Normally, the bride is the one receiving gifts on her wedding day, but Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, opted to give her new sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge, a little something special to celebrate the occasion.
Meghan reportedly gave Kate the aptly named Kensington Bracelet by Zofia Day Co.
The yellow gold pieces were created especially for Meghan, who approved the design. But now, they are available for purchase on the Zofia Day website for $450.
“It’s an overwhelming honor to be part of history and for my pieces to be given as a keepsake for this momentous occasion,” Lisette Polny, the founder of Zofia Day told People. The magazine reports that the bride also gave six of her best friends the bracelet.
In addition to the bracelets, Polny created bespoke necklaces for Meghan's good friend Benita Litt's daughters, who were bridesmaids in the ceremony.
“I have always wanted to create a petite line, and my daughter loves to wear my designs,” says Polny. “So I decided to make Benita’s girls some special pieces for their special day.”
This isn't the only gift Meghan Markle gave to her friends on her wedding day. British milliner Stephen Jones also created hats for the bride's closest friends. "I am particularly delighted to have hatted [Meghan’s] mother, Doria Ragland in her mint beret and fashioned fantasies for her closest friends, highlighting their beauty and individuality," reads a statement from the designer.
Kensington Palace also confirmed the news with a statement - "Stephen Jones was also commissioned by Ms. Markle to create custom hats for several of her closest friends" - though they did not share which friends received the toppers.
