Not a fan of the earrings. They look too big. Beautiful stones, and happy she had her hair back to show them off, but still just seems too big in proportion. The bracelet is stunning.

I personally don't like the earrings I think they're far too big and don't fit the outfit well.

Royal Tour of India and Bhutan: Oval Maidan and Banganga Water Tank | The Court Jeweller

More on her her £8 Accessorise earrings from this afternoon's cricket game in Mumbai. Nicely match her casual look for the day (side note she is wearing Monsoon wedges and her earrings are by its sister company Accessorise)

I quite like the earrings myself, although I don't think we are used to seeing her wearing large earrings like that.

A pair of diamond a sapphire earnings would have looked good for the outfit though!

Like I said in her fashion thread; these earrings wouldn't look out of place in Queen Máxima's collection, which is a compliment.

My only complaint with it is that the rim (?) of the earrings seem to be copper/gold plated and the beading on her dress is silver. Jewelry and a dress should compliment eachother, not contradict one another.

I still think her mother-in-law's sapphire and diamond jewels would've complimented her evening dress beautifully.

The dress is FAR too intricate for flashy jewellery. Diamonds would've been way, way over the top. She made the right choice, the star of the show is the dress, as it should be considering it's been specially embroidered in India for her.

I also think Lapis a good choice for the venue. I reach for my Lapis all the time. It dresses up and down equally well. Plus the stone has such a long history.

I like the earrings but too heavy for the dress.

Basically, her outfits and jewels were meant to be a compliment to India, honouring Indian style, patterns, craftsmanship. These earrings were chosen because they are of contemporary Indian making. It's giving a diplomatic message that no old family heirloom could convey, imho.

Royal Tour of India and Bhutan: Charity Gala in Mumbai | The Court Jeweller

I wonder where these maybe a gift at the start of the tour - maybe they asked what Kate would like and KP suggested a piece of Indian jewellery to match her gown?

I'm afraid I can't agree, Maxima has worn some truly awful jewellery.

Not a fan of the blue earrings. Too big and too much. Some people can pull them off. Maxima (I agree she has some misses often enough as well) can pull the big costume pieces off. On Kate they look odd IMO.

I like the day time ones much better though they remind me a bit of a dream catcher. They suit the casual outfit and look nice on her.

In my opinion, the earrings worn for the gala were really beautiful and, for once, I think it was nice to see Kate display more showy jewellery.

I agree. The lapis and diamond earrings compliment the dress and are a nod to the host nation.

I don't mind the earrings and its always nice to see the duchess trying new pieces out and I think they compliment her outfit very well.
