On the 15th of September 2020, the Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton) debuted a new pair of pink and gold gemstone earrings during a public engagement in London. They’re by Missoma. They’re the brand’s ‘Rhodochrosite Gold Mini Pyramid Charm Hoops’.
About the 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:

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”.
