Meghan Markle is clearly a big jewellery fan, often mixing and matching old and new pieces, such as the meaningful necklaces she wore for her 40th birthday, or the ones she inherited from Princess Diana.

The Duchess not only knows how to style the pieces to perfection, she's also keen on sourcing unique styles from ethical jewellery brands.

One such piece is a very special bracelet from BAR jewellery, a UK-based label, which she wore when she was pregnant with her first child, Archie.

The ripple bracelet is 'influenced by the modernist masters, particularly Jean Arp, and is fluid and free flowing'.


Influenced by the modernist masters, particularly Jean Arp, the bracelet is fluid and free flowing. Can be worn alone or paired with other pieces. Recycled sterling silver with 18ct gold plating. Circumference: 14.5cm (includes opening)
One size - Carefully applied pressure will allow you to slightly bend the bracelet to fit your wrist
Handmade and finished by local artisans in London, UK using the lost wax casting method. Each piece is unique and slightly different.

Meghan's stylist came across the brand after seeing them show at the British Designer Showrooms and the Duchess fell in love with the brand, thanks to its ethical and sustainable ethos, as well as the design aesthetic.

She isn't the only celebrity fan either, as it's been worn by other sustainable advocates including Emma Watson and Arizona Muse. From the use of recycled metals (traceable and verified by the Responsible Jewellery Council) to the transition of completely toxic free polishing, BAR is focusing its efforts on creating timeless jewellery responsibly, with pieces that can be worn day-to-night and season after season.

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.
