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.

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.

The ones on the right are a turquoise version which are similar to Kate’s. They feature a very elaborate four point design on top of an oval pendant made of what I believe to be brass and lapis lazuli (Anna of MSO believes they are lapis as well). Golden circles sit next to each other to form a chain at the bottom of the pendant, and in the center of this “chain” is a round, bordered golden disc, Blue beads dangle from the very bottom of the pendant by golden connectors.

Here they are on Kate:

The earrings are set in yellow gold and feature two lapis stones (one oval-shaped and one square-shaped). The two stones are suspended one above the other (square stone on top) and framed with tiny diamonds.

You can see the yellow gold from the back.

These specific earrings are not available on any site I can find. The Kate fashion and accessory documenters used this image as what could have been an early design template for Kate’s earrings. We believe this to be a slightly different version.

This version of the earrings she wears costs $2,900. I imagine Kate’s earrings are priced around the same amount.   Kate’s earrings cost £1,360 or $1,958.

I’ve been trying to properly name this color. It looks like a stormy deep blue with tones of green.

But in this photo, it looks more teal.

The bracelet is made of capsule-shaped stones (possibly quartz) set in gold plated metal and linked by four gold metal beads on each side of each capsule. I am assuming this is a stretch bracelet.

Lola Rose Open Heart Necklace

The Kate effect was in effect before she married William.

Back in 2005, Kate attended a horse trial event wearing this open heart necklace in a greenish-baby blue shade.

The necklace is no longer available for purchase. Kate Middleton’s Style did a great job of archiving the company’s information on it.

“As seen on Kate Middleton, the classic Lola Rose New Medium Open Heart Pendant is a perfect gift for yourself or a loved one. You can feel special in any outfit with this pendant, as the cord can be tied at any length you choose to suit all necklines.”

The necklace is a cut-out heart pendant made of what looks to be either blue or aqua chalcedony. The heart is slightly lopsided and somewhat rounded. It’s attached to a suede cord wrapped around it at the top, near the center. There is no connector between the cord and the pendant.

It appears more blue on Kate.

It’s a teardrop shaped stone (most likely aquamarine) set in what I believe is white gold. It looks like the setting’s face is crusted with diamonds. There is a line of 5 diamonds connecting the drop to a post.

No one has been able to identify the jewelry designer behind this piece. Many believe it’s Asprey, but no one is really sure.

Once I find out more about this pair of earrings, I will update.
