The affordable jewellery brand behind Meghan’s ‘evil eye’ necklace

Thanks to the wonder that is video calling, even during lockdown we’re still managing to get glimpses into Meghan Markle’s wardrobe while she’s isolating with husband Prince Harry and their baby son Archie in their new LA home.

Despite the lockdown, Meghan Markle is continuing to carry out her role as patron for the charity Smart Works, which provides clothing and coaching for unemployed women with upcoming interviews. One such way she has done this was to video call one young British woman ahead of her job interview to wish her good luck and provide her with words of advice and encouragement.

Meghan looked happy and fresh-faced for the video chat, with her hair in a half-up half-down style and a gorgeous berry-toned V-neck sweater on, but one thing in particular that we couldn’t stop staring at was Meghan’s necklace.

The gold-plated necklace features an evil-eye style pendant decorated with blue and white topaz stones and is from demi-fine jewellery brand Edge of Ember, clearly one of her favourites as it’s a brand she has been spotted in on more than one occasion before.

Called the Visionary Necklace, the design is inspired by vintage Asian coins, a modern-day talisman said to carry good fortune. The blue topaz evil eye in the middle is said to protect its wearer from negative vibes.

The evil eye symbol is a common source of inspiration in fashion and jewellery design and this is not the first time Meghan has sported jewellery bearing it either – she was also spotted wearing a similar six months ago on her tour of South Africa with Prince Harry.

Whether she believes in the symbol’s protective powers or not, there’s no denying it is a beautiful necklace. If you’re looking to copy Meghan’s look, you’ll be pleased to know it won’t break the bank either, as the necklace comes in at a pretty reasonable £135 – not bad considering it’s got the Meghan seal of approval.
