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.
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.
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.
On July 12, 2017, Kate wore to the state banquet for King Felipe a stunning statement necklace that has a long and fascinating history.
The Hon. Mrs. Ronald Greville purchased this necklace from Boucheron in 1907. When she died, she left her magnificent and vast jewelry collection to the royal family. This necklace was one of the items sent to them.
Upon Queen Elizabeth II’s marriage to Prince Phillip (at the time, she was Princess Elizabeth) her parents gave her this necklace as a wedding gift.
The Queen wore this necklace up until the 1980s, and in the following years it would lay in the vault until Kate brought it back into the public’s eye.
The necklace is of course, a statement piece. Numerous white diamonds are set into the frame to create floral clusters. Interpersed among the diamonds are ruby stones.
Two “spines” of diamond rows line the exterior and interior of the necklace to frame the floral clusters and create an established structure to guide the design. A large diamond pendant drop is affixed to the base of the entire piece.
We can see that the prongs are set in yellow gold, but the band itself is made of a different metal, possibly white gold but I am not sure.
The stone is most likely ruby, but other possibilities exist.
