It is believed that Fred gave Mary the French drop 3 tier aquamarine earrings along with the aquamarine pearl choker and other aquamarine pieces prior to her wedding.

Interesting information but the wrong thread! This is about Duchess of Cambridge.

That is one very beautiful gown, an amazing gown, I love it. She looks so happy and healthy. Her hair and make-up are perfect and of course she has a handsome prince on her arm........very beautiful indeed.

I could be very wrong but those earring seem to be a repeat: IIRC she wore them when she was in the early pregnancy with George at the bbctv sport personality in December 2012. (However I think I have seen them before)

have a look here:http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-J-_PikAAU6.../teal+kate.jpg

I hope that she'll keep this hairstyle in mind for her next tiara appearance! And those earrings suit her perfectly.

I should have known. When looking for information on the jewelry worn by Kate, do not pass Go, do not collect $200, but go directly to Anna's blog site.

Thanks for the direct link to these gorgeous earrings over at Kiki McDonough's site Anna. That gives me all the info I needed to know. Especially that they're Blue Topaz and not Aquamarine. You wouldn't think there's that much of a difference in the blues of the two stones, but you'd be surprised.

Thanks again Anna!! :)

The Duchess of Cambridge may have access to a collection of dazzling jewels that date back hundreds of years but the royal prefers to stay true to the designers she's championed for years.
Last night was case in point as she stepped out at the Royal Variety performance in a dazzling pair of Lola Blue Topaz Hoops by Kiki McDonough.
The £3,200 earrings comes in 18ct white gold and promise to add a splash of colour to any outfit.

I wonder if this means she will stop wearing Kiki McDonough. Every time a company gives a interview advertising her patronage, she puts the company on the black list.

Remember that New Zealand jeweler who bragged that Catherine bought her jewelry for the tour, then when the tour happened Catherine pointedly wore none of her jewelry. When the Issa designers started to brag to the media about being her favorite brand, she stopped wearing Issa. When her former hair dressers Richard Ward and the other guy started to give interviews about her and her hair she fired them.

It was mentioned: Kiki's designs were once worn by William's mother, Diana, Princess of Wales.

What jewellery designed by Kiki did Princess Diana wear?

Catherine reused the long gold earrings she has used at least twice earlier when she hosted a reception for Place2Be

Kiki pieces worn by Diana, were totally different in style than her current designs. I don't have pics etc. But this site is worth checking: Diana's Jewels

But actually other royal lady put Kiki McDonough into spotlight. It was Sarah, Duchess of York, who put her on the map. You can read that info on Kiki's website.

Those are by Cassandra Goad, called Temple by Heaven, still available to buy. She had them since 2010.

Kiki McDonough uses inexpensive materials and charges exorbitant prices. Blue topaz is one of the cheapest stones out there. I am not a fan of McDonough. As for wearing them with the black DVF, they are out of place, meaning they do not enhance the outfit. I do like the Goad earrings, but again, 9kt gold is a rip-off at those prices. I don't like to see anyone overpay like that.

I agree. I don't think the blue topaz earrings were placed well with the dress. It doesn't match anything else she's wearing. Diamonds would have added better kick than blue topaz. Or her sapphire and diamond earrings. I'm not a fan of these hoops.

"Kiki thinks Kate is an ideal customer. She said: 'She is a busy working mother like me, and I design jewellery that goes with that lifestyle. My designs have always reflected the way we live now, dashing from work to an event." I don't know many working mothers or working motherless women who can afford her jewelry.
