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.
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 9, 2018, Kate debuted these pearl cluster earrings at Prince Louis’s christening ceremony.
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.
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.
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.
It was through the generosity of a fellow replikater that I was able to buy this necklace. She sold it to me and made sure to reserve it just for me.
This is the necklace Kate designed for Claudia Bradby when she was working for Jigsaw.
The necklace consists of a 16 inch sterling silver chain with movable pendants: a nugget of rose quartz, a sterling silver bean, and a pink freshwater pearl.
The necklace is light, delicate and surprisingly versatile for such pink pieces. I believed at first that it would look too feminine in tone contrasted with richer hues. It is a cool toned piece but it works against warmer colors, and it’s very wearable as a daily accessory.
Another design aspect I think was made with great foresight and care is the fact that this piece is devoid of prosaic feminine symbols such as butterflies, flowers or hearts. It’s a great way to be inclusive of the diversity among young girls and their personal taste in accessories. I can see a lot of young girls gravitating to this piece because it’s neutral and simple.
Unfortunately Claudia Bradby no longer stocks this, but keep an eye on replikate circles and eBay for a chance to buy it.
