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.

Here they are on Kate.

They cost $152 USD.

Collingwood Diamond And Pearl Dangle Earrings

On July 12, 2017, Kate wore these earrings to the State Banquet held in honor of King Felipe and Queen Letizia’s visit to the UK.

If the earrings look familiar, it’s because they aren’t new. They belonged to Princess Diana. Collingwood Jewellers gifted them to her once she became Princess of Wales.

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.

Baltic Milky Amber Filigree Earrings

On July 18, 2017, the second day of the Poland/Germany tour found Kate wearing these new earrings.

They are made of Baltic milky amber, found commonly in Poland.

From what I have seen in photos, these look to be cast in yellow gold, the settings shaped into a filigree design. It attaches to the earlobe with a leverback clasp.

I’ll have to find better closeups. When I do I’ll update the post.

Here they are on Kate.

Ruby and Diamond Earrings

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.

Kiki McDonough Morganite Double Drop Earrings

On May 20, 2017, Kate wore these special edition earrings to her sister’s wedding.

Being that they are special edition, they are not currently available on the website.

They are composed of cushion cut morganite stones rotated 45 degrees and set in a halo of small white diamonds. The post is set in gold. Below this is a bezel diamond suspended above the large oval drop, similar to the posts’ design (morganite surrounded by tiny white diamonds.

Here they are on Kate:

I estimate these cost more than $5,000. Many similar Kiki styles run up to that price.
