“Other jewels are worn pre-6pm,” Meier told news.com.au, which explains why the duo are normally only seen sporting stones like pearls and topaz, or minimalist precious metal pieces during the day as well as their engagement rings.
The Duchesses are meant to avoid looking "flashy" before the evening time, for some reason.
“Before 6pm, you’ll see metallics, gemstones, pearls, sapphires," explains Meier.

Although the gems were sold separately, the same buyer purchased both pieces – the blue rock for over $42 million and the pink for over $15 million.
According to Sotheby's, The 14.54-carat blue Apollo is said to be the "largest internally flawless fancy vivid blue diamond ever to be offered at auction." The rock earned a rare grading of 11b, which accounts for only 1 percent of diamonds in the world.
Meanwhile, the more affordable (HA) 16-carat Artemis pink was classified as an 11a diamond, "the most chemically pure" of its kind.
Following the sale of the two stunning earrings, David Bennett, worldwide chairman of Sotheby’s International Jewelry Division and chairman of Switzerland, said: “I am delighted that the stones will remain together as earrings.”
The buyer, who forked out a serious fortune for these glitzy stones, has decided to remain anonymous.
While we can appreciate that these earrings are fabulous, there are definitely other ways we would go about spending €51 million.
We would literally have our own plane and island for that price – just saying.
Yesterday the world celebrated as Queen B turned 35 but while most of us confined our celebrations to binging on Lemonade and sharing Beyoncé GIFs with our mates, Kelly Rowland surprised her BFF with a very special gift.
In a bid to prolong Bey’s birthday weekend, the singer’s former bandmate and long-time friend decided to join her in Philadelphia for the Made in America festival and Kelly did not arrive to the party empty handed.
In an interview with E! News the X Factor judge revealed that she would be gifting the Sorry singer with diamonds to mark the occasion.
She said: “We are all going to be celebrating this festival and Beyoncé’s birthday.”
“We are all going to be together. I am getting ready to see her now.”
And when asked what she got the girl who has everything, Kelly replied: “Well, diamonds are a girl’s best friend…I got her diamonds.”
So if you’ve never before thought of sending Ms Rowland a friend request, now would probably be a good time to do it.

A 1,111 carat gem-quality diamond has been unearthed in Botswana by the Lucara Diamond Corporation. This is second in size only to the Cullinan diamond. That would be the diamond cut into the British Crown jewels, just FYI.
In a statement the company said that machines recovered the massive gem in the Karowe mine. So it might not be ready to be wrapped up with a bow and your name on it just yet, but we can still dream.
“The significance of the recovery of a gem-quality stone larger than 1,000 carats, the largest for more than a century and the continued recovery of high-quality stones from the south lobe, cannot be overstated,” William Lamb, CEO of Lucara, said in the statement.
The diamond which measures 65 millimetres by 56 millimetres by 40 millimetres, which is roughly the size of tennis ball is believed the be the second largest ever found.
It was so big that Lucara could not a proper analysis to estimate the price of such a beast because it does not fit in the scanning machine.
Gem Diamonds Ltd. previously held the diamond discovery of the century title with the 603-carat Lesotho Promise. However, this new rock pretty much blew it out of the water.
“It is almost impossible to estimate a value for such an extraordinary stone given that a valuation is highly dependent on the colour, clarity and cutting and polishing characteristics,” Edward Sterck, a London-based analyst at BMO Capital Markets noted.
Lucara did sell a 341.9 carat Type-IIa diamond in July for almost €20 million, or €56,000 a carat, Mr Sterck added.
If you thought that your childhood birthday presents were the business, then you might want to look away now.
A Hong Kong businessman just dropped a record-breaking €45 million on a rare, 12.03-carat blue diamond for his 7-year-old daughter.
That price tag — which is the highest ever for a diamond or gem sold at auction — breaks down to a record-breaking €3.7 million-plus per carat, according to Sotheby's, the auction house behind the sale. So basically, each carat of this blue beauty is worth almost 1,000 times the average amount spent on engagement rings around the world.
The "Blue Moon diamond" was found in a South African mine. It has been graded the highest possible color quality for blue diamonds and deemed internally flawless by the Gemological Institute of America.
This bad boy was up for grabs as part of Sotheby's major jewelry sale in Geneva this week. A definite date in the diary for any jewelry aficionados who have some extra pennies lying around.
The diamond's name comes from the phrase 'once in a blue moon'- but of course.
"This show-stopping blue diamond surely is a once-in-a-lifetime stone," said David Bennett, Sotheby’s worldwide chairman of jewelry, in a statement.
Sotheby's only identified the buyer as a private collector from Hong Kong. But The Guardian and many other media outlets have confirmed that it was purchased by billionaire Joseph Lau.
Now named "The Blue Moon of Josephine," this giant rock isn't the first rare find Lau has gifted young Josephine. Just one day earlier, he reportedly dropped $28.5 million on a pink stone for her that he dubbed "Sweet Josephine."
