Meghan Markle Sparkles in Cartier


Royal bride-to-be Meghan Markle has been in the spotlight quite a bit over the last week, and for three of her recent appearances, she's worn the same pair of earrings: new glittering diamond studs from Cartier.

On Saturday, Meghan debuted the Galanterie de Cartier earrings at the Invictus Games Reception at Australia House.

Here's a closer look at the earrings from Cartier's website. The firm describes the earrings as "18K white gold, each set with a brilliant-cut diamond available in 0.18 to 0.22 carats and 0.40 to 0.44 carats, and paved with brilliant-cut diamonds."

Meghan wore the earrings again on Monday for a 25th anniversary memorial service celebrating the life and legacy of Stephen Lawrence at St Martin-in-the-Fields in London. The earrings provide a bit of additional sparkle, but they're subtle enough to be worn at an important memorial service like this one. On this occasion, though, the earrings look to be fairly heavy, pulling a bit on Meghan's lobes -- perhaps a more substantial earring back would help them sit better on her ear.

This morning, Meghan wore the earrings for a third time. This time, the occasion was the Anzac Day Service of Commemoration and Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey, which commemorates Australian and New Zealand casualties and veterans of conflicts and marks the anniversary of the landings in the Dardanelles during the Gallopoli campaign of World War I.
