Kate wore the earrings again for the diplomatic reception last December, pairing them this time with the Lover's Knot Tiara. By now, the earrings appear to be a firm, long-term jewel loan from the Queen to Kate. To my knowledge, although the earrings belong to the Queen, we've never seen a photo of the Queen wearing them.
