Meghan Markle opted for simple accessories during her wedding day, but it doesn’t mean that they weren’t made by luxurious brands like Cartier.
The former Suits actress embodied timelessness during the royal wedding. Aside from the stunning gowns she wore, people have also been interested with the Duchess of Sussex’s jewelry pieces.
During the afternoon reception, Markle had the chance to change into her second outfit, which was a Stella McCartney piece.
To go with the gown, the Duchess put on a pair of 18-karat white gold Cartier chandelier earrings. As shown on the brand’s website, the earrings cost about $68,000.
Another jewelry piece she wore was to honor her new husband, Prince Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana.

As confirmed by People, Markle wore Princess Diana’s aquamarine ring. The People’s Princess wore the ring in 1997 to an auction of her clothes at Christie’s.
At the wedding ceremony, Markle also wore minimal jewelry, which included a pair of earrings and a bracelet both by Cartier.
The earrings were a pair of simple white gold ones embellished with diamond studs and the bracelet, worn on her right arm, was a 10.11-karat piece that had 150 individual diamonds. The bracelet costs a raging $155,000.
For their wedding bands, Prince Harry and Markle broke royal tradition as it had been initially expected that both bands were going to be made from a piece of Welsh gold. The Royal Family had been using the gold since 1923 for the Queen Mother’s wedding.
Markle’s ring was made using the Welsh gold, as it had been a gift from Queen Elizabeth, but Prince Harry’s wedding band was a platinum one with a textured finish.
As shared by the official website of the royal wedding, both rings were made by London’s Cleave and Company, the same makers of Markle’s engagement ring.
