Bahrain Pearl and Diamond Earrings

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.

Here they are on Kate.

From the website: “An ode to the kites that fly throughout South Asia for the annual kite festivals, the kite is such a simple joy of childhood. The triumph of that thin paper taking off in a gust of breeze up into the sky, the ducking and twirling up there in the sky with the birds. The 18 kt Gold kites flutter on these beautiful double drop earrings.”

A smaller rhombus shaped gold piece is placed on a larger rhombus shaped gold piece. Both are set on a gold hook. The smaller piece has rounded edges.

The price of these is $1,100 or £850.

Pearl Drop and Diamond Stud Earrings

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.

Update: The Telegraph has stated these were loaned to Kate by the Queen.

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.

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.”

Soru Baroque Pearl Earrings in Gold

To attend the Art Fund Museum of the Year Gala on July 6, 2016, Kate pulled out a new pair of earrings as well as a new brand for her.

She wore Soru Jewellery’s Baroque Pearl earrings, set in gold.

From the website: ” 18ct Yellow gold vermeil on sterling silver earrings for pierced ears.

Hand crafted with iridescent baroque pearls set within multi faceted Swarovski crystals.”

The lopsided surface of these earrings at first made me think of Annoushka’s pieces. Soon after I found out that these are from Soru.

A crystal-studded bezel post anchors the large baroque pearl drop, The drop itself is elongates and is framed with small Swarovski crystals.

Here they are on Kate.

They are pear-shaped diamond drops framed by smaller white diamonds in what I believe is a white gold setting. Suspended from the diamond is a diamond-encrusted cap on top of a freshwater white pearl.

Anna of My Small Obsessions believes this to be a bespoke design from Robinson Pelham.

Robinson Pelham declined to confirm if these are their designs. I personally agree with Anna, They look too similar to already-made designs from RP to not be from that company.

Since we are only making educated guesses and have no real confirmation from RP, I will not label these as their creations until I receive firm words from the company.

Here they are on Kate.
