Duchess Meghan steps out in $50,000 ruby earrings by Kiwi designer Jessica McCormack

The London-based, New Zealand born designer is one of Meghan's favourites.

The Duchess of Sussex looked in high spirits as she attended the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall alongside The Duke of Sussex and other members of the royal family on Saturday.
Glowing in a beautiful black bespoke jacquard dress by Erdem and her go-to shoe designer Aquazzura, there was also a very subtle finishing touch to her outfit that comes with a not-so-subtle price tag that we almost missed.

Turning to New Zealand jewellery designer Jessica McCormack, Meghan finished her outfit with gorgeous ruby heart-shaped earrings, said to be worth $50,000 according to the NZ Herald.
The earrings are a ruby variation of Jessica McCormack's signature GYPSET Heart Hoop Earrings which are set with 1.30-carat and 1.32-carat diamonds in 18k white gold and yellow gold.
Taking to Instagram, Jessica shared a photo of the Sussexes, with Meghan wearing the earrings, at the Festival of Remembrance.

This certainly isn't the first time Meghan has worn pieces by the London-based Kiwi designer.
Earlier this year during an outing to the Wimbledon Championship with friends – with people falling in love with her 'A' pendant necklace by Sydney-based Verse Fine Jewellery in honour of newborn Archie – Meghan wore the Jessica McCormack Signature Heart Button Back Ring in sapphire on her pinky finger.

And, during her royal tour of New Zealand with Prince Harry in 2018, Meghan wore the designer's Tattoo Diamond Pendant, inspired by the Māori ta moko during a speech to mark the 125th anniversary of Women's Suffrage in New Zealand at Government House.
Following the appearance of the diamond necklace, the white gold version of the piece sold out overnight.

Last week the Duke and Duchess of Sussex undertook a number of engagements to mark Remembrance Week before they take an extended break for the next month or so.
On Wednesday the couple surprised military families at their weekly catch-up at the Broom Farm Community Centre, to hear about their experiences as parents and couples who are often apart from their loved ones for months at a time.
They also gave an adorable update on six-month-old Archie, revealing he's grown "two tiny" teeth, with Meghan also chatting with other parents about how Archie was sleeping, teething and crawling.

The following day the couple attending the 91st Field of Remembrance service at Westminster Abbey to pay their respects to those who served in the Armed Forces.
The Duchess of Cornwall had originally been scheduled to attend also however, due to illness had to unfortunately pull out.
She was, however well enough to attend the following two events with the Sussexes, as the royal family were out in full force for the Festival of Remembrance on Saturday and the Remembrance Sunday Service at the Cenotaph at Whitehall on Sunday.
