Kate Middleton wears Bahrain Pearl Drop earrings
London : Kate Middleton has once again proved she knows exactly how to rock jewellery fit for a literal queen. The mother of three was photographed heading to church on Sunday during her family’s visit to Queen Elizabeth‘s summer retreat in Scotland, Balmoral Castle, People.com reported.
“Kate rode in the backseat of a car next to the 92-year-old monarch herself and wore earrings straight from her grandmother-in-law’s jewellery box: the Bahrain Pearl Drop Earrings. “According to Her Majesty’s Jewel Vault, the earrings were made from a shell containing seven pearls gifted to Queen Elizabeth from the ruler of Bahrain for her wedding in 1947. “The earrings contain a large round diamond with a smaller circle diamond hanging below it. Three baguette diamonds hang from there, with three more small diamonds making way to the dangling pearl.
“Prince William‘s grandmother is more than generous in lending pieces from her jewelry vault to her relatives for special occasions. As Kate walked onto the steps of the Lindo Wing outside St. Mary’s Hospital to introduce her newborn son, Prince Louis to the world, she paid homage to the Queen by wearing another pair of diamond and pearl drop earrings,” the website said. The simpler earrings have proved to be one of Kate’s favorites. She has worn them on several occasions, including during a 2016 visit to the Mauritshuis gallery in Holland, where she viewed the iconic painting “Girl with a Pearl Earring.”
