The Duchess of Cambridge hosted SportsAid's 40th anniversary dinner at Kensington Palace on Thursday, and she brought out a new pair of earrings for the occasion.


Here's a closer look at the large, gem-studded hoop earrings. They've been identified (by various people, and I tend to agree) as Cartier's Trinity Tri-Gold Hoop Earrings. The earrings feature white, yellow, and rose gold hoops studded with diamonds.

Kate has another diamond-studded Trinity item from Cartier: the pendant necklace that she debuted at a photography exhibition related to the London Olympics in July 2012. It's possible that the necklace and earrings are companion pieces. (I think Kate's doing a thing here with the Trinity rings of the jewels and the Olympic rings.)


Here's a look at Kate's full ensemble. Her royal blue evening gown is by Roland Mouret.
