Erdem Blue Crystal and Pearl Embellished Floral Drop Earrings

On March 10, 2020, Kate wore these earrings to the Place2Be Reception.

From the website: “Erdem’s deeply romantic aesthetic is whimsically captured in these gold-tone brass floral-drop earrings. They’re made in Italy with blue crystal-embellished floral studs and are shaped with crystal tipped curved arms-designed to resemble stems- and finished with a white faux pearl in the center.”

A distinctly creative set in Kate’s jewelry collection, these earrings stand out with their splayed attachments and mix of blue, white and good hues.

Here they are on Kate:

These cost £310 or $388 USD.

From the website: “Nothing could possibly make pearls more perfect….than crystals. Our designers combined two of our favorite things to create a pair of earrings that are as elegant as they are easy.”

These are made of brass, glass and plastic pearls. They are coated with light gold ox plating.

They consist of three pearls (one large and two small) arrange in an imprecise triangular shape, set among round and pear shaped glass crystals. The earrings are affixed to postbacks.

in2Design Baroque Pearl Earrings

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.

Here they are on Kate.

They cost $152 USD.

Cassandra Goad Cavolfiore Pearl Studs

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.

Here they are on Kate:

These cost £4,360 or $5,514 USD.

These earrings are made of pewter, resin pearls, brass and steel.

They feature a center pearl surrounded by yellow gold plated spikes and small spokes, encircling the center pearl and created a sunray effect.

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.

Bahrain Pearl and Diamond Earrings

On November 13, 2016, Kate brought out a pair of earrings that have been worn in public before, but just not by her.

At the Rememberance Day 2016 event, she accessorised with Queen Elizabeth’s Bahrain earrings.

They are named such because the single pearls which grace the very ends of the pendant components are from a wedding gift bestowed upon Princess Elizabeth from the then ruler of Bahrain. It was a shell containing seven pearls. Two of the seven were used to make these earrings.

Each earring is set with eight white diamonds: a larger round stud acting as the earring’s post, one small round stud just under it, three baguettes arranged with the longer diamond in the center, flanked by two shorter baguettes, three small white diamonds shaped as a triad, and finally the gifted pearls finish off the unit.

Here they are on Kate.

Replikate for the Double Drop Pearl Earrings

When I first saw the double drop earrings on Kate, they didn’t catch my attention immediately. In time, they became more appealing to me and when I found an eBay seller who offers a great replikate, I bought a pair from them.

These are Kate’s earrings:

These are my earrings. They arrived in a small box, enclosed in an organza bag.

The earrings are made of sterling silver and freshwater pearls. The luster on the pearls is exquisitely beautiful.

The main difference is that hers are yellow gold and mine are silver.

I really like them. For now I am fine with them being silver because it’s not noticeable from a distance and it’s a minor detail.

I bought these from goldbank on eBay. I paid $33.48. At the time of writing, there are two pairs of earrings available for purchase. If you are not able to obtain a pair for yourself, look into hiring an Etsy or local jeweler to make a custom pair for you. These have a fairly simple design and should not be difficult to replikate.

Pearl Drop and Diamond Stud Earrings

Kate first wore these earrings on the Royal Tour of Canada this year. She wore them again on her first solo overseas trip to The Netherlands.

These earrings are not unfamiliar to some of us. Anna of My Small Obsessions notes that both Queen Elizabeth II and Sophie, Countess of Wessex have worn them. Anna believes this pair belongs to the Queen and she loans them to other Royal women.

Update: The Telegraph has stated these were loaned to Kate by the Queen.

They are quite simple: a diamond stud on the earlobe and an egg shaped pear drop attached as a dangle. I have seen video of Kate wearing these earrings. The pearl moves freely so I can confirm that they are not stationary.
