From the website: “The stunning Eden necklace features a blue topaz flower surrounded by pave set diamonds in 18ct white gold. This pretty but bold necklace can be paired with the Eden flower gemstone earrings.”

This is the second Eden item Kate has worn in public. Her first were the Eden Flower Citrine earrings.

The necklace features four small blue topaz gemstones arranged in a box pattern: two on each side of the chain, spaced equidistant and across from each other. The largest and diamond encircled gemstone is centered at the bottom of the necklace. It is flower shaped and surrounded by small white diamonds. The entire necklace is set in white gold.

Here it is on Kate.

This costs £1,166.67 or $1520.77.

Beige Smooth Shell Necklace

On May 24, 2011, one of Kate’s first engagements upon returning from her honeymoon was to meet with the Obamas.

She accessorized her lovely Reiss Shola dress with this shell necklace.

The necklace appears to be made of elongated, curved pale beige shells speckled with a black pattern. I don’t possess enough knowledge of conchology to identify what type of shells they are. I speculate that they could be some type of cowry shell. I found these and these images of cowrie shells. They both look similar to the pattern on Kate’s necklace.

Kiki McDonough Morganite Double Drop Earrings

On May 20, 2017, Kate wore these special edition earrings to her sister’s wedding.

Being that they are special edition, they are not currently available on the website.

They are composed of cushion cut morganite stones rotated 45 degrees and set in a halo of small white diamonds. The post is set in gold. Below this is a bezel diamond suspended above the large oval drop, similar to the posts’ design (morganite surrounded by tiny white diamonds.

Here they are on Kate:

I estimate these cost more than $5,000. Many similar Kiki styles run up to that price.

A round blue topaz gemstone is placed in a halo setting and acts as the post for the earring. A bezel diamond stud connects the cushion cut blue topaz gemstone that dangles beneath the post. The cushion cut stone is also placed in a halo setting.

It is noticeable that these blue topaz earrings appear to be paler in hue than Kate’s other Kiki McDonough blue topaz pieces.

Here they are on Kate.

These cost £3,500.

 

Mabe Pearl Necklace

On March 17, 2017, Kate wore this mabe pearl necklace to a reception held at the British Embassy in Paris.

Many of us suspected it could be the matching necklace to the Balenciaga earrings she also wore. If one looks at the border of the pearl setting, it lacks the crystals the Balenciaga earrings feature.

One of the more unique pieces Kate owns, this necklace features four large mabe pearls suspended in a somewhat asymmetrical pattern. One mabe pearl is centered on a metal chain (possibly white gold) and under this are two pearls on slim chains, the left chain considerably shorter than the right chain. The second pearl on the right side has one more pearl attached below it. The chain drop is shorter than the drop for the pearl above it. This gives it the aforementioned asymmetrical effect.
