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.
We can see that the prongs are set in yellow gold, but the band itself is made of a different metal, possibly white gold but I am not sure.
The stone is most likely ruby, but other possibilities exist.
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.
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.
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.”
