I don't like the green stones with the blue stones.

and they are so exquisite in person. I was in London in October and went to Kiki's store - I tried them on and almost bought them - I came very close - but it was the last day of an already expensive trip... so I reluctantly put them back. but they look soo pretty on Kate. the peridot and blue topaz together were so fresh and pretty - a great combination.

I really like the color combination of stones, like the blues and greens of the sea.

Don't know about the earrings but the brooch is not ruby; it's the Crystal Buckley Brooch that retail for £15.
They are available from Royal British Legion online Poppy Shop website. Looks gorgeous though.

It's a special poppy, which is worn in remembrance of British troops who have given their lives for their country. The proceeds from the sale of these brooches go to the Royal British Legion who support service personnel and their families.

I'm not sure I'd call it 'costume jewellery'.

I like the crystal poppy brooch; it's really unusual. And those gold earrings are very dramatic and suit her well. It's nice to see her wearing jewelry with more flair.

One question to my fellow posters - I am not aware, that the duchess has ever worn the earrings from her wedding again - the one which she has received from her parents with the achorns.
I know she has not worn a tiara again - but I would have expected at least the earrings - did I miss anything?

I don't believe she has worn them since, certainly not publicly. It's possible, for example, that she wore them at Christmas at Sandringham given that the RF dress formally for meals at Christmas. Or maybe she's waiting for a really special occasion.

I personally like those earrings, their pattern looks like Celtic one.

Hers are larger than this and don't have diamonds but peridots. You can see a picture of what her earrings are on my site:
Catherine's Earrings

I was mistaken too about the diamonds until someone shared the new info with me.

Those are pretty pearl drop earrings, but I wish they were larger. She can certainly wear a larger set of pearls.
