Mappin & Webb Fortune White Gold Mid Length Necklace

Kate tends to rely on this necklace a lot when she needs a small piece of jewelry to wear with her business casual outfits.

From the website: “This unique gold necklace from the Mappin & Webb Fortune collection features 0.97 carats of round brilliant-cut diamonds set in 18 carat white gold; a celebration of luck and good fortune. The chain measures 46 cm (18 inches).”

While I think the necklace is beautiful, I don’t see it as being unique. It’s a simple twist circle studded with diamonds, attached to a white gold loop strung through with a white gold chain.

Kate wore this to the ICAP Art Room opening (which was mentioned in this post).

I quite like this pairing of the cool toned earrings and necklace with the royal blue LK Bennett dress. She wore these same earrings and necklace with a red Katherine Hooker dress, and I wasn’t particularly fond of that look because I think red outfits could use some yellow gold jewelry instead.

In the photo below she is wearing it at the Brookhill Children’s Centre in March of 2015.

The cost of this is £3, 950, or $6,041.

Garnet & Pearl Gold Ring

Ayvee of Diana’s Jewels very astutely points out that the stones on this yellow gold ring correlate with Kate’s and William’s birth months.

Many people speculate that it was given to Kate as a gift from William because she started wearing it while she was dating him.

The ring is a somewhat thick band studded with pearls and garnets (June’s gemstone is pearl, January’s is garnet). It doesn’t look like the gemstones surround the entire band. They appear to cover the visible part of the ring only.

She wore it while visiting Action on Addiction in 2013.

It also looks like she is wearing it in this photo from March 2012 when she visited the UK Scouts at the Great Tower Scout Camp.

Links of London Effervescence Bubble Stiletto Earrings

Kate first wore these earrings to the Ark Gala in 2011.

From the website: “Sterling silver bubbles come together to form tactile clusters on these Effervescence Bubble Stiletto Earrings. Lavender iolite stones echo the iridescence of bubbles, creating perfect jewellery for evening glamour.”

I think the churning of bubbles is a unique inspiration for jewelry creation.

The photo above is heavily photoshopped. The actual earrings are not so dark.

The earring stud which pins to the earlobe is made of sterling silver and lavender iolite. A thin chain extends downward and ends at a sterling silver ball with a corrugated texture. The length of the drop is 3.6 cm/1.4 inches.

Kate wore these to the Trooping of the Colour in 2012.

I love seeing her in cool tones. She looks lovely in ice blue and bright silver.

These earrings cost $225 on the U.S site. 

White Layered Disc Necklace

During her early 20s, Kate was spotted wearing this white necklace.

The above photo was taken in April 2007.

Here is a close up.

Update: My Small Obsessions has a better closeup, which I will post here.

The necklace appears to be made of white discs (possibly made of plastic, but I’m not sure). The discs overlap each other and are attached to a slim white cord   strand of white beads that wrap around the neck.

Here is another photo of her wearing this necklace. This might have been taken in 2006 or 2007.

My best guess is that this is costume jewelry. I can’t think of a particular company that makes this necklace, but in my search I did find one of a similar style in case anyone is interested in this type of necklace. Here it is. 

Kiki McDonough Classic Green Amethyst and Diamond Cushion Drop Earrings

These are a favorite of Kate’s and she wears them quite frequently.

The photo from Kiki McDonough’s website shows the yellow gold version, complete with yellow gold hoops.

. Kate appears to own the drops that have yellow gold settings and links, but her hoops are the white gold version with diamonds.

The website describes these as: “Dazzling green amethyst and 18ct yellow gold cushion drops only.”

It appears that the hoops are made of white gold.

These, along with her Classic Green Amethyst and Diamond Oval Drops seem to be her go-to earrings whenever she wears a green or bluish outfit.

She wore these to the opening of the ICAP Art Room at Northolt High School in February 2014.

She also wore them during her December 2014 trip to NYC.

The hoops retail for £500, or $775 and the amethyst drops retail for £800, or $1,240.

Side note: In case you missed it, I wrote a post explaining the truth behind green amethyst.

Diamond Cross Pendant

Kate wore this to the Order of the Garter Service in 2011.

I have not been able to find the jewelry company that made this. Diamond cross pendants are not uncommon or unique, and many companies make very similar looking pendants.

I had an idea that Annoushka could have made this, but I don’t think I’m correct about this. Here is the pendant if you want to take a look. Kate’s pendant is stockier and less elongated (although it is not an equal-armed cross).

Kate’s pendant is made of diamonds set in white gold The top point and the side points of the cross appear to be of equal length. The bottom point is slightly longer than the others. The chain it hangs from appears to be made of white gold.

She also wore in during a trip to Santa Barbara, California in 2011.

Heavenly Necklaces The Pearl and Diamond Earrings

These are the earrings that launched a small jewelry company into the spotlight.

From the website: “This picture really doesn’t show just how beautiful these resin pearl and diamond CZ pearl drop earrings really are – especially for bridal wear or on the balcony at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations. As a result they’ve suddenly proved…rather popular!

The graduated ‘diamond’ stones form the total length of these wonderful earrings at approx 30mm, including the 9mm pearl.  They really are lovely – very popular with brides, and we always feel honoured to be represented at such an important occasion!”

It should be noted that these are not real pearls. Any pearl not coated in nacre is an artificial pearl.

It comes in two sizes: 9mm and 11mm. It looks Kate is wearing the 9mm.

The earrings are made of three cubic zirconia studs set in silver and attached by silver links. At the bottom is a silver cap to which a resin pearl is attached.

Kate made the whole world aware of Heavenly Necklaces when she wore these to the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
