Kiki is another designer who Kate has worn since before she was married — she wore Kiki's white topaz and diamond studs for a visit to St Andrews, and citrine drops for a lifeboat launch in Anglesey. Kate now has 15 pairs of Kiki McDonough earrings, and has chosen them for the most fancy of occasions, as well as when she's dressed down and casual. Kiki has said of designing versatile pieces for Kate, "My jewelry is very wearable so it is easy for her to put it with jeans, skirts and dresses . . . She is a busy working mother like me, and I design jewelry that goes with that lifestyle. My designs have always reflected the way we live now, dashing from work to an event."
Kate chose a triple whammy from her 'super 7' at her sister Pippa Middleton's wedding in May this year, accessorizing her blush-colored silk McQueen outfit with a matching Jane Taylor cocktail hat and pink morganite Kiki McDonough drops.
