrounded by six additional pearls to form a flower-like design. The earrings are set in yellow gold.

Here they are on Kate:

These cost £4,360 or $5,514 USD.

Shopping With Kate: Kate Spade Pretty Poms Earrings in Sumac

I didn’t realize until recently that there is a smaller version of the Pretty Pom  earrings. They are much lighter and lack the long tassels of the bigger version.

I found a pair on Poshmark and purchased them.

Here is the original version, worn by Kate. You can see it lacks the longer tassel in the center.

As you can see, they look more prominent on her because she’s wearing the larger version.

Here they are on me:

 

 

Shopping With Kate: Links of London Effervescence Bubble Stiletto Earrings

A good friend of mine sold me her Links of London Effervescence Bubble Stiletto earrings, at a reasonable price.

The earrings arrived neatly wrapped in the same packaging she bought them in, with a pretty ribbon encircling the box.

The earrings are lightweight, not that long and feel very comfortable on the ear. The only trouble is, the tiny silver bar at the post doesn’t dangle as much if your piercing is higher up on your lobe. This is something to keep in mind.

I find these to be very pretty and serviceable for both formal occasions and casual events. I can see myself getting much use out of these.

I paid $150 for mine. The retail on these is $225 USD.

Shopping with Kate: Shelley Silversmith Large Bronze Modern Ulu Earrings

I purchased these earrings, which were worn during the 2016 Canadian tour, when they went on sale.

Despite the demand for this specific design, they didn’t take that long to reach me in NYC. Shelley makes all her pieces herself, so turnaround can take a while. It took only 10 days once I purchased them.

They arrived well packaged and unharmed.

 

The embossed design on the box is a wonderfully fine and beautiful touch on the packaging and presentation.

The earrings are nestled on a pad of cotton, hooked onto a card.
