Kiki McDonough Eden Blue Topaz and 18ct White Gold Flower Necklace

On July 19, 2017, Kate debuted this blue topaz flower pendant necklace.

Photo credit: http://www.kiki.co.uk

From the website: “The stunning Eden necklace features a blue topaz flower surrounded by pave set diamonds in 18ct white gold. This pretty but bold necklace can be paired with the Eden flower gemstone earrings.”

This is the second Eden item Kate has worn in public. Her first were the Eden Flower Citrine earrings.

The necklace features four small blue topaz gemstones arranged in a box pattern: two on each side of the chain, spaced equidistant and across from each other. The largest and diamond encircled gemstone is centered at the bottom of the necklace. It is flower shaped and surrounded by small white diamonds. The entire necklace is set in white gold.

Here it is on Kate.

This costs £1,166.67 or $1520.77.

KristinM London Gold Acorn Pendant Necklace

Kate wore this necklace to Wimbledon in 2012.

From the website:

“The necklace is made of solid sterling silver gold plated with 18ct yellow gold. The acorn is around 9x8mm.
This necklace comes in three different lengths – 35, 41 and 46cm but as with all KristinM jewellery this can be altered at your request.

Also available in white or rose gold.”

The pendant is a yellow gold plated acorn with a very detailed and sculpted image, made to closely resemble an actual acorn. It hangs from a long chain. I think the chain is about 20 inches or more because it falls lower on her chest than an 18 inch chain would.

Kate also wear a box chain with this necklace.

Some are speculating the chain could be from Links of London. I am not sure, but if it is I would think Kate would wear it more often. It may just be a silver chain owned since before her marriage.

Here is the necklace on Kate:

This necklace costs £140 or $200 USD.

Vinnie Day Gold Plated Logo Leaf Earring

Kate wore these when she was on the North America tour in 2011.

From the website:

“These are a wonderful pair of earrings which we find never go ‘out of fashion’.  They are easy to wear both by day and night. Comfortable to keep in the ears.  The hoops themselves are 1.5cm with the leaf hanging off each hoop being 1.5cm so in total the earrings hang 3cm from the ear hole.

You can choose from our variety of different charms if you are not so keen on the leaves eg stars, shells, pistols…   These also come in Silver (£88 for a pair) and this price (£126) is for the pair of earrings in gold plate. ”

The earrings consist of an endless gold plated hoop and a satin-finish leaf charm, also plated in gold. The leaves have a somewhat flat surface with a raised line running down the center of them. Etched into the leaves are slanted horizontal lines, giving it a more accurate depiction of leaves.

Here they are on Kate.

Kiki McDonough Lauren Yellow Gold Pave Diamond Leaf Earrings

Kate first wore these earrings to a mental health awareness engagement at Harrow College on October 10, 2015.

From the website: “Beautiful and elegantly small these 18ct yellow gold and pave diamond leaf motif drop earrings are from our new Lauren Collection inspired by the British ballerina Lauren Cuthbertson.”

The earrings are yellow gold shaped into a spade leaf shape and attached to a thin gold bar which acts as the earring’s post. The thin gold bar and the gold leaf are studded with pave diamonds. In the style of Kiki’s pieces, a single small diamond is positioned where the gold bar and leaf meet, to fill in the space.

Here they are on Kate:

This is an exciting post for me to write because in a previous post, I selected the white gold version of these for Kate as a new pair I thought she should wear. I wonder if Kate reads my blog? ::P

The cost of these is £2,200 or $3,365 USD.

Catherine Zoraida Fern Hoop Earrings

Kate debuted these gold earrings at the Rugby World Cup.

“Made in 18ct gold plated silver, these divine fern earrings add a feminine touch to the traditional hoop earring. As seen on HRH The Duchess of Cambridge. Also available in silver. Width of fern hoop 22mm.”

The first half of the hoop is a standard thin line of gold and it blossoms out beautifully into a curved gold fern, completing the circle of gold. It is attached to a French hook.

Strictly speaking, these are not true hoops. Hoop earrings have a post which is attached directly to the hoop. They do not utilize a French wire/hook. However, Catherine Zoraida officially titled these earrings “hoop earrings” and many people would recognize these as hoop earrings.

Here they are on Kate:

It’s lovely to see these on Kate. They are a distant echo of what she wore before her marriage (she regularly wore hoop earrings during her mid 20s), and it’s great to see her in something modern and fun.

The cost of these earrings is £130, or about $200 USD.

Asprey London Woodland Charms Necklace

Kate cleverly selected three of Asprey’s charms from their Woodland collection to reflect her family’s coat of arms. 

These are the charms on a bracelet.

Catherine Zoraida Double Leaf Earrings

Kate has worn these earrings a few times, but the first and most notable appearance was at the evening reception hosted by the King of Malaysia during William and Kate’s visit to the country in 2012.

From the website: “These delicate leaf earrings are made in 18ct gold plated silver. Featuring beautifully engraved feather details they measure approximately 4.5cm and have a wonderfully playful feel to them. These timeless gold earrings are an everyday classic. As seen on The Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton).

Leaf length – 3cm”

They are a intriguing design for gold drop earrings. I’m happy to see these in her collection because they are formal enough for state occasions while being sensible. I think Kate chose wisely when she bought these. They will serve her well for many years.

The earrings consist of two lanceolate-shaped vermeil pieces attached to a hooked ear wire. The leaves are splayed outward, making each leaf visible simultaneously.

She wore them to the aforementioned evening reception in Malaysia, along with her bespoke Alexander McQueen gown.
