In a few days, Meghan Markle will become a member of the royal family, and her access to impressive pieces of jewelry will skyrocket. Before she takes the plunge, though, let's look back at some of her best pre-wedding jewelry moments!

Meghan tends to favor minimalist jewels now, but five years ago, her jewelry box featured some serious statement earrings. She wore this sparkling pair on two separate occasions in the autumn of 2013, including an appearance at a film festival at Lincoln Center in New York

By the time she accepted Prince Harry's proposal in 2017, however, Meghan's jewelry style had shifted considerable. Her diamond engagement ring reflects her love of delicate, simple gold jewelry made in a classic style

But we do still see her reach for a bit of sparkle now and then, as she did on Christmas Day at Sandringham, when she wore this pair of diamond jacket-style earrings from Birks

To celebrate her new grandmother-in-law's birthday, though, she reached for golden jewels to add contrast to her navy blue ensemble, including a stack of bracelets

She's recently also debuted an impressive pair of diamond stud earrings from Cartier, which has led some to speculate that she may wear something similar for her wedding this weekend

Which jewels from the royal vaults would you like to see Meghan take out for a spin? I'm hoping to see her wear the Persian Turquoise Parure or the Queen's incredible Godman Necklace!
