I think the name for this is well chosen. The earrings do look like they could serve as pendants.

They are made of 9kt gold. The website calls them “Temple of Heaven girandole earrings with clip and post.”

The earrings are made of one small diamond shaped gold cut-out, three oval shaped gold cut-outs and three circle shaped cut-outs all attached in a chandelier style. The ovals and circles are attached to six tiny gold balls At the very top is the triangle, followed by two ovals equidistant from each other. Suspended halfway down these two ovals is the third oval. The pattern repeats with the three circles. The first two circles are suspended at the middle of the third oval, at either side of the oval. The third circle finishes off the design, its position at the center of the earring.

Elsa Peretti Diamonds by the Yard Bracelet by Tiffany

Kate sometimes relies on minimal pieces to bring her look together. This bracelet is one of them.

From the website: “Tiffany round diamonds catch the light and make it dance. Bracelet in sterling silver with three round brilliant diamonds. 7″ long. Carat total weight .09. Original designs copyrighted by Elsa Peretti.”

This bracelet is a tri-diamond station bracelet with a sterling silver chain. The diamonds are set in sterling silver. It closes with a spring ring clasp.

Kate wore this bracelet on Canada Day in 2011. She also wore her Asprey button pendant necklace and her Kiki McDonough Grace White Topaz and Diamond Earrings.

I especially like this piece because it’s very versatile and can be worn with nearly any outfit, but it’s also tasteful and classic. You can’t go wrong with a simple diamond station bracelet.

It retails for $700 on the Tiffany’s website. 

Winged Dangle Earrings

I’ve named these earrings Winged Dangle Earrings because I don’t know the official name for them or the company that made them.

These were worn before her engagement to William. It looks like she was entering or leaving a nightclub when she was wearing these.

These look like a butterfly design (possibly) and appear to be made of silver (either sterling silver or silver plated). It’s difficult to get a decent closeup, but these appear to feature slightly curved metal pieces with a tiny metal ball at the end. There is a metal “head” at the top attached to a connecting hook.

If anyone knows where Kate might have gotten this pair from or what company made them, you can email me.  .

These egg-shaped drop earrings were famously worn for Kate and William’s engagement photo, shot by Mario Testino.

The Hope Egg earrings are made of sterling silver and white topaz. They are on French hooks and have a distinct egg shape.

From the company’s website: “The hope egg earrings- a very attractive and important symbol in Russian culture, traditionally given for birthdays, festivals, etc. This egg represents hope and new life and is decorated with white topaz.”

How very fitting that Kate chose these for her formal engagement photo. I’m very pleased with her choice. She could have worn diamonds or borrowed jewels from the Queen. Instead, she chose to wear a pair of small earrings to complement her cream Reiss dress.

Kate has worn them several times since the Mario Testino photo shoot.

These earrings are priced at a more affordable $475.

Cartier Trinity Necklace

Kate’s first public appearance wearing this necklace was at the National Portrait Gallery in London in 2012. At the time, she was an ambassador for the 2012 London Games. Many people viewed her choice in jewelry to be appropriate and fitting for the occasion.

The necklace features a few fine chains made of 18k gold with 4 small rose gold, yellow gold and white gold rings fitted together in an overlapping fashion. These 4 rings are positioned on the upper and middle sections of the necklace. At the very bottom is a larger ring made of the same metals. It looks like Kate’s necklace contains tiny diamonds on the rings.

I don’t think this exact necklace is available for sale from Cartier any longer. There are other versions of the Trinity necklace on their website.

The reported price of this piece is £49,000.

Kate wore it when she made a trip to NYC in 2014.
