The Duke and Duchess of Sussex recently made a virtual appearance to promote their new podcast, with fans spotting special significance behind Meghan's stunning cocktail ring. 

Meghan and Harry are currently expecting their second child, who will likely be born at the end of spring or early summer, and this was their first public appearance since announcing the pregnancy.

During the video appearance, fans were quick to spot special significance behind Meghan's pink cocktail ring. Made by sustainable brand Ecksand, piece is made using recycled gold with an ethically-sourced pink sapphire and diamonds. 

"Not only are we excited for the Archewell Audio podcast, we are incredibly honoured that Meghan chose to re-wear one of our sustainable jewels during her first public appearance since announcing her pregnancy," the brand's co-founder Erica Bianchini told PEOPLE. "Our commitment to sustainable practices is something Meghan connects with. That's a cause that Harry and Meghan hold close to their hearts."

The ring is especially significant because Ecksand is a Canadian brand. Royal fans will know that, before she became a member of the royal family, Meghan lived in Canada for years while filming Suits, so it's lovely to see her supporting a Canadian brand.

Although the exact diamond pavé ring would set you back more than a thousand dollars, British jewelry brand Monica Vinader offers a similar style, above, if you want to copy Meghan's look.
