Meghan Markle Wears Lab-Grown, Ethical Diamonds: ‘She Really Loved These Earrings’

Meghan Markle is continuing her focus on ethical fashion.

On her first official visit to one of four newly announced patronages Thursday, the Duchess of Sussex debuted a pair of bold earrings from new London-based brand Kimai, which specializes in lab-grown diamonds.

“It’s so exciting for us, especially as we just launched in November,” says Kimai co-founder Sidney Neuhaus. “Her team contacted us, and we sent them to her a month or so ago. She really loved these earrings.”

Meghan, 37, who wore the $806 18-karat gold Felicity earrings to visit the London office of Smart Works, was drawn to the design as well as the brand’s ethical message.

“They are made in a lab in Belgium, like cultured diamonds,” explains 25-year-old Neuhaus, whose family is also in the jewelry industry. “They have exactly the same properties as mined diamonds, but they are environmentally friendly and less controversial.” (The traditional practice of mining diamonds “displaces land, wastes water and pollutes the air. Not to mention puts a strain on local communities,” the company says in its mission statement.)

The design, which features a diamond-encrusted curved bar that sits horizontally across the lobe of the ear (it fits just one piercing), was inspired by the idea of dancing diamonds.
