Meghan Markle’s jewelry: 10 things you never noticed about
10 Things You Never Noticed About Meghan Markle’s Delicate Jewelry
The Duchess of Cambridge of course received Princess Diana's sapphire cluster back in 2011, but Prince Harry designed a ring for his bride with an equal amount of sentimental value. He sourced the center stone from Botswana — where they visitedearly in their relationship— and the two additional diamonds came from his mother's collection. Altogether the ring is about 6.5 carats,Moneyestimates. The center gem on Kate's is about 12 carats alone — not to mention the 14 other diamonds. Given their royal associations, however, experts value both pieces as "priceless."
Prince Harry told BBC that he selected yellow gold for Meghan's engagement ring because it's "her favorite," and based on what his bride has worn in public recently, he's right on the money. She wore this collection of glimmering bangles at a concert for the Queen's 92nd birthday in April.
The double-diamond white gold earrings came from Birks, which is the "a Canadian store equivalent of Tiffany’s," Kay says. It's the same brand that supplied the opal earrings she wore at her engagement announcement.
The trendy jacket style has the second gem suspended from the earring back instead of the front. Altogether they contain 1.39 carats of diamonds and cost approximately ,000. Not a bad way to meet the entire extended royal family!
Meghan Markle shook hands with people at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in April wearing thin bands on nearly every finger, including her thumb. The move was "unusual for a British royal to do," Kay says, but she'd done it before on a trip to Scotland. (Pssst: That gorgeous open bracelet from Tai is only .)
Kate Middleton wore new Robinson Pelham pendants given to her by her parents on her wedding day, but Meghan reached for a pair of Cartier studs she'd previously debuted at an Invictus Games event just the month before. According to the jeweler, the design of the collection "is a modern allegory of seduction featuring harmonious, interlacing curves that play with light and shadow." Ooh la la!
With all eyes on Queen Mary's bandeau tiara, it was easy to miss the dazzling tennis bracelet Meghan wore on her right wrist. The Cartier bangle apparently featured 104 brilliant-cut diamonds and another 52 baguette-cut diamonds totaling 5.6 carats. You can still buy one — but you'll have to cough up 5,000. Later that night, she wore a pair of earrings from the same Reflection de Cartier collection worth ,000 (plus tax, mind you).
Meghan honored generations of royal brides before her by wearing a wedding ring made of extremely rare Welsh gold. The Queen Mother started the trend back in 1923, and Queen Elizabeth, Princess Margaret, Princess Anne, Diana, Princess of Wales, and the Duchess of Cambridge all received bands of the same metal.
