Kiki McDonough Kiki Classic Peridot and Blue Topaz Double Oval Studs

We’ve seen this pair on Kate just once. I’m desperately longing to see them again, because they are one of the most striking earring sets in her collection.

From the website: “A firm Kiki favourite; these double oval stud earrings come in an array of vibrant colour combinations and are exceptionally easy and fun to wear. This pair features stunning peridot, blue topaz and diamonds set in 18ct yellow gold.”

I want to point out that Kate’s pair actually does not have the diamonds shown in the stock photo. Hers have been replaced with smaller peridot stones.

An oval peridot sits atop a slightly larger oval blue topaz stone. To fill in the gap where these two meet, there are two small peridot stones nestled in the empty space.

Kate wore them to the African Cats premiere in April 2012. They complement her Matthew Williamson dress quite nicely.

The cost of these is £1,400 or $2,140.

Kiki McDonough Lola Blue Topaz Hoops

I quite like these earrings chosen by the Duchess for more formal events and appearances. They’re opulent and glittery enough for palace duties, but they’re also a very contemporary pair of earrings, marking Kate as a modern style icon who knows that her place in world history as a British royal means that her look should feature current jewelry styles.

From the company’s website: “A new design to the Lola Collection these stunning blue topaz and diamond hoops in 18ct white gold add a splash of colour for every day. Also available in a mini size and a matching pendant to complete the look.”

I must thank Diana’s Jewels for information on the details about these earrings.

These earrings are a part of the Lola collection. There are 11 blue topaz stones set in white gold. The bottom 4 stones are larger than the remaining 7. The stones become smaller as they lead to the top of the hoop. There is a small, diamond covered white gold ear hoop attached to the hoop. A small diamond fills in the spot where the two meet.

Here is is on Kate.
