They're very lovely, and I hope it's one of her gifts received rather than being a fabulous fake. I love the dangling style on her.

Why does it even matter if they R fake as long as they are beautiful. Just because you have access to large sums of money doesn't mean you have to use it.

We don't know if they're fake, although they're pretty, but I'm sitting on the fence about these earrings until I know they're genuine!

They are made of sterling silver (most likely) with marcasites. Those are not diamonds or anything like it, but they were perfect with that dress imho. I like all her choices of jewellery. But yesterday's look was perfect to every little detail.

For me, I know there are a bazillion earrings and necklaces with fabulous stones in the Queen's collection and it would be nice to see some of them. But I don't know that Katherine has access to many of them or if she has been gifted with many nice pieces.

So true, Sndral. And the burning question for me is why Kate doesn't wear her wedding earrings. It would be a shame if she's reserving them only to wear with the Scroll tiara, which will be who knows when. I don't understand why she doesn't use them with her eveningwear; this dress is one of several that calls out for those earrings to be worn. I also would have liked if she wore her diamond bracelet as well; this gown could have used something on her arm (other than William, of course!).

I think I read that those earrings were on loan from the Queen, so perhaps Kate has returned them and didn't wish to ask again?

I suppose she could replicate them, but why should she when she will eventually have more jewels than she could ever wear?

I guess one can't go to the Queen and ask for jewelry loans unless it's for major tours or events, and I'm sure HM would have to offer them, but that's why I wish Kate would wear her wedding earrings on occasion if she can't borrow from the vault.

Those earrings were beautiful; I would think Kate would want to wear them for every special occasion.

I think Catherine wore a brooch today during the luncheon - anybody has a close-up picture.

I believe she is wearing the same earrings she wore to teh Boodle's Boxing Club charity event many years ago. Can anyone identify the earrings she was wearing at today's luncheon?

Not a close-up, but the Express article at least got a picture without her hair over the brooch..

I don't really know if theses pictures are any better, but I thought they were her wedding earrings. I'm probably wrong, but I can't really see them anyway. I wish I knew what brooch that was and where it came from.

Really ridiculous to wear a brooch and have your hair cover it. She could have placed it in the middle as Queen Mary did. She looks beautiful in that color pink.

As for the earrings, she wore them in 2010 to two weddings with blue Issa dress in October and with black Libelula coat in January.
As for the brooch, there are no good shots on it... Mainly because her hair are o on it...
But I think (it's only my assumption), she is wearing oak leaves because of her Royal Coat of Arms. But untill someone finds great quality photo, it will be unsolved mystery.
