William and Kate arrived in Paris in the afternoon, having left directly after distributing shamrocks to the Irish Guards in the morning. Kate wore the same Catherine Walker coat and jewelry as she did in Hounslow earlier in the day, although she removed the shamrock brooch from her coat. (See her St. Patrick's Day jewels over here.)

She wears the same Monica Vinader Siren Wire Earrings in green onyx that she wore in the morning. (More on these earrings over here.)

You can see where the brooch was previously pinned to the coat.

The faux pearl and crystal jewels are by Balenciaga. She debuted the "Eugenia" earrings previously at Trooping the Colour 2016. (See more on her jewels from that event over here.)

Today's reception showed that the set includes at least two other pieces: a necklace and a ring.
