Meghan Markle is seemingly a woman of many talents, and she could well add jewellery designer to her bow. First off, she upgraded her engagement ring to add an eternity band to it, and now she's customised her favourite diamond earrings.

The Duchess of Sussex wore a pair of simple Lorraine Schwartz emerald cut studs to the Trooping the Colour parade last month, and she re-wore them to The Lion King premiere, but this time they were different.

She added a removable onyx frame to them, thus turning them into more statement pieces, perfect for a red carpet event, and Meghan will be able to change them according to her mood.

It could well be that she took a leaf out of Kate Middleton's book, who changed a pair of sapphire and diamond earrings that used to belong to Princess Diana.

Lorraine Schwartz famously decks the world's biggest celebrities in diamonds. She designed Kim Kardashian's engagement ring, and Beyonce often wears her jewels too.

Prince Harry collaborated with her to design an eternity ring that he gave Meghan shortly after the birth of baby Archie.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
