i do believe these are new to Kate - but they do look older/more traditional in style - wonder if these were found in HM's jewel box?

Anna has hunted an ID for these before. Possible ID as the Queen's. See more at https://www.facebook.com/Kate.Sophie.Sofia.Blogs/

So, maybe this will make them seem special? I thought they were fine for a dress with a lot of detail. They are feminine without being a distraction. Easy to pack as well. Pearls and diamonds work well together IMO.

They are lovely. I love pearls. Very sweet of the Queen to loan them to Sophy and Kate.

Agreed. I'm off topic, Dman, but I do think Anna is completely amazing,

I agree with the court jeweller's article that the brooch is oddly placed. Choice of earrings odd as well, simple diamonds would have done it better.

Where should the brooch be place? I am at loss with jewels's position. Anyway, I don't like the pendants. They simply ugly. I agree that simple diamonds studs would have been fine.

A jeweller in Langley has a personal connection to a historic diamond maple leaf brooch that the Duchess of Cambridge is wearing on part of her visit to B.C.: It was made by his father before the Second World War.

“It gives me a great feeling of satisfaction,” said Joe Histed, 77, a semi-retired jeweller at J.W. Histed Diamonds Ltd., in Vancouver. “It’s something my father made and it was passed down and down through royalty.”

Possibly in her hair?
That would look quite pretty, I think.

or her waist - maybe at the end of the draping from her left shoulder to where it hits her waist - that would have been a very 50s style.

but seriously splitting hairs - it is a lovely look. and I am sure her glamsquad was doing the same thing we are doing now - trying all the various options.

Though I love the dress, I am not a fan of the earrings, and agree the brooch placement is off.

For once I am so glad there is no necklace. Less is definitely more here and highlights the asymmetrical design of the top of the dress. I like the brooch pinned here - okay perhaps a little higher might have sharpened the effect. ( it would have certainly been hidden had she worn it at the waist as Kate has a horrible habit of rigidly holding her hands across her front, with a clutch bag.)

Ah, got it. I just thought that maybe the brooch had to be positioned in a standard place, such as right or left, for default.

I keep waiting for an appearance of the polar bear brooch she received on her last trip - but it was gifted in a different provence of Canada i really hope we don't have to wait until they return to Yellowknife to see it being worn.

Yes it does look odd but it was great to see the Duchess wearing the diamond maple leaf brooch.
