Kate debuted these gold earrings at the Rugby World Cup.
“Made in 18ct gold plated silver, these divine fern earrings add a feminine touch to the traditional hoop earring. As seen on HRH The Duchess of Cambridge. Also available in silver. Width of fern hoop 22mm.”
The first half of the hoop is a standard thin line of gold and it blossoms out beautifully into a curved gold fern, completing the circle of gold. It is attached to a French hook.
Strictly speaking, these are not true hoops. Hoop earrings have a post which is attached directly to the hoop. They do not utilize a French wire/hook. However, Catherine Zoraida officially titled these earrings “hoop earrings” and many people would recognize these as hoop earrings.
Here they are on Kate:
It’s lovely to see these on Kate. They are a distant echo of what she wore before her marriage (she regularly wore hoop earrings during her mid 20s), and it’s great to see her in something modern and fun.
The cost of these earrings is £130, or about $200 USD.
