I was in a Francesca’s store recently just browsing, and I saw something that made my heart leap.
It was these earrings, the pendants almost-exact duplicates for Kate’s Mappin & Webb earrings.
Here are the Mappin & Webb earrings:
Here are the Francesca’s version.
These are silver plated and made with cubic zirconias. The differences are:
-Absence of a leverback clasp (they are fitted with a French hook).
-The M&W earrings are 15x30mm. The Francesca earrings are just a little bigger than 10mm. Therefore they are considerably smaller than Kate’s earrings.
-The center motif is similar, but not exactly the same. The Francesca earrings feature an equal armed cross in the center, while the M&W version feature a cluster of diamonds in the center of four spade-shaped holes. Despite these difference, at a distant it looks very similar to M&W’s earrings.
If you did wish to own these as a decent repliKate, you could take them to a jeweler and ask that they switch out the French hook for a longer leverback clasp.
These cost $12 USD.
