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.
