HARPER’S BAZAAR – Everything you need to know about Meghan Markle’s Eternity Ring
When Prince Harry announced to the world on May 6 that he had become a father, his beaming smile said it all. Not only was he proud of his newborn son, but also his wife of one year. “I’m absolutely over the moon,” he said. But it was his thoughtful tribute away from the cameras that truly expressed his joy—a stunning eternity ring that honored his new family.
After weeks of speculation about a new diamond on Meghan’s wedding finger, BAZAAR.com can reveal that Harry helped create the piece with renowned jeweler Lorraine Schwartz as a gift to mark the couple’s wedding anniversary—and their growing family.
While creating the bespoke conflict-free diamond eternity band, Harry paid tribute by having Schwartz add birthstones for Meghan, Archie, and himself on the underside of the delicate piece.
“Meghan was touched,” a source says of the May 19 anniversary surprise, which features a flawless green emerald for Archie, a blue sapphire for Harry, and an olive-green peridot stone for the duchess. “A lot of thought went into it,” the source reveals.
Each birthstone is said to have its own meaning and significance, with sapphires believed to protect those close to you from harm, peridots said to instill power in the wearer, and emeralds considered a symbol of rebirth and love.
While working closely with the famous Los Angeles-based jeweller, the prince also took the opportunity to have Meghan’s engagement ring—which features two stones that once belonged to Princess Diana—resized and reset with a new delicate diamond band.
Meghan gave the world a first glimpse at the rings during this year’s Trooping the Colour parade on June 8. And fans got a further look during today’s surprise baseball game appearance alongside Harry at the London Stadium to watch the Boston Red Sox play against the New York Yankees. The game was in support of the Invictus Games Foundation and the first time that Major League Baseball hosted two regular season games in Europe.
Bespoke jeweller Schwartz has created high-end pieces for a number of high profile women including Beyoncé, Angelina Jolie, and Elizabeth Taylor, and is a firm fixture on red carpets around the world. The designer is also a keen philanthropist, sitting on the board of Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation cancer charity, and a founder of the Shulamit Benjamini Sandberg Medical Research Grant, which supports physicians involved in cancer research.
