The royal family and fashion go hand in hand. From expensive dresses to fancy accessories, every look of the royals gets noticed and appreciated; sometimes, it’s harshly critiqued too. And with so many eyes looking in their direction, it’s only natural that they want to look their best at every public appearance. Perhaps that’s what Meghan Markle was trying to do. Or was she?
Recently Meghan and Harry broke the internet with their appearance on Spotify’s “Stream On” event. Hosted on February 22, 2021, Stream On was a virtual live-streamed event to empower audio creators globally.
It focused on sharing the latest updates on both music and podcasting and was quite a hit. But after the event was over, what was interesting to see was that the media and audience didn’t fail to notice the picturesque pink sapphire ring that the Duchess of Sussex was wearing.
Deets on Harry & Meghan’s Spotify appearance
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s surprise cameo on the Spotify event came soon after announcing their second pregnancy. The revelation that the couple was pregnant again was special for them for many reasons.
For one, after facing the trauma of miscarriage last year, the fact that Meghan was expecting now was something that made the couple beyond happy. Secondly, the timing was so perfect that the duo could choose the exact same date Princess Diana, Harry’s late mother, announced that she was expecting Prince Harry, the second royal prince – 14th February!
Since the pregnancy announcement was kept quite simple, a black and white photograph of the couple accompanied with the news delivered to CNN, this being their first public appearance since then, had to be something out of the ordinary. Enter – the super elegant and precious Pink Sapphire cocktail ring with diamond pavé.
Though Harry and Meghan talked about Archewell Studio’s planned Spotify podcast, no one could help but notice how elegant the Duchess looked in her simple and beautiful avatar. She word a citrus primavera peplum hem dress with minimal jewelry, among which the cocktail ring stood out.
What’s so unique about this ring?
During the filming of the TV show Suits, Meghan (who played a prominent role) lived in Toronto for a while. This was the time when she grew fond of Canadian brands, and since then, she has openly extended her support to them over the years.
This ring too is of Canadian origin, but along with that, the fact that it promotes sustainable fashion (the rose cut pink sapphire is ethically sourced and sits atop a 100% recyclable gold band), which is very close to her heart, is another reason that she chose to flaunt it at such an important public appearance.
Besides the sapphire ring, Meghan owns several other prized jewels. And even though she likes wearing simple and elegant jewelry, she doesn’t shy away from statement pieces every now and then. During several occasions, including her and Harry’s wedding reception, she has worn Princess Diana’s Aquamarine ring.
