Meghan Markle's style has repeatedly evoked sincere admiration from fashionistas all around the world.

Accessory choice has always been Meghan’s distinctive style. Most of the Duchess’ jewelry is rather neat, so she is able to safely experiment with their number. Moreover, Meghan hardly ever appears in public in massive jewelry.

The way how Meghan chooses jewelry is another of her distinguishing features. She knows how to pay tribute to people who really deserve it. That is why in her first abroad tour as a member of the royal family, Meghan decided to take some symbolic pieces of jewelry. First off was an item of jewelry once worn by Princess Diana. The late royal had this accessory on during her own visit to the Oceania countries, accompanied with a barely noticeable bracelet – probably, a gift from Prince Charles.

Even though her jewelry box must have contained many expensive and antique accessories, Meghan accompanied some of her outfits with not-so-royal accessories, the most symbolic of which were three necklaces.

1. Macaroni necklace

Probably many American women have their own “boxes of memories” with macaroni necklaces, given to them by their little kids. Although the Dukes of Sussex’s firstborn will be born only in spring 2019, Meghan has already received such a decoration.

During the visit to Melbourne, one of her little fans attracted the Duchess’ attention. The boy was waiting for her with a sign and with his own hand-made golden necklace. Royal family representatives often receive unexpected gifts. Meghan put on her new jewelry and wore it as elegantly as the luxurious tiara on her wedding day. We hope it was as pleasant for her as for the delighted boy.

2. Black pendant

During her tour, Meghan Markle was repeatedly spotted in a neat decoration with a pendant, presumably of black onyx. This mineral is considered a stone talisman for those born with a Leo zodiac sign, as the Duchess of Sussex. In addition, it is believed to symbolize harmony, strength, luck, love, and confidence.

2. Maori pendant

The luxurious black dress that Markle wore during her visit to New Zealand must have become the desired outfit for many women. However, hardly anyone noticed that the Duchess accompanied her image with an inconspicuous necklace with a spiral-shaped pendant. Jessica McCormack used the ancient traditions of the Maori tribe in the design of this diamond-encrusted jewelry. It is distinctly symbolic of a personal tattoo, the idea of ​​which is to store information about the social status, title, and origin of the owner. By choosing a pendant created by a jeweler with New Zealand roots, Meghan paid tribute to the culture and history of the country.

Meghan isn’t the only woman to pay timely tribute without boasting of it. Other celebrities also use this technique, transmitting concealed messages, understandable only to a few people. Apart from that, they also have similar talismans: some are precious and antique, while others have no real value, but bear important meaning to the owner. Do you think accessories such as these can influence the person’s mood and behavior, or is it just self-deception? Do you have any similar jewelry? Share your stories in the comments.
