During her early 20s, Kate wore a pair of small pearl drop earrings.
Here is the closeup:
At a distance, these look like regular pearl drop earrings on a hook. In the closeup, we can see that they are attached to a silver cap, and the cap is attached to a silver hook.
She wore them to the horse trials in 2005 (photo above).
To her graduation ceremony in 2005.
To the Boodles Boxing Ball in 2006.
I haven’t seen these pearl earrings in a while. I think she has designated her Annoushka pearl drops her standard pearl earrings, so these have been retired. They are somewhat casual pearl drops and not fine jewelry, but it would still be nice to see them out and about.
I found a pair of earrings that are not exact duplicates, but they have a similar appearance to Kate’s.
They are called Classic Pearl Short Drop Earrings.
