Meghan Markle chose to support Canadian fine jewellery brand Birks for her official engagement photo-call with the Royal Highness, Prince Harry.

For her first appearance as Prince Harry’s fiancé, Meghan Markle wore a pair of 18ct yellow gold and opal earrings from Birks.

Markle had been living in Canada while she filmed for TV show ‘Suits’, and appeared to be paying tribute to her former home country.


Heralded as one of Canada’s national treasures, Birks has a rich heritage but only launched in the UK last month. Founded in Montreal in 1879, it has become one of Canada’s leading retailers, designers and manufacturers of high-end jewellery, watches and gifts.

Birks entered the UK market with five collections of varying price ranges, to appeal and cater to a wide breadth of jewellery customers, and can be found exclusively in Aurum Holding’s jewellery retail stores – Mappin & Webb and Goldsmiths – throughout the UK.
