i don't mind modern jewellery but if you gonna pay tens of thousands on modern pieces then choose ones that are unique like some of jar , Ole Lynggaard... etc designs don't buy a £7,500 earrings that i wouldn't difference it from a £64.56 fake one , the reason i mentioned Mary's antique tiara/necklace is that if i was asked to give a price for it i would give it between £30,000 - £40,000 but if i was asked to give a price for the kiki's earrings i would say £50 max , i would rather that she wear fake ones insted of tens of thousands worth earrings that looks like cheap fake one's .
compare the modern pieces that maxima and mary bought and the kiki macdonald one's and u know what i mean .
I agree! But she likes what she likes so gotta accept that oogle at Maxima like me lol!

There are many reasons to collect large stones.
The foremost is that they become increasingly difficult to obtain and will appreciate in value, both personal and monetary.
Beyond that - the through light makes the gem color on large stones more vibrant - especially when the stone color is as saturated as these were.
Finally - It's always been my hope that Catherine expands her large semi-precious stone collection to include necklaces and brooches. Because, well, that would be fun. Sets of the modern stones would be a blast and she has many years to collect them/be given them!

I am not fond of some of Kate's choices of jewelry either. The Kiki McDonald collection look like pieces from a fashion jewelry line from a department store.

Oh I like the Kiki McDonough earrings- I think they're a good, modern look for Kate and I like that she wears them (though of course, I prefer when she wears stuff from the royal collections)

I agree. Those McDonough earrings are perfect for everyday or casual events. Kate has worn some major pieces from the royal collection when the occasion warranted. Plus, she's borrowed some of HM's personal jewels (the engagement bracelet comes to mind). She's young and a lot of those royal pieces are not appropriate for a young woman. She has plenty of time in the future to wear all those whopping jewels in the royal collection and look like a Christmas tree.

So, Trooping of the Colour, time to push the boat out, and did she what! I love those gorgeous diamond evening earrings and to be honest her ensemble made such a statement I thought the addition of 'HM The Queen Diamond Pendant Earrings' was more than a little over the top, bragging in fact. They did not suit her dress or hat which is not that surprising, they are used to being paired with diamond tiaras rather than little pink hats.

I quite agree with you, the diamond earrings are far too brash for the day! Pearls would have been perfect.

Nothing brash as far as I am concerned. I thought they teamed great with the outfit.

The earrings were a great touch of glamour.

I agree. Especially not since she only wore the earrings. If she wore them with the Nizam necklace, then yes. It would be a bit show off. But these are just some large dressed up earrings. Many of us wear them when dressing up (earrings are always my go to), hers just happen to be diamond. I love her taking a page out of the queen mothers book and wearing some big earrings in daytime. Larger earrings (day or night) is a very youthful look (not as in trying to look young, more a "of her generation"-thing) so it makes perfect sense for her to do a royal version of that. I love them and think they make the whole look!

Agreed. I think the earrings paired beautifully with her hair and dress.

Looks great. It's not like she wore the Grenville Chandeliers to yoga class.

For me they work because though the actual earrings are a bit bigger, the stones themselves are small. They aren't big and flash like an evening look.

As it was a celebration of the Queen's birthday, perhaps, like a lot of people do, Kate wore those earrings because they're part of a special bond between the Queen and Kate. Perhaps in choosing to wear them, it wasn't a choice because of what she was wearing or the time of the day but because of the occasion.

That's my take on it anyways.

Camilla and Autumn both wore pearls...and while they would of gone well with Kate's look, so did the diamonds.

Normally folks complain because she doesn't wear enough bling....I think it's quite nice she wore the Queen's earrings on the day celebrating her birth.

I'm okay with Catherine wearing diamonds anytime. The more, the better.

I thought the earrings were perfectly fine, if a little out of the norm that Catherine has set herself.

I guess when Maxima wears OTT jewellery for day occasions, it is fine, but when Catherine does, it is deemed inappropriate.
I think she is damned if she does, and damned if she does not!
