Kate Wears Bahrain Pearl Drop Earrings
Kate Middleton donned Queen Elizabeth’s pearl drop earrings for both the Festival of Remembrance and Remembrance Day services this weekend, adding a subdued touch of mourning jewellery to her ensemble. Although Kate has worn these jewels before, this time it made headlines.
The Bahrain Pearl Drop Earrings, originally presented to Queen Elizabeth II by Prince Philip in 1947 as part of her wedding present, have become a timeless heirloom in the royal family’s collection. These earrings boast two pearls dangling from an elegant strand of diamonds and are rhodium-plated for optimal shine.
These replica bahrain pearl earrings are an exquisite way to pay homage to this time-honored jewel. Each is rhodium-plated for long-lasting shine and comes adorned with an array of cubic zirconia crystals in various shapes and sizes – just like the originals!
Bahrain pearls are a highly-coveted jewel among British royals, particularly Princess Elizabeth. She donned them on many occasions throughout her reign and they remain a favourite of hers to this day!
These pearls, also referred to as’mourning pearls’, have been worn by the royal family at numerous funerals over time. The Duchess of Cambridge donned them for Prince Philip’s 2021 funeral and Queen Elizabeth’s state funeral just a few weeks ago.
Bahrain pearls are believed to represent tears. They are traditionally worn at funerals and often paired with diamonds as a reminder of one’s loss and mourning.
