From the moment it was announced that she was dating Prince Harry, the world has been fixated on everything that Meghan Markle does. Now married, the Duchess of Sussex remains a permanent fixture in the public eye, often celebrated for her incredible style and grace. Being a royal also has its perks, as she has access to some of the most beautiful pieces of jewelry imaginable – many of which have been generously gifted to her. We’re taking a look at Meghan Markle’s best jewelry since the wedding.
Where else would we start than with the diamond engagement ring that signifies the beginning of their fairytale romance. Harry proposed to Megan in November 2017 with a custom-made ring he designed with jeweler Cleave & Company. The ring features a cushion-cut center stone, from Botswana, flanked by two smaller round-cut diamonds – from Princess Diana’s personal collection. Originally, the ring was set in yellow gold, but the band was updated recently to include a micro pavé design.

The next piece of jewelry close to the Duchess’s heart is her simple gold wedding band. There is a longstanding royal tradition that the couples’ wedding bands are made from gold mined from the Clogau St. David's gold mine in Wales, and she happily kept with this tradition.
Recently, eagle-eyed fans noticed that Megan has added another ring to her wedding finger. A simple diamond eternity ring now sits beneath her wedding band, and it’s believed that Harry gifted it to her either in honor of the birth of their first child, Archie, or that it’s to mark their first wedding anniversary.

Previously owned by Harry’s mother, Princess Diana, the striking gold bracelet features two blue stones and is set is a half-cuff style. The Duchess has worn this a number of times, and has clearly become one of her favorite pieces of jewelry.
Also a gift from Harry that his mother used to own, Meghan has been seen wearing a pair of gold and diamond butterfly-shaped earrings to a number of different events recently.
You may not be able to have the Duchess’s earrings, but you can emulate her style with a pair of Shimansky’s beautiful earrings.
Aquamarine Cocktail Ring
Aside from the sapphire engagement ring she wore, which now belongs to Kate Middleton, Princess Diana’s aquamarine cocktail ring is likely one of the world’s most recognized pieces of jewelry – and it has now been gifted to Meghan. The Duchess famously wore it on the night of her wedding reception but has worn it many times since then.

As is customary when a woman is baptized and confirmed, Harry gifted Meghan with a fine diamond cross bracelet when she was confirmed before their wedding last year. Being the trendsetter, she is, she’s paired the bracelet with a 24K white gold bar bracelet.
Pearl and Diamond Earrings
To celebrate their first outing as a married couple, the Queen gave the Duchess a pair of diamond and pearl drop earrings. Rumored to have been chosen as Queen Elizabeth has a love for pearls herself, she also has a matching pair.
Despite the endless choice of royal jewels, she has access to, the Duchess is quite partial to a mismatched ring stack. She’s been seen mixing high end diamonds with simpler, more affordable pieces in a very cool, mismatched way.
With jewels like these, it’s clear that Meghan Markle might be one of the luckiest women in the world. And while you might not be able to own the Crown Jewels, you too can create a personal, timeless and beautiful jewelry collection with Shimansky’s wide selection.
