From the website: “Nothing could possibly make pearls more perfect….than crystals. Our designers combined two of our favorite things to create a pair of earrings that are as elegant as they are easy.”

These are made of brass, glass and plastic pearls. They are coated with light gold ox plating.

They consist of three pearls (one large and two small) arrange in an imprecise triangular shape, set among round and pear shaped glass crystals. The earrings are affixed to postbacks.

Here they are on Kate:

They’re quite large and somewhat casual (in design) for Kate, especially given that she’s taken to wearing more royal jewels in recent years. The earrings consist of a large teardrop pendant made of 14ct white gold and set with a single, uniform row of white diamonds. They are affixed to white gold leverbacks, the front facing sides lined with white diamonds.

Here they are on Kate:


They cost £4,900 or $6,545 USD.

Queen Alexandra’s Wedding Necklace

On October 23, 2018, Kate debuted a historic piece for a state dinner at Buckingham Palace.

In 1862, Garrard received a commission from Queen Victoria’s son Edward, then Prince of Wales, for a wedding parure. It was a gift for his bride Alexandra.

It is a very elaborate and ostentatious piece, featuring 8 mabe pearls, three teardrop pearls, and ropes of white diamonds, some forming small half loops in the center.

Kate is not known for donning statement necklaces often, so it was a delightful surprise to see her wear this.
