The earring appears to be a round silver disc flanked by two silver beads. It’s attached to a silver hoop which is then attached to a silver hook.

I haven’t found any information confirming that these are really Jigsaw’s earrings. I have a sneaking suspicion that these might be Claudia Bradby earrings instead. The design and style of them (clunky and consisting of several components strung together) is more like Claudia Bradby’s signature style.

I will email Claudia Bradby and ask if these are their earrings.

Update: Through Anna of My Small Obsessions, I have found out that Claudia Bradby did admit these were not her earrings. She said they do look very similar to some of her past collections, but they are definitely not hers.

Claudia Bradby Kate Rose Quartz and Silver Necklace

Kate never actually wore this necklace. But she did design it.

In 2007,  Kate was working for Jigsaw as an accessories buyer. Through Jigsaw, she teamed up with Claudia Bradby to design a necklace for girls aged 6-18.

From the website: “Designed in collaboration with Kate Middleton, this delicate silver pendant framed with rose quartz and pearl charms is fittingly feminine. Layer with the Camellia necklace for a full effect.

The pink pearl is traditionally a symbol of love and today rose quartz is known as ‘the stone of gentle love’.”

It features a silver nugget pendant, a small piece of polished rose quartz, and a soft pink pearl. The three pieces hang on a silver chain.

The cost of this is £63 or $98

 

Claudia Bradby Rose Quartz and Amazonite Camellia Necklace

Kate worked for Jigsaw from 2006 to 2007 as an accessories buyer. During this time, she collaborated with jewelry designer Claudia Bradby to create a new design of necklace for Jigsaw’s junior section.

Kate also wore one of Claudia Bradby’s necklaces for a time. Her chosen necklace was the Camellia.

From the website: “The design that caught the eye of Kate Middleton, our amazonite and rose quartz on sterling silver hoop necklace is an exquisite piece of jewellery that will accesorise your wardrobe beautifully. Length 81.5cm.

Rose quartz and amazonite are both associated with love and said to balance the emotions and promote calm.”

It’s a rather fun and colorful necklace. It features silver hoops throughout a long silver chain. Some of the hoops are fitted with either a round rose quartz stone or a round amazonite stone.

Kate casually wore this necklace throughout 2007, sometimes pairing it with her more costly Asprey 167 Button pendant.
