On March 25, 2022, Kate chose these earrings made by a Bahamian designer to wear on the Caribbean tour.
From the website:
“Everyone loves a hoop! A summer staple but this one is easy and light enough to wear year round.
0.925 Sterling Silver or 14k Gold plated Sterling Silver.”
I found her backstory on the Gorgonian collection to be charming and darling.
“There’s a certain subset of Bahamians that vehemently agree that the official beach season is from Mother’s Day in May to the National Heroes Holiday in October. Otherwise, the ocean is categorically too cold. My mother is a card carrying member of this group. Making the visits only “in season” and often with a car full of her hard partying posse of now septuagenarians.
This collection was first started from a cast of a seafan she beachcombed one such day some years back and gifted to me. It is perhaps my favorite of the collections and is ever evolving.”
On February 8, 2023, Kate added another Accessorize earring pair to her collection.
From the website: “Texture, texture, texture. Can’t decide what earrings to wear? This pair is so full of detail that you’ll never have to choose again. Crafted in a twisted huggie hoop profile, these earrings feature both a molten coin and pearl charm that hangs off the hoop.”
A tiny pearl charm sits ahead of a dented golden coin. The coin is sizably larger than the pearl. They are both set on a partial hoop with a golden block at the rear, positioned to keep the charms from falling off easily. A single postback allows the earring to be worn on the earlobe.
June 2, 2022, Kate brought out jewelry that she inherited from Diana.
Of course, long time Diana fans will recognize these as her earrings.
I count 8 diamonds on the upper charm and 9 diamonds on the lower charm. Each charm is arranged to resemble a daisy flower design, with a cabochon sapphire in the center of each one. A single small diamond suspended between the two connect them as a dangling drop. These should be post back and I assume they are set in white gold.
The provenance of these earrings are currently unknown. Knowing the history of Diana’s jewelry suites, it is likely that these were gifted to her after her marriage. The choice of sapphires would be made with the knowledge that her engagement ring featured a prominent sapphire.
On January 19, 2023, Kate added another Daniella Draper piece to her collection.
From the website: “The Citrine Baby Treasure Necklace is made using 100% recycled solid 9ct yellow gold & set with a beautiful citrine. Wear alone or layer with other DD necklaces to create your own unique look!”
A simple, circular citrine stone is framed with yellow gold. A bail made of yellow gold sits atop the stone, and it is strung with a yellow gold chain.
On May 18, 2022, Kate wore these new diamond earrings to the Top Gun: Maverick premiere in London.
I count 7 points on each star, top and bottom. One star functions as the anchor which attaches to the earlobe. A rigid line, dotted with tightly arranged white diamonds, travel down to the second star, with the diamond line ending to form the center point of each star. The white diamonds increase in size from tiny to bigger as the line descends, creating a stunning sparkle effect. I assume it has an earring post on the back.
On December 2, 2021, Kate debuted these simple hoop earrings.
An unfinished hoop consisting of two gold borderlines curve to form an open circle. Glass stones are arranged parallel to the borderlines, creating a glittering effect in the center of the earring. These are created with a friction back and a butterfly back.
On March 24, 2022, Kate debuted these bright earrings in the Caribbean.
Gold-plated brass earrings with fine gold
Light patina for a vintage look
Weight of an earring : 9 gr / 0.3 oz / 0.019 lb
Height : 6 cm / 2.36 in
These earrings are suitable for pierced ears
A total of 11 stones are fixed onto each pendant. Two stones are round (one at the top of the hoop, and one dangling in the center of the hoop) and the rest are pear shaped. Each stone is set in gold plated brass and framed by golden rope of metal. Between each charm is two gold beads set a distance apart. An additional charm attached the pendant to the post (the final turquoise stone is a bit larger than the two round ones) and allows the pendant to swing.
On March 23, 2022, Kate brought out an old earring pair for a reception in Jamaica.
There are reports that the Queen wore these to a return dinner in 1989. It is suspected by many that Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan of the United Arab Emirates was the donor. This is not confirmed.
The earring consists of three ropes of white diamonds laid near near other in a vertical position. The upper portion wraps around the post (also featuring three rows of diamonds) to reveal a folded/bent appearance. As the name suggests, the overall effect renders a tassel-like pendant look.
