The Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton) owns a pair of Kiki McDonough Grace earrings. She’s worn the white topaz and diamond earrings on a regular basis since joining the Royal Family in 2011. Pictured below, Kate attending the Order of the Garter service at Windsor Castle in 2011.
These earrings are simple yet striking. According to Kiki McDonough, the Grace style are one of her most popular designs.
Here’s how Kiki describes the Grace earrings on her website:
“These simple and delicate earrings can be worn every day. Each earring features a round white topaz gemstone surrounded by small diamonds set in 18ct gold and can be paired with our matching Grace pendants and rings.”
The earrings are 9mm in diameter.

Kate Middleton wearing Kiki McDonough:
In 2014, Kiki McDonough spoke to the Daily Mail Online Kate wearing her earrings. Here’s an excerpt:
‘She wears my pieces as they should be worn. She obviously enjoys wearing colour on her ears as opposed to pearls and diamonds all the time.’[Kate] is a busy working mother like me, and I design jewellery that goes with that lifestyle. My designs have always reflected the way we live now, dashing from work to an event.‘I will quite often keep the same pair of earrings on for a week and they go with me wherever I am going (from the theatre to a football match) and that seems to be something that my clients appreciate.’
This is why the Grace earrings are the so popular – because they’re so versatile. Like Kate and Kiki, women can wear them from desk to dinner and beyond.
