Before she acquired her more muted green earrings, the Kiki McDonough Green Amethyst and Diamond Oval Drop Earrings, Kate wore these bright emerald halo earrings.
They are quite similar to her Sapphire and Diamond Earrings in terms of design.
The center stone is a bright round emerald. Surrounding the emerald are 10 small round white diamonds, forming a halo setting. A single round diamond set in gold acts as the earring’s post. My best guess is these are set in white gold.
She wore them in November 2012 to the National History Museum Treasures Gallery opening.
In Canberra, Australia in 2014.
I wonder about the origin of these earrings. They look so similar to Diana’s sapphire and diamond earrings, I wondered at first if these belonged to her. But Diana owned only one pair of real emerald earrings, and it didn’t look like these.
