Kate Middleton wore 40 pairs of earrings in 2023 – ranging from an £8 Accessorize design to £23,000 Asprey London earrings

The Princess of Wales is often dubbed one of the best dressed royals, thanks to her stellar accessorising.

Over the course of 2023, Kate Middleton, 41, showcased a stunning collection of sparkling jewellery that featured 43 pairs of earrings costing more than £62,500.

The mother-of-three’s diverse selection ranged from £8 Accessorize pearl disc earrings to the extravagant Asprey London daisy heritage earrings, costing £23,000

She also showcased Princess Diana‘s exquisite cabochon sapphire and diamond earrings, the late Queen Elizabeth’s Bahrain pearl and diamond drop earrings, and The Queen Mother‘s sapphire and diamond earrings.

The royal’s spectacular selection reflected her penchant for wearing both affordable and high-end brands, along with a commitment to recycling favourite pieces.

Kate is a loyal follower of British jeweller Kiki McDonough, based in Sloane Square, London.

Over the past year, she has showcased six pairs of earrings from the brand, including the Lola topaz hoops (£3,500), Lauren pave diamond heart earrings (£2,300) and citrine cushion drop earrings (£1,600), which she debuted at the Cheltenham Festival in 2013.

Kate holds a special fondness for the latter, owning three further variations in white topaz, pink morganite and green amethyst.

Each dazzling design is available with 18ct gold or white gold and diamond hoops. Alternatively, the hoops and cushion drops can be purchased separately, providing the flexibility to mix and match as desired.

The Princess also wore three pairs of earrings by Shyla London, a contemporary label that utilises natural gemstones and ethically sourced or recycled metals.

When launching her Shaping Us campaign in January, Kate accessorised her Victoria Beckham dress with the Biaritz Squiggle earrings (£72), which are handmade from multiple layers of gold-plated silver.

She also favoured the Rosalia earrings (£70) and chunky knot baroque pearl earrings (£72), which she wore on five occasions, including the Shaping Us National Symposium reception.

Much like her sister-in-law, Alizée Thevenet, the royal is an avid follower of French label Sézane and displayed three pairs of earrings, along with two bracelets, from the brand in 2023.

Sézane is a preferred choice for Kate when it comes to statement earrings.

The Princess has donned seven pairs so far, as well as various items of clothing.

Visiting The Rectory in Birmingham, with Prince William, Kate opted for a Karen Millen trench dress, paired with her beloved Sezane Dina earrings, which are thought to have been gifted to her by her husband on Christmas Day 2022.

Later that month, she wore the Bruna design for a trip to The Baby Bank in Windsor.

In June, Kate stunned in a striking scarlet look for day four of Royal Ascot. She elevated her ensemble with a new addition to her collection: the Sézane Esme earrings, priced at £102.

While the Princess showcased plenty of high-end jewellery, she also supported several high street brands, such as Accessorize, J.Crew, Orelia and Zara.

Kate notably recycled her £8 Accessorize pearl and disc earrings for an engagement at Landau Forte College in Derby.

And she reached for the budget-friendly earrings once again during a trip to the Brecon Beacons National Park in Merthyr Tydfil, Wales, in April.

In May, Kate embraced spring chic in an emerald Suzannah London Flippy Wiggle dress, expertly styled with another Accessorize design, featuring hammered gold drops and green gems.

However, the royal’s most noteworthy selection was arguably Zara’s golden cascading floral earrings. She flawlessly paired the attention-grabbing design with an upcycled Alexander McQueen gown at the 2023 BAFTAs.

The Princess has long been a fan of the high street brand, and often steps out in pieces from the Spanish retailer for royal events.

During a visit to Maidenhead Rugby Club in May, Kate shared a sweet moment with Sarah Renton, who presented her with a pair of earrings that had been designed in memory of her daughter, Issy Phipps – a budding rugby player who took her own life at the age of 17 after struggling with depression.

Kate later wore the £25.50 Issy star earrings on World Mental Health Day in October.
