In response to reader requests we are creating a ‘Jewelry’ page. This won’t be formatted quite the same as other pages; we’ll be including pieces that generate significant interest that may not be from a ‘favorite brand’. One other note: the best resources for information on Kate’s jewelry are My Small Obsessions and the Jewelry Worn by Catherine portion of the Diana’s Jewels website.
KIKI MCDONOUGH: The Duchess is frequently seen in her styles from this jewelry.
ANNOUSHKA: It’s not surprising the Duchess favors this brand. Annoushka Ducas actually designed the two pair of earrings shown above; she co-founded Links of London with her husband. Kate frequently wears a pair of earrings from the designer’s eponymous company, part of the Annoushka Pearls collection; the Pearl Drops are usually suspended on Kiki McDonough Diamond Hoops. (NOV 3, 2016: Previously we thought that Kate wore the Annoushka Eclipse Porcupine Hoops, but have not found any photos showing Kate wearing that specific hoop style. Our thanks to KC & Les JD for raising the topic in their comments!)
LINKS OF LONDON: Perhaps Kate’s most notable appearance in Links of London was for her more formal engagement photo, when she wore the Hope Egg earrings in white topaz. She has also shown a fondness for the brand’s Bubble Stiletto earrings, shown lower right.
