Carousel Jewels, which is a London-based brand, describes the sold-out earrings as lightweight enough for everyday wear.
Her earrings, which are currently sold out online, are described online as aquamarine and pearl drop earrings.
The handcrafted design, which is crafted from sterling silver with 22k gold plating, is lightweight enough for everyday wear.
According to jewelry brand Carousel Jewels, whose designs have been spotted on characters from the Netflix series Bridgerton, the centerpiece of the earrings, aquamarine, is the birthstone for march.
The society says the stone was ‘supposed to protect sailors, as well as guarantee a safe voyage”.
He adds, “The serene blue or blue-green color of aquamarine is believed to cool the temperament, allowing the wearer to remain calm and balanced.”
The blue-green color of the stones coordinated perfectly with the rest of Kate’s outfit.

Kate’s classic outfit featured an all-green color scheme, matching her blue-green aquamarine earrings to her tailored dress, as well as her pumps and fascinator
This included a mint green bespoke dress, made by her private seamstress, with puff sleeves and a high neckline. She paired it with green heeled pumps and a small clutch.
She finished her look with the dramatic fascinator, featuring an asymmetrical rim and a giant rose detail on one side. At times, she was also spotted holding a cream umbrella to shield herself from the drizzle.
Her makeup for the day featured a natural base, as well as her dark eyeliner, with a pink lip.
She let her dangling earrings take center stage, keeping the rest of her jewelery to a minimum, sporting just her sapphire and diamond engagement ring and Welsh gold wedding band.
During the event, Kate was seen talking to a number of guests, including Holocaust survivor Manfred Goldberg, 92, whom she has met twice before, most recently in him speaking via video call last year to mark Holocaust Memorial Day.
