Who knew the Duchess of Sussex was a fan of crystals? Meghan Markle’s turquoise earrings have a special meaning, and new moms will love. The former Suits actress wore the earrings over the weekend at a Yankees game in London with her husband, Prince Harry. The earrings, designed by American jeweler Jennifer Meyer, were two sleek rectangles with an 18-karat gold border and a turquoise center. Markle paired the accessories with an all-black ensemble.
As pretty as they were, the earrings may have been more than some flashy accessories. According to Heather Askinoise, co-founder of Energy Muse and co-author of Crystal Muse: Everyday Rituals to Tune In to the Real You, turquoise as a stone and color is known as a “master healer” — especially for new moms like Markle. The duchess — who welcomed her first child, Archie Harrison, with Prince Harry in May — has been wearing a lot of turquoise since her birth, and there may be a reason.
“It is a wonderful gemstone to connect with when you want to bring focus to your health,” Askinoise told People. “Turquoise is the perfect crystal for a new mom as it is said to bring blessings to those who wear it.”
Those looking to snag Markle’s exact earrings will need to drop a pretty penny. The earrings (which are surprisingly still available) retail for $395 on Net-a-Porter. Still, there are tons of affordable options for those who want to harness turquoise’s energy, while still staying frugal. Kendra Scott sells a pair of Ellie Stud turquoise earrings for $39.97, while Shop Bop sells Olivia Huggie dangly versions for $50.
From the looks of it, Markle is doing just fine as a new mom — though we’re sure some help from crystals doesn’t hurt.
