On October 14, 2016, Kate debuted these new button earrings.
From the website: “Gilded details nod to natural oysters and Art Deco discs in these show-stopping button earrings, accented with lustrous Swarovski crystal pearls in statement, sea-inspired design. Handcrafted in America from weightless gold-plated pewter, this simple silhouette incorporates just the right amount of elegance into any look.”
• 5/8” long x 5/8” wide
• Clip backs with comfort pads
• Pewter / crystal pearl / brass
• Nickel-free / lead-free / cadmium-free
I admit I didn’t quite catch the reference to pearls in oyster shells until I read the description. It’s a clever design consisting of a round pearl centered in a hammered metal setting.
The earring attaches to the lobe by a post. The base of the main component is slightly curved at the rim, echoing the natural curvature of an oyster shell.
Here they are on Kate:
This pair retails for $190
