The Duchess of Cambridge looked absolutely stunning at the recent christening of her third child, Prince Louis, in an elegant dress by Alexander McQueen and cream hat by Jane Taylor. The royal accessorised with the most beautiful floral pearl earrings, which reminded us of the Queen's own Floret Earrings, gifted to her by Queen Mary. We've been dying to know where Kate's earrings are from, and now we have the answer! The Duchess wore Cavalfiore Pear Studs by British jewellery designer Cassandra Goad. The earrings have quite a price tag too, available to order from £4,360. They are definitely on our wish list.
The earrings are absolutely divine. On closer look, each pearl features its own small diamond in the centre surrounded by gold. The designer's website reveals the earrings are: "Cavolfiore studs in 18ct yellow gold and set with seven pearls set with diamonds (0.3cts). Inspired by the clusters of young flower stalks of the cauliflower (cavolfiore) in the market. From the Journey to Sicily."

Cassandra Goad is a popular jeweller on London's exclusive Sloane Street and her jewellery is worn by everyone from Lord Mayors to royalty.
Kate looked beautiful in the intricate earrings, which coordinated perfectly with her dress and hat. It is certainly possible that she paid tribute to the Queen with her jewellery choice on the special occasion.
The Queen often wears her Queen Mary's Floret Earrings on special occasions; the studs were gifted to Queen Mary as a wedding gift from Sir William Mackinnon in 1893, and subsequently inherited by the monarch following her death in 1953.
