Meghan Markle wore a blue dress in Fiji in October, with a pair of incredible earrings drawing much attention. The Duchess, who had recently announced her pregnancy, attended a state dinner in the dress and jewels. She wore the blue Ginkgo Cape Dress from Safiyaa. The gown is worth £1,095, but how much did the earrings cost.
At the time of the state dinner Meghan’s earrings were a mystery, described only as “borrowed” by Kensington Palace.
However, the earrings were recently reported to be from Butani.
The Hing Kong based company creates high end pieces for huge sums of money.
Kate Beckinsale recently wore Butani earrings at the 2016 Critics Choice Awards.
Jennifer Lopez and Christina Hendricks have also worn the sparkling jewels on the red carpet.
The stunning chandelier earrings were large, with big yellow stones dangling from three diamond encrusted strings.
Now an expert as estimated their price, and it’s rather high.
Deborah Papas, gemologist from Prestige Pawnbrokers of Channel 4’s Posh Pawn told Express.co.uk: “The Duchess of Sussex never ceases to amaze us with the beautiful jewellery she wears.
“She chose to wear an absolutely stand out pair of chandelier style diamond drop earrings in three strands set with white and yellow coloured diamonds.
“Most are round but some are pear shaped to give the stepped drop effect and all set in white gold.
“These drops appear very heavy almost pulling down the lobe but sparkle beautifully even with the slightest turn of the head. Truly stunning.
So how much are they worth? Half a million, according to Deborah.
“They could easily be worth £500,000 or more.”
Pregnant Meghan Markle’s baby bump is blooming as she nears her due date.
Stylist Lucas Ermitage told Mail Online Meghan has shunned maternity brands in favour of designer pieces that fit snugly around her bump.
He explained she has also been wearing contrasting coat and dress combinations to highlight her tummy.
Lucas said: “She is enjoying being pregnant and knows that that is what people want to see when she is at public engagements.”
