Meghan Markle wears a pair of earrings with synthetic diamonds. And in Britain the debate starts ♦ ︎
The Duchess of Sussex continues to be an influencer in the field of jewelry. What Meghan Markle wears has immediatly a reflection on sales, not least because Prince Harry’s bride often chooses jewelry for everyone.
Now, however, another type of choice may also weigh: that relating to synthetic diamonds.
Meghan Markle, in fact, during her first visit as Royal Patron for SmartWorks (a charity that helps unemployed and vulnerable women), what has been described as her “most daring to date” jewel, that is a pair of earrings with three drops. The jewelry brand is Kimai, specialized in ethical jewelry: the earrings were made of 18 carat gold and the diamonds are obtained in the laboratory and cost only 315 pounds. A fact that surprised many: are synthetic diamonds quite “noble”? It seems so. And perhaps this time the choice of Meghan Markle will push many women to opt for this type of stone. The choice has already opened a debate in the British press and on the options represented by ethical jewels. On the other hand, the largest natural diamond company, De Beers, announced long ago the opening of a laboratory for the production of synthetic diamonds.
From her engagement with Prince Harry the Duchess of Sussex has always been wearing the latest jewelry trends, from brands like Birks, Missoma and Shaun Leane. And all have seen an increase in sales thanks to the young new member of the royal family.
