From the website: “An ode to the kites that fly throughout South Asia for the annual kite festivals, the kite is such a simple joy of childhood. The triumph of that thin paper taking off in a gust of breeze up into the sky, the ducking and twirling up there in the sky with the birds. The 18 kt Gold kites flutter on these beautiful double drop earrings.”

A smaller rhombus shaped gold piece is placed on a larger rhombus shaped gold piece. Both are set on a gold hook. The smaller piece has rounded edges.

From the website: “These simple, sophisticated earrings are great for everyday wear. The organic, irregular shaped multi-faceted Green Onyx gemstone is encased in 18ct Gold Plated Vermeil on Sterling Silver. The gemstone in these earring measures approximately 12mm x 10mm (0.47 x 0.4″).”

These are an intriguing choice for Kate because I considered buying them for myself before she wore them. It seems like we really do have similar tastes in jewelry.

The earrings consist of a faceted green onyx stone set in goldplated silver. They hang from a gold plated earring hook, giving them a short drop.

Monica Vinader’s Siren collection is described as “Colour gemstones and organic shapes inspired by sea-worn treasures and the glamour of southern Italy.”

Some information about the origin of their stones and the alterations made to them:  “Onyx is a chalcedony consisting of fine bands of quartz and morganite in a variety of colours. Our green onyx comes from India and is enhanced with natural dyes to attain its strong, pure bright green colour.”

From the website: ” 18ct Yellow gold vermeil on sterling silver earrings for pierced ears.

Hand crafted with iridescent baroque pearls set within multi faceted Swarovski crystals.”

The lopsided surface of these earrings at first made me think of Annoushka’s pieces. Soon after I found out that these are from Soru.

A crystal-studded bezel post anchors the large baroque pearl drop, The drop itself is elongates and is framed with small Swarovski crystals.

Here they are on Kate.

The citrine version does not appear on Kiki McDonough’s website. It is widely believed that these earrings are bespoke.

The website offers a Lemon Quartz version.

Since these were bespoke, we don’t have a confirmed price, but the Lemon Quartz earrings retail at £2,900. I am assuming that is their cost is close to that number.

Wartski Yellow Gold Wedding Band

In keeping with tradition, Kate received a yellow gold wedding band during her marriage ceremony to William.

 

At the 2:30 mark the ring makes an appearance.

Kate has worn it ever since. It’s made from 18k Welsh gold which is already owned by the British royal family.

The gold is of a soft, bright yellow which is a true yellow. It doesn’t appear to have any orange or dark yellow tones.

The band is slim, smooth and doesn’t appear to have any engravings. If it does, it most likely is on the inside of the ring, since I cannot detect any engravings on the outer surface.

It is not exactly known which jewelry company made Kate’s ring. Thanks to My Small Obsessions for the new information! The ring was made by Wartski, a British family firm.

I found a Welsh company which claims to use the same gold that has been used to make royal wedding rings for generations.

Clogau offers wedding rings made in the style of Kate’s ring. The rings are a part of the Windsor collection. Link can be found here.

You can read more about their connection to royal wedding rings here.

There is some debate as to whether these are brown or dark red drops. They could be brown, but given that Kate usually coordinates her jewelry to match her outfit, I think it’s likely they could be dark red, perhaps garnet.

They are gemstone drop earrings set in yellow gold. Judging by the way the gold glistens, this could be goldplated brass. I think it’s not solid gold.

Here they are on Kate:
