On January 31, 2018, Kate wore these earrings in Sweden.
They’re quite large and somewhat casual (in design) for Kate, especially given that she’s taken to wearing more royal jewels in recent years. The earrings consist of a large teardrop pendant made of 14ct white gold and set with a single, uniform row of white diamonds. They are affixed to white gold leverbacks, the front facing sides lined with white diamonds.
On March 18, 2017, Kate debuted these dainty earrings in Paris.
From the website: “Designed by Louis Cartier in 1924, the Trinity ring is a signature design of the Cartier Maison. The three interlaced bands in pink, yellow and white gold symbolize love, fidelity and friendship. The ring has inspired the full Trinity collection, a timeless testament to life’s most memorable loves.
Trinity de Cartier earrings, 18K white gold, 18K pink gold, 18K yellow gold, each set with 1 brilliant-cut diamond of 0.04 carat.”
Kate debuted these gold earrings at the Rugby World Cup.
“Made in 18ct gold plated silver, these divine fern earrings add a feminine touch to the traditional hoop earring. As seen on HRH The Duchess of Cambridge. Also available in silver. Width of fern hoop 22mm.”
The first half of the hoop is a standard thin line of gold and it blossoms out beautifully into a curved gold fern, completing the circle of gold. It is attached to a French hook.
Strictly speaking, these are not true hoops. Hoop earrings have a post which is attached directly to the hoop. They do not utilize a French wire/hook. However, Catherine Zoraida officially titled these earrings “hoop earrings” and many people would recognize these as hoop earrings.
Here they are on Kate:
It’s lovely to see these on Kate. They are a distant echo of what she wore before her marriage (she regularly wore hoop earrings during her mid 20s), and it’s great to see her in something modern and fun.
The cost of these earrings is £130, or about $200 USD.
Kate first wore these earrings to an event hosted by the Fostering Network in January 2015.
From the website: “Small Gold Plated loop earrings, 22 carat on Brass. 4cm long. The Hooks are sterling silver Gold Plated.”
Lolita is made of three gold plated brass hoops which increase slightly in size as they drop down to the next hoop. The hoops themselves are hammered flat. A hook is twisted at the base to clasp the first hoop.

These earrings are made of a large oval hoop strung with seven shimmery gold beads. The beads are graduated in size. They start out small and become enlarged as they lead to the center bead. Then the size reverses and the beads become smaller as they increase away from the center.
The hoop is attached to a French hook. It looks like this is gold plated, but I’m not too sure.
I found a similar looking pair on Amazon.com. They’re not an exact copy for Kate’s, though.
