The pearls themselves are rounded with a slight egg shape. The connector hoop is made of 18ct yellow gold. They are officially called Classic Baroque Pearl Earring Drops

It is believed that the diamond hoop she uses when she wears these is made by Kiki McDonough. This appears to be the case, since photo comparisons between the Classic Green Amethyst and Diamond earrings show that the hoops are of a similar size and appearance, and they also allow for some space between the hoop and the earlobe.

Kate has worn these numerous times. The most recent appearance of these pearl drops was when she visited the Downton Abbey set at Ealing Studios.
