Kate Spade Pretty Pom Tassel Earrings in Sumac

On April 4, 2017, Kate donned  a surprisingly whimsical choice of earrings for opening night of 42nd Street at the Drury Theatre.

From the company: ” according to our creative director, deborah lloyd, “tassels are the new bows.” and, in bright hues, the ultra-chic design elements are especially well-suited to jewelry. each of the earrings and pendants in our new pretty poms collection is made from colorful silk thread and glass beads, for a look that’s equal parts elegant and eye-catching.”

The earrings are made of silk tassels in crimson and tomato red hues, interspersed with gold plated rings to cinch the threads into tassel form.

The earrings are about 3.5 inches long. They are suspended from a French hook.

They cost $98 USD.


Oscar de la Renta Pearl Gold Disc Button Earrings

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.

This pair retails for $190

Shopping With Kate: Zara Crystal Bead Necklace

I was surprised to see this necklace available on Ebay for just $45. It was $10 more than the original retail price, but still affordable for me.


The necklace is beautiful and very sparkly.





It is somewhat heavy and very much a statement piece. Some people feel that the necklace looked cheap on Kate when she wore it to the premiere of Mandela, but I think it is a very good example of how well made costume jewelry can be.

I am happy with my necklace and I think I will wear it to many events and parties.

The earrings are clip-ons. I think this may be a first for Kate. She has only publicly worn hook or post earrings to my knowledge.

They are set in silver toned metal and surrounded by white crystals.

She pulled them out again when she attended an event to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Somme.

Black & White Polka Dot Stretch Bracelet

While out clubbing in May 2007, Kate was seen wearing this costume jewelry bracelet.

The closeup shows us that this is a stretchy cuff-style bracelet that is divided into square sections. Each segment is connected to the others by stretch cords. The bracelet is primarily black with white polka dots arranged across it in a neat three row pattern, two dots per row. There are 6 white dots on each segment.

Here it is on Kate.

Kate new

Here is the more recent closeup.

They are extremely large earrings. A burnished ball post is the anchor for the pear shaped pendant. The pendant is a concave silver disc with a rim of silver at the borders. It looks like the pendant is gunmetal gray while the ball post is a yellowish gray.I estimated that these are perhaps 3.5 inches long, maybe even longer.

It looks like these are rock crystals, set in a teardrop/small post style. They are possibly set in silver or mixed metals.

Here is a clearer photo of her wearing them.

She may have worn them more recently (December 2016) to a private event.

When I first saw this, I assumed the upper pendant was silver. I believe it’s a white and black pendant. If I am proven wrong I will correct the information.

Beneath the first pendant is an oval, orange stone set in silver. Both pendants are attached to a plastic or rubber chain cord. It could also be a chain of gemstone or quartz stones.
