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 July 19, 2017, Kate wore these red crystal bead earrings to a party in Germany.
From the website: “Simone Rocha’s red beaded drop earrings are a fresh, elegant way to wear colour. This Italian-made pair echoes prints seen in the AW17 runway collection and features tiers of faceted flowers that decrease in size as they fall from the lobe. Fasten them at the gold-tone metal post backs, styling them as a graceful complement to this season’s off-the-shoulder necklines.”
Tiny clusters of red beaded flowers climb down and form the length of the earring. A distinct red beaded flowers is centered as the post, attaching the earring to the earlobe.
Displaying the white and red colors of the Polish flag in her ensemble, Kate stepped off the plane and into the first stop on the 2017 Poland/Germany tour wearing these ruby and diamond earrings.
I noticed the center stone is set in yellow gold. This is not a common feature of G Collins and Sons work, so I don’t believe these are their earrings.
An oval ruby stone is set in a yellow gold setting. It looks like the whole earring is set in yellow gold. Surrounding the ruby are small white diamonds. A yellow gold attachment connects the diamond post to the drop component.
There is some uncertainty about whether these are ruby stones are not. The color does not look like the usual shade of garnet to me, and given Kate’s history of wearing rubies, and the hue of this piece, I am inclined to say these are rubies.
