It was inevitable that Kate was going to be seen in public, with the classic, reliable and unfailingly chic pearl stud earring.
Kate paired hers with a blue outfit at the 2012 London Summer Olympic Games.
Visiting the Olympic Sailing venue for the same Game year.
These are sizable studs. Kate’s set looks to be about 9-10 mm. I own a pair of 6mm pearl studs, and mine are definitely smaller than hers.
Given how common pearl studs are, Kate could have gotten hers anywhere. However, I wonder if hers are from Annoushka.
They make a pearl stud earring that is 10mm, about the same size as Kate’s.
I have no confirmation on this. Kate already owns jewelry from Annoushka, so it’s possible she also owns their studs.
This is my favorite Kate look with these earrings:
