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.

From the company: “A wonderful pair of blue topaz oval and cushion cut stones surrounded by diamonds set in 18ct white gold to form the most stunning drop earrings.”

Here is the close up:

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.

A round pink tourmaline stone is set in a halo of white diamonds. Just under this is a single bezel diamond, and below that is a large pear shaped green amethyst stone, surrounded by small white diamonds.

These were customized for Kate, so her pair are not available for sale to the general public. The bottom stone is also different in shape from the stock image provided by Kiki.

The cost of the ones listed on the company website are  £5,340. Given the size of Kate’s earrings and the material composition, I would estimate hers cost a similar amount.

Monica Vinader Green Onyx Siren Wire Earrings

On September 27, 2016, Kate wore these Monica Vinader Siren earrings in green onyx.

From the website: “These simple, sophisticated earrings are great for everyday wear. The organic, irregular shaped multi-faceted Green Onyx gemstone is encased in 18ct Gold Plated Vermeil on Sterling Silver. The gemstone in these earring measures approximately 12mm x 10mm (0.47 x 0.4″).”

These are an intriguing choice for Kate because I considered buying them for myself before she wore them. It seems like we really do have similar tastes in jewelry.

The earrings consist of a faceted green onyx stone set in goldplated silver. They hang from a gold plated earring hook, giving them a short drop.

Monica Vinader’s Siren collection is described as “Colour gemstones and organic shapes inspired by sea-worn treasures and the glamour of southern Italy.”

Some information about the origin of their stones and the alterations made to them:  “Onyx is a chalcedony consisting of fine bands of quartz and morganite in a variety of colours. Our green onyx comes from India and is enhanced with natural dyes to attain its strong, pure bright green colour.”

The citrine version does not appear on Kiki McDonough’s website. It is widely believed that these earrings are bespoke.

The website offers a Lemon Quartz version.

Since these were bespoke, we don’t have a confirmed price, but the Lemon Quartz earrings retail at £2,900. I am assuming that is their cost is close to that number.

Cushion Cut Aquamarine and Diamond Pendant Necklace

At the Queen’s birthday church service, Kate wore her aquamarine and diamond drop earrings, along with a new pendant necklace.

Many of us in the Kate style blogging world have decided that this is most likely an aquamarine stone. The chain could be either white gold or silver, but I think it’s most likely white gold. The setting around the gemstone looks to be more round than square, and the aquamarine stone is set forward, slightly out of the halo.

Here it is on Kate:

There is some debate as to whether these are brown or dark red drops. They could be brown, but given that Kate usually coordinates her jewelry to match her outfit, I think it’s likely they could be dark red, perhaps garnet.

They are gemstone drop earrings set in yellow gold. Judging by the way the gold glistens, this could be goldplated brass. I think it’s not solid gold.
