We must have been very good magpies this year, because we've got a second new pair of earrings from the Duchess today. This time, they're from an Indian designer: lapis and diamond earrings from Amrapali Jewels. The pair is made of two faceted lapis drops -- one square-shaped, one oval -- bordered by diamonds.
