Given there was no necklace - that was a bracelet statement. And not so big as to be Wonder Woman cuffs - but a genuine diamond presence that speaks to her royalty. IMO

This report doesn't mention that the earrings are Carole's but do mention the designer and the value of them.

"earrings by Robinson Pelham (the same brand who designed her wedding day jewelry) and what appears to be her Jimmy Choo Vamp pumps. Her earrings aren't just sparkly and dazzling, they run up quite the tab, too! Retailing for £14,300, they'll cost you approximately $22,000."

If they are Carole's, she could have gotten a discount price. The Middletons bought a lot of his stuff for the Royal wedding. They each had his stuff on during the wedding.

I've had that happen quite a bit with my jeweler so I know its not uncommon. Many times the retail price and what I actually paid for a piece was 50%-60% lower.

Plus all the free publicity from the wedding. That's has to be worth a major discount.

They could also be Kate's- perhaps Carole is the one who borrowed them initially.

I really do not care if they're Kate's or Carole's. What I do care about is unless I win the lottery I can't have them!!!!

Man, those are gorgeous!!

I think because Carole wore the earrings and matching necklace first (to the evening reception on Kate's wedding day) and 4 1/2 years later Kate wears the earrings for the first time is why people think that they are Carole's. If they where Kate's, I think we would have seen them earlier and if it was a wedding present , Carole probably wouldn't be wearing them on the day. Of course, it's all speculation. The jewelry that Carole wore on the wedding evening could have been loaners like the stars do for the Oscars and when Kate bought the gown , she remembered the earrings that her mom wore and bought them to go with the dress. Who knows.

A lovely piece of jewellery.
Letizia and somebody in the Danish royal family (not sure whether Marie or Mary) have the same earrings or a very similar pair.

Mary have a pair. But they are not the same. I looked closely!

I think Carole has worn them since the wedding at a another event. They are lovely earrings.
