Meghan Markle has fuelled searches for one particular accessory.

Meghan Markle was a style icon long before she was introduced as Prince Harry’s girlfriend.

But when she stepped out as part of the royal family when she was named as Duchess of Sussex after tying the knot last May, the former Suits star catapulted into the spotlight – as did everything she wore.

From the chic crossbody bag seen on her shoulder, to her favourite footwear label, to her must-have eyelash strengthening gel, most things Meghan is spotted in flies off the shelves immediately.

And now the Duchess has done it again.

Last week the mum-of-one was spotted out at Wimbledon sporting a personalised necklace emblazoned with the letter A, as a sweet tribute to her two-month-old son Archie who she welcomed at the start of summer.

Off the back of Meghan’s style choice, searches for personalised necklaces have now soared with those desperate to mimic the Duchess’s style.

‘Meghan is modern, fashionable and always on-trend, and personalised jewellery is the biggest trend right now,’ said Australian jeweller Emma Swann, who sold the bespoke piece to the proud mum.

‘It’s all about sentiment and love, which people adore, and to see her wearing the necklace is amazing.’

Speaking of how Meghan’s appearance has caused a glitch on her site Verse Fine Jewellery, Emma continued: ‘I’ve had an avalanche of orders since this went online, with people wanting initials for various reasons, many with hearts, for their children or partners - and some christenings, which is lovely.’

Emma, whose ‘Love Letters’ necklace is the brand’s most popular piece, added: ‘It’s wonderful to see how Meghan embraces fashion and doesn’t always fit the ‘royal’ mode.’

Want to get your hands on a necklace like Meghan’s? Her sweet tribute to Archie is available on Verse Fine Jewellery’s website, or head over to Missoma, Alison Lou or Catbird for similar styles.

You might want to be quick though because this accessory is going fast…

Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.


Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
