After wrapping up the slate of engagements in New Delhi on April 12, William and Kate will travel to Kaziranga National Park. There they'll end the evening by watching a series of musical and dance performances around a campfire. The following morning, they'll take an open-air drive through the park. Both of these engagements sound similar to their 2014 visit to Uluru in Australia, when Kate wore her Catherine Zoraida Double Leaf Earrings. She also donned a necklace and bracelet, both gifts from local people. I expect that we'll see Kate wear any pieces she may be given while on this tour, too.
Before leaving Kaziranga, William and Kate will also visit a wildlife conservation center and clinic and discovery center built by Elephant Family, a charity founded by Mark Shand, the late brother of the Duchess of Cornwall. I have a feeling Kate will wear the same jewelry throughout the day on April 13.

For a similar reception during the Australian tour, Kate wore a pair of earrings featuring both clusters and baguettes. It's been speculated that the earrings (and a coordinating bracelet) were a wedding gift from Prince Charles. This reception seems like a good opportunity for something slightly sparklier -- but not overly grand -- to emerge from Kate's jewelry box.

With Diana so much in everyone's mind during this final tour event, I'd guess that we'll see lots of very deliberate shots of Kate's (and Diana's) famous engagement ring. It'll be interesting to see if there are any other purposeful Diana references in Kate's jewelry or clothes. (Not that it matters -- the press will find them regardless!)
Which pieces of jewelry are you hoping to see Kate wear on the upcoming tour?
