Despite all the drama, we still love a good dose of royal inspiration when it comes to jewelry—from the best huggie earrings to sustainable jewelry pieces. And Kate Middleton does know how to spot a good chunky gold hoop.

The Duchess of Cambridge loves accessories, but her jewelry isn't just comprised of diamonds and sapphires. She enjoys shopping on the high street too, as shown by her latest online appearance wearing the ideal pair of $22 (£15) gold Orelia earrings.

She was spotted wearing the Orelia Rhodochrosite gold earrings during a virtual call recently and then again during a video message, thanking the charity Time to Change for its role in combating mental health stigmas. Looks like we're not the only ones relying on earrings to look put together on work calls...

Earlier this month, the Duchess made her first in-person appearance of 2021, at a school in east London where she congratulated teachers on their efforts to reopen the school after lockdown restrictions.  

Fans have flocked to get their hands on the sleek and fashionable pair since Kate's school debut. But (just a little style tip) they look just as good layered with other Orelia earpieces. So, instead of piling various sizes in a row, try shaping your ear with beautiful designs. It's a good idea to start with a small huggie near the bottom (check out the best silver huggies for your collection). 

We expect these to sell out fast, much like anything else Kate Middleton wears, but while they are still in stock we recommend adding them to your baskets.
