On March 18, 2017, Kate debuted these dainty earrings in Paris.
From the website: “Designed by Louis Cartier in 1924, the Trinity ring is a signature design of the Cartier Maison. The three interlaced bands in pink, yellow and white gold symbolize love, fidelity and friendship. The ring has inspired the full Trinity collection, a timeless testament to life’s most memorable loves.
Trinity de Cartier earrings, 18K white gold, 18K pink gold, 18K yellow gold, each set with 1 brilliant-cut diamond of 0.04 carat.”
On March 28, 2017, Kate wore these earrings to the National Portrait Gallery in London.
“Stunning pear drop green amethysts and pretty round pink tourmalines surrounded by delicate diamonds set in 18ct yellow gold make these truly beautiful earrings.”
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.
Here they are on Kate:
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.
On November 13, 2016, Kate brought out a pair of earrings that have been worn in public before, but just not by her.
At the Rememberance Day 2016 event, she accessorised with Queen Elizabeth’s Bahrain earrings.
They are named such because the single pearls which grace the very ends of the pendant components are from a wedding gift bestowed upon Princess Elizabeth from the then ruler of Bahrain. It was a shell containing seven pearls. Two of the seven were used to make these earrings.
Each earring is set with eight white diamonds: a larger round stud acting as the earring’s post, one small round stud just under it, three baguettes arranged with the longer diamond in the center, flanked by two shorter baguettes, three small white diamonds shaped as a triad, and finally the gifted pearls finish off the unit.
On November 22, 2016, Kate wore this pair of diamond earrings.
We know she borrowed them from the Queen, because HM wore them in 2012.
The main component of the earrings is a substantial pendant drop. The drop features a loop of small white diamonds formed into a teardrop shape. The center of the loop contains a linear formation of diamonds: three small bezels and one larger at the bottom. The pendant is affixed to a pear shaped stud. The stud features a single white diamond in a halo setting. Flanking the section between the pendant and stud are two marquise diamonds.
Kate first wore these earrings on the Royal Tour of Canada this year. She wore them again on her first solo overseas trip to The Netherlands.
These earrings are not unfamiliar to some of us. Anna of My Small Obsessions notes that both Queen Elizabeth II and Sophie, Countess of Wessex have worn them. Anna believes this pair belongs to the Queen and she loans them to other Royal women.
They are quite simple: a diamond stud on the earlobe and an egg shaped pear drop attached as a dangle. I have seen video of Kate wearing these earrings. The pearl moves freely so I can confirm that they are not stationary.
