"Meghan always exudes ease and elegance, refinement and a freshness in everything she steps out in — I loved what she wore!," Smith exclaims.

Vargas Goteo's works on the specific collections in order to help promote the "conversation about conservation." Smith reflects the importance of Markle wearing the pieces saying:

"I'm so proud that with gained visibility, comes increased support of the conservation organizations we support."

The jewellery designer also reveals that she does not know where Markle purchased the rings from and was surprised to see her wearing their collection because she did not source it from them.

It is believed she bought the items through her own personal means and was not given by the organization.
