To complete the look, Kate added Cassandra Goad Temple of Heaven earrings. The chandelier style earrings are made of nine carat gold and inspired by the Ming Dynasty who built the Temple of Heaven in about 1530; it was the detail of circles and squares that decorate the roof edge of the temple that inspired the earrings.
