From the website: ” “Brilliant-cut micro-pavé white diamonds with a cumulative weight of 0.23 carats are meticulously hand set into this 18ct white gold eternity ring, putting a uniquely modern twist on a classic piece of jewellery.”

The ring is set apart from typical eternity rings by its firm band of white gold on either side of the diamonds. Most eternity rings feature unbordered diamonds.

Kiki McDonough Lavender Amethyst Pear and Oval Drop Earrings

Remember when I said I wanted to see more purple jewelry on Kate? My wish was finally granted!

Kate wore these lavender amethyst earrings on April 14, 2016, to meet with King Jigme Khesar Namgyl Wangchuck and his wife, Queen Jetsun Pema.

From the website: “Stunning drop earrings featuring large pear and oval shaped lavender amethyst stones surrounded by dazzling diamonds set in 18ct white gold.”

Here is the closeup:

They are made of two lavender amethyst stones: one pear shaped, the other slightly oval. Each stone is framed by tiny white diamonds. The pear shaped drop dangles beneath the oval one and is set (in Kiki’s signature style) with a single bezel white diamond between the two, to act as an “attachment” from the front (I’m sure the bezel is also set in gold, but from the front it appears as though the two stones are connected by one diamond). The entire earring is set in white gold.

They aren’t as massive as the Amrapali earrings, but they are not terribly small either.

Here they are on Kate.

These cost £3,900 or $5,538.

This is a rather fun post to write because these earrings were chosen by Elizabeth George as a piece she wanted to see Kate wear. It’s very exciting when Kate actually wears pieces we select for her. 🙂 You can read about it here. 

Garrard’s Sapphire and Diamond Engagement Ring

Cataloguing Kate’s jewelry collection wouldn’t be complete without a post about her engagement ring.

As many already know, Kate’s ring used to be belong to her late mother-in-law. In 1981, Lady Diana Spencer chose the stone “from a selection presented to her by the then Crown jewellers Garrard of Mayfair. It cost £28,500 but, unusually for a choice by a member of the Royal Family, it was not unique and any member of the public could buy the same ring from the Garrard catalogue”. *

The ring was made by Garrard in London, and consists of one large oval Ceylon sapphire surrounded by 14 solitaire diamonds. It is set in white gold.

Some reports state that the sapphire is 12 carats. However, Ayvee of Diana’s Jewels believes that it may be 9 carats.

Here it is on Kate:

Echoing the design of the necklace, the bracelet is made of white gold and features two lines of small round diamonds encircling the wrist. In between the two lines are smaller lines of diamonds running perpendicular to them, creating “cells” for the rubies and diamonds to be set inside them. Small circles studded with diamonds and flower-shaped rubies with diamond centers alternate between each cell, creating a diamond circle/ruby flower/diamond circle motif. I believe this has a fluid link (fold over clasp).

This is believed to be a part of a set Kate received when she married William.
