So what do you think? Are these new earrings the Duchess is wearing at Christmas Day service? They look like a clear stone:

Looking at the second photo, you can see that the dangling jewel slides onto the hoop portion so apparently this can be interchangeable.

I really love Catherine's Christmas Day earrings. Classy and elegant, just like her

Wow; for that kind of money I'd expect the center stone to be the diamond, but I have a feeling it's the citrine.

I really like her hat, too. It's whimsical without being silly. I also like that she's brave enough to go tonal and not be all matchy-matchy. She actually looks like she's developing a sense of fun in her fashion, which is very good thing.

Hello. I'm new to Royal forums, but I have been foloowing Duchess of Cambridge jewelry for quite some time now.
It happens to be, I ID those earrings, over at WKW Facebook community, but Daily Mail got my info wrong, they are by Kiki McDonough, but they are with green amethyst not citrine.
I did close-ups at my site, here:

Welcome to the forums, and thank you for the clarification about the stone and the link to your site. I saw in your closeups that the hoops are encrusted with diamonds that also encircle the larger stones. So you're saying that these are green amethysts that Kate is wearing, then, and not citrine.

Citrine is a stone that also can be a pale green.

Yes correct, the hoops are encrusted with diamonds, and the green amethyst is set in gold with encrusted diamonds.
Here is the link to the Kiki earrings, now they are only available with citrine, but few months ago, there were also with green amethyst.

Like I said, , I have been following her jewelry for a few moths now, she already has kiki earrings with citrine.
Her eyes are green, and the Kiki site sold such earrings with green amethyst. So I believe that what I wrote is correct, especially that in the close ups you can clearly see the colour is not yellow, opposite, to her other citrine drop earrings.

The Kiki McDonough website has a photo which shows her wearing a similar pair of earrings in June of this year.

Diamonds that size would cost significantly more....

I happen to like the citrine earrings! Great size and they seem to dangle slightly, wonder if they actually WERE a Christmas Gift from Prince William?

I like the earrings. They do appear to be Prasiolite and the "trim" stones are probably a natural white stone, white topaz or zircon (not cubic zirconia) or white sapphire). If they were all diamond, they would be $20,000 earrings. Very pretty.

Well, they're lovely but $3,000 for a pair of earrings with a semi-precious center stone? Even though they're 18K and have diamonds, that is a lot of money, IMO. I guess I haven't done a lot of jewelry shopping lately to know current prices!

And on the other hand, I really like the soft application of Kate's eyeliner in the photo on the Grazia Fashion link. You can see the difference when you scroll down and look at the second picture. What a nice improvement.

I agree on the price, it's way too much.
But I guess it's a price that includes the name & mark "Kiki" ...

KittyAtlanta, those earrings are with diamonds. She has other Kiki earrings with topaz and diamonds.
