Meghan Markle's pinky ring may be super stylish and elegant but, like much of what she wears, has a poignant message behind it too
Meghan Markle's pinky ring is hitting all the right spots, as the chic piece combines elegance with a powerful message that reflects her beliefs.
- The Duchess' stunning piece of jewelry is from Shiffon Co. - a brand that champions sustainability and supporting gender equality.
- Although Meghan won't be seen at the Wimbledon Royal Box this year, the 1972 tennis pinky ring is a reminder of the gender pay gap in professional sports.

Although Meghan Markle's engagement ring is probably the most noticeable piece she wears, there's no denying Meghan Markle's pinky ring is a stand-out piece. Luckily, unlike the cost of Meghan Markle's wedding jewelry, this piece won't cost you royally.
Her latest accessory, which was first spotted at the Invictus Games in April 2022, has also adorned the Duchess' pinky at the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. Meghan Markle's white dress was complemented by the ring, as well as her stunning snowflake earrings.
The brand behind the stunning jewel, which is called 1972 tennis pinky ring, Shiffon Co. is dedicated to producing beautiful products in a sustainable manner and uplifting women. In light of this, they set up a non-profit organization, The Startup Girl Foundation - that receives half of Shiffon's profits to fund female founders. In other words, they support entrepreneurial skills in women, in order to economically empower them. Their mission? To close that gender gap, particularly in entrepreneurship.
