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 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.
On July 20, 2017, Kate brought out another pair of Oscar de la Renta earrings.
From the website: “Make a subtle statement in our wear-with-everything button earrings. Crafted with striking gold-plated sun stars, this darling pair is set with lustrous Japanese resin pearls. They’re the perfect pairing to everything from classic knits to trendy dresses.”
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.
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.
