At first I thought I missed my chance to own these earrings, (they were sold out everywhere) but a friendly and kind Instagram replikater posted a photo of her earrings and stated she wasn’t sure she would keep them. Taking the initiative, I contacted her and asked if she would sell her earrings to me instead of returning them to the retailer.
Taking the initiative pays off sometimes. 🙂
They were sent to me in their Neiman Marcus box, very well wrapped. Inside the box was an OdlR pouch. The earrings were enclosed in a bubble wrapped plastic bag.
The earrings fastened on with a post and a metal earring back. I wore them for hours and felt virtually no discomfort. When I first put them on, they felt substantially weighty but not unbearably hefty.
Here they are on me.
They appear somewhat large at first, but as the day progressed they started to look more appealing and attractive on my ears.
These are fun to wear if you’re a fan of Princess Diana’s jewelry style. They look best when the hair is pulled away from the face.
On July 20, 2017, Kate brought out another pair of Oscar de la Renta earrings.
From the website: “Make a subtle statement in our wear-with-everything button earrings. Crafted with striking gold-plated sun stars, this darling pair is set with lustrous Japanese resin pearls. They’re the perfect pairing to everything from classic knits to trendy dresses.”
These earrings are made of pewter, resin pearls, brass and steel.
They feature a center pearl surrounded by yellow gold plated spikes and small spokes, encircling the center pearl and created a sunray effect.
On July 19, 2017, Kate wore these red crystal bead earrings to a party in Germany.
From the website: “Simone Rocha’s red beaded drop earrings are a fresh, elegant way to wear colour. This Italian-made pair echoes prints seen in the AW17 runway collection and features tiers of faceted flowers that decrease in size as they fall from the lobe. Fasten them at the gold-tone metal post backs, styling them as a graceful complement to this season’s off-the-shoulder necklines.”
Tiny clusters of red beaded flowers climb down and form the length of the earring. A distinct red beaded flowers is centered as the post, attaching the earring to the earlobe.
Displaying the white and red colors of the Polish flag in her ensemble, Kate stepped off the plane and into the first stop on the 2017 Poland/Germany tour wearing these ruby and diamond earrings.
I noticed the center stone is set in yellow gold. This is not a common feature of G Collins and Sons work, so I don’t believe these are their earrings.
An oval ruby stone is set in a yellow gold setting. It looks like the whole earring is set in yellow gold. Surrounding the ruby are small white diamonds. A yellow gold attachment connects the diamond post to the drop component.
There is some uncertainty about whether these are ruby stones are not. The color does not look like the usual shade of garnet to me, and given Kate’s history of wearing rubies, and the hue of this piece, I am inclined to say these are rubies.
