Meghan Markle wore $ 384,000 worth of jewelry for the cover of Time magazine. She and Prince Harry were nominated by the famous publication in the top 100 most influential people in the world in 2021
Although Prince Harry and the former Duchess of Sussex have resigned as senior members of the British Royal House, they are in the center of attention. Meghan and Harry were praised by Time magazine for their work and, implicitly, for "their compassion for people I don't know."
The photos with Meghan and Harry were taken by photographer Pari Dukovic, at their luxury villa in Montecito.
The cover image is taken in the yard, and the trees can be seen in the background, while Meghan is dressed in white and Harry in black. In another photo, the couple posed near a window, and Harry is wearing a suit while Meghan chose a green suitcase and gray pants.
Meghan Markle Wore $ 384,000 Jewelry
Journalists from the Daily Mail analyzed the jewelry that Meghan Markle wore recently for the photoshoot and concluded that the pieces are worth a total of 384,000 dollars.
Obviously, the accessories are of sentimental importance to Prince Harry's wife. Meghan chose to wear a watch made by the famous house of Cartier ($ 23,000), a pink diamond ring ($ 1,050) and a $ 525 ring, a bracelet ($ 6,900), and her astonishing diamond engagement ring ($ 350,000).
The engagement ring, the most expensive piece, has a special meaning. The jewel was created from a sketch made by Prince Harry himself and includes two diamonds that belonged to his mother, Princess Diana - the late "Queen of Hearts", and a central diamond brought from Botswana. The jewelry is made out of shiny yellow gold.
The Interesting Story Behind the $ 525 Ring
The piece is called Duet Pinky Ring and is made by the jewelry brand Shiffon. And it has a story behind it.
According to Insider, Shiffon Co. was founded by 24-year-old Shilpa Yarlagadda with the intention of giving "women access to venture capital and opportunities beyond the capital." Half of the company's profits go to the Startup Girl Foundation, a non-profit founded by the company that supports female owned-businesses.
Shilpa Yarlagadda has become a massive success, with public figures like Serena Williams, Michelle Obama, Shailene Woodley, and Emma Watson all sporting Shiffon Co. jewelry in recent years.
The gold diamond ring chosen by Meghan Markle for the cover of Time Magazine is one of the brand's most popular jewelry pieces and the adjustable band forms a swirling shape with a diamond in the center of the band.
The ring symbolizes women supporting women through a "pinky promise," according to the brand's official website.
