Pearls are having a serious fashion moment right now, so it's no surprise that Kate Middleton's pearl earrings are taking the spotlight. Shrugging off any granny connotations, nowadays they're the gem that everyone wants to be seen wearing. 


Mention Duchess Catherine's jewelry and automatically her iconic sapphire-and-diamond engagement ring springs to mind—a piece from the late Princess Diana's personal collection. But it's Kate Middleton's pearl earrings, one of the best jewelry gifts we could ever hope to receive, that have caught the eye of fashion editors around the world. 

Woman&home can reveal that the exact pair the Duchess of Cambridge has been spotted wearing is by British jewelry designer Annoushka. She has been spotted wearing the 18ct Gold Brown Diamond Baroque Pearl Earrings for some of the most special moments in her life, including the first official photographs of Prince George, and we've spotted them more and more over the years.

Practical yet timeless and chic, they combine 18ct yellow gold hoop earrings, set with 26 sparkling brown diamonds, with detachable freshwater pearls.

And Duchess has proven you can dress the earrings up or down. Kate has worn the pearl earrings for several official photographs and public engagements, but has also teamed them with jeans in the past.

The earrings cost $1245, but it's possible to shop the pearl drops alone to add to an existing pair of hoops at a third of the price.
