Meghan has long favoured delicate gold jewellery and has become known for selecting highly personal pieces for royal appearances.
She has often worn pendants with the initials of Prince Harry and their son Archie
The London-based jewellery brand Edge of Ember prides itself on working ethically with ‘artisan groups and small-scale factories in Asia’ employing skilled craftsmen.
The royal has opted for the brand on several occasions, most recently while visiting a school in Dagenham during her Farewell Tour in London.

Meghan previously sported an evil eye necklace while the royal couple were on tour in South Africa.
The Duchess wore the £450 18-carat gold evil eye chain as she gave a speech at the Nyanga township in Cape Town in September.
Its creator, the Turkish-inspired jewellery designer Alemdara, explains on its website: ‘As per Ottoman legend, an evil eye on your person wards off jealousy from others.’
It adds that the symbol helps ‘dispel negative thoughts and energy’.
In the video, the duchess layered the 18ct-gold necklace over a berry shade cashmere deep-V-neck pullover from British brand Joseph costing £235.
It’s not the first time the Duchess has worn a necklace bearing the evil eye symbol. She selected a pendant with a similar pendant during her visit to South Africa last October
It is not the first time Meghan has worn the knit after she paired it with a red Boss leather pencil skirt at The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust and One Young World event in October alongside Prince Harry.
The Duchess spoke with the British youngster virtually from her home in Los Angeles on 27 March to offer words of advice and encouragement ahead of a job interview.
