Sweet meaning behind Meghan Markle’s new pinky ring – ‘Everything she does is with intention’

Meghan Marklehas always been vocal about women’s issues and the role she would like to play in making the lives of women better in any way that she can.

In the past, the mum-of-two, 40, hasworked with Smart Works, an organisation that helps women in the workplace through job interview training and also provides appropriate clothing for them.

The Duchess of Sussex is also keen to support women’s organisations and rights in the jewellery that she wears and has been spotted with a diamond ring on her pinky finger from jewellers Shiffon Co., which has a special meaning behind it.

The $2,800 ring called the 1972 tennis pinky ring was created in “honour of the 50th anniversary of Title IX, the landmark legislation that paved the way for women in sports.”

The ring is a play on the traditional tennis bracelet and is shaped in a spiral to allow the diamonds to show from all angles.

According to Shiffon Co.’sofficial website,the diamond studded pinky ring is continuing this legacy and supporting women through its sales.

“This diamonds all around version of our signature pinky ring continues the mission of supporting women with 19.72% of profits going to our Women in Sports Investment fund. This fund will investment in female funded companies in sports related verticals, including health and wellness.”

New York-based Shilpa Yarlagadda, who founded the fine jewellery brand from her Harvard dorm room, in a bid to close the gender gap particularly in entrepreneurship, spoke toPeopleabout the duchess wearing her ring.

She said: "When Meghan wore our ring, it was just such an amazing moment. I've always been super inspired by her. I listened to her UN Women's speech when I was in high school."

“I watched Suits and I was a part of an organisation called One Young World — I was one of their ambassadors and she's a counsellor for them.”

She added: “Everything she does is with intention, thought and meaning behind the impact that she could have. I know that when she's wearing a piece of jewellery, there's a lot of intention behind it.

“We both care so much about empowering women and she's a fellow female founder with what she's built, too.”

Shilpa added that the ring was created for a special reason: “We never saw that many female founders, that many female investors. The original pinky ring was designed to represent a pinky promise, to pay it forward, to support women.”

Meghan wore the brand's diamond rings to the Invictus Games in April and Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee celebrations last month, when she and Harry flew in from California.

It was their first official visit to the UK as a couple since they left for the US in March 2020, and they were joined by their children, Archie, three and one-year-old Lilibet.
