The Duchess has worn the earrings twice since. First, in February 2021 during a video chat with teachers during Children’s Mental Health Week and then a month later in March for a Zoom meeting with Jasmine Harrison, the youngest women to solo row the Atlantic (this chat was to mark International Women’s Day).
About Kate’s pink and gold earrings:
The striking pink and gold earrings feature a hand-cut Rhodochrosite gemstone set in 18ct gold vermeil on Sterling silver suspended from a hoop. The gold vermeil surrounding the gemstone has a rough, organic texture while a repeating pyramid pattern decorates the hoops. The natural pink rhodochrosite stone is a healing crystal that radiates love, compassion and all-around good vibes according to the designer.

Kate Middleton wearing Missoma:
Kate owns at least one other pair of Missoma earrings. She sported a pair of the brand’s Zenyu Chandelier Hoops during the 2019 Tour of Pakistan. At the time of writing (April 2021), the earrings remain available for purchase, should you wish to buy them.
Missoma is a London-based jewellery brand founded by Marisa Horden, her mother Michele and sister Sophie. The brand name combines letters from all three ladies’ names: Michele, Sophie, Marisa.
In an interview with Coveteur, Marisa describes the jewellery as “demi-fine”. She credits the business as being “one of the first” to offer this type of jewellery. The Creative Director says the label is ideal for people who are looking for “something in between cheap, fashion jewellery and fine jewellery that [is] too expensive”.
Kate isn’t the only high profile person to have worn Missoma jewellery! Other celebrity fans of the brand include Cindy Crawford, Margot Robbie and the Duchess of Sussex.
