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.

Queen Alexandra’s Wedding Necklace

On October 23, 2018, Kate debuted a historic piece for a state dinner at Buckingham Palace.

In 1862, Garrard received a commission from Queen Victoria’s son Edward, then Prince of Wales, for a wedding parure. It was a gift for his bride Alexandra.

It is a very elaborate and ostentatious piece, featuring 8 mabe pearls, three teardrop pearls, and ropes of white diamonds, some forming small half loops in the center.

Kate is not known for donning statement necklaces often, so it was a delightful surprise to see her wear this.

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.

Nigel Milne Three Strand Pearl and Diamond Bracelet

On July 20, 2017, Kate attended a reception in Berlin, Germany. She wore this bracelet that once belonged to Diana.

At first, some of us bloggers believed this was Kate’s years old bracelet. But close inspection revealed spacers on this one that her own bracelet lacks.

Diana famously wore this bracelet with her “Elvis” gown”.

The full story behind it can be found here.

The bracelet is made of three strands of white pearls, and at least six diamond halo spacers. From what is visible in the photo there are at least two rows of diamond spacers on the bracelet, three spacers on each row.

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.
