Meghan Markle came out during London Trooping the Color event in June sporting a stunning new ring that left many eagle-eyed fans with questions. As this was his first public appearance since the birth of her and Prince Harry’s first child, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsorsome wondered if the ring was special or not push present of the Duke of Sussex to celebrate the occasion. Turns out it wasn’t, but the meaning behind the ring is still quite significant: People recently confirmed it was an eternity ring a birthday present from harry.
Eternity rings are meant to symbolize everlasting love and are usually given to women by their spouses to mark an important milestone or event. They usually look like wedding bands, except for the fact that eternity rings are usually surrounded by diamonds (an endless circle of diamonds, if you will), like Meghan’s. According Harper’s Bazaar, Harry has teamed up with jeweler Lorraine Schwartz to design the ring with a conflict-free diamond eternity band and three birthstones, all three of which are said to have quite significant meanings. There is a sapphire for Harry, which is said to protect the wearers from evil and impure thoughts; an emerald for Archie, which symbolizes passion and unconditional love; and a peridot for Meghan, known for its protective powers against darkness and evil.
