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.

I think the name for this is well chosen. The earrings do look like they could serve as pendants.

They are made of 9kt gold. The website calls them “Temple of Heaven girandole earrings with clip and post.”

The earrings are made of one small diamond shaped gold cut-out, three oval shaped gold cut-outs and three circle shaped cut-outs all attached in a chandelier style. The ovals and circles are attached to six tiny gold balls At the very top is the triangle, followed by two ovals equidistant from each other. Suspended halfway down these two ovals is the third oval. The pattern repeats with the three circles. The first two circles are suspended at the middle of the third oval, at either side of the oval. The third circle finishes off the design, its position at the center of the earring.
