Meghan Markle recently showed off a flashy piece of new jewellery with a hidden meaning and "intention" behind it.

The Duchess of Sussex is regularly spotted with glam rings, necklaces and bracelets, some of which have come from Princess Diana's personal collection.

Back in April, Meghan debuted two new glittering diamond rings when in the Netherlands alongside Prince Harry at the Invictus Games.

She was also spotted wearing these rings last month in London during the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

The two Shiffon Co pieces – one of Meghan’s favourite jewellery brands – glistened as she spoke to some of the younger royals on the Buckingham Palace balcony during Trooping the Colour, reports the Express.

One of the rings is the 1972 Tennis Pinky Ring.

According to the website, the ring was designed and made “in honour of the 50th anniversary of Title IX, the landmark legislation that paved the way for women in sports”.

It continues: “Shiffon’s 1972 Tennis Pinky Ring pays homage to the iconic Tennis Bracelet.

“This diamonds all-around version of our signature pinky ring continues the mission of supporting women with 19.72% of profits going to our Women in Sports Investment fund.

“This fund will invest in female funded companies in sports related verticals, including health and wellness.”

The ring is made in New York City by master craftsmen and is made to order “for your ring size”.

It can be created in 18k gold or platinum, and Meghan’s ring is in the latter metal.

As for how much it costs, the ring is £2,245.17 or $2,800, and there is currently a waiting list.

Shilpa Yarlagadda started the fine jewellery company in 2017 from her Harvard dorm room.

She commented on the Duchess wearing her rings: “When Meghan wore our ring, it was just such an amazing moment.

“I've always been super inspired by her,” she added, referencing some of Meghan’s career highlights such as her UN Women’s speech and her role in Suits.

Shilpa added: “Everything she does is with intention, thought and meaning behind the impact that she could have.

“I know that when she's wearing a piece of jewellery, there's a lot of intention behind it.

“We both care so much about empowering women and she's a fellow female founder with what she's built, too,” the designer told People about Meghan being a founder of Archewell Foundation.

The 1972 Tennis Pinky Ring is a new version of the Duet Pinky Ring which Meghan also has in her jewellery box, and wore when she covered TIME magazine alongside Harry.

The company's diamonds and gems are also ethically sourced and follow conflict-free and socially responsible practices.
