Diamond Earrings Worn By The Meghan Markle In Fiji Is Said To Be Worth £500k

The Duchess of Sussex stunned onlookers with her appearance during a black tie reception hosted by the president of Fiji, Jioji Konrote, last October.

And the dazzling yellow diamond earrings Meghan Markle, 37, wore for the lavish occasion, along with a £1,095 dress by designer designer SAFiYAA, have now been revealed as being by celebrity designer Butani.

An expert told FEMAIL that the generously sized multi-tier earrings, which at the time Kensington Palace confirmed the pregnant duchess had borrowed, could be worth up to £500,000.

An array of celebrities, including Jennifer Lopez, Kate Beckinsale, Rihanna, Christina Hendricks even Michelle Obama have also been spotted wearing the Hong Kong-based brand.

Members of the royal family attending official engagements are not usually seen wearing jewellery borrowed from designers.

Speaking about the opulent earrings,  Deborah Papas, gemologist at Prestige Pawnbrokers of Channel 4’s Posh Pawn, said: 'The Duchess of Sussex never ceases to amaze us with the beautiful jewellery she wears.

'In Fiji she chose to wear an absolutely stand-out pair of chandelier style diamond drop earrings in three strands set with white and yellow coloured diamonds.

'Most are round but some are pear shaped to give the stepped drop effect and all set in white gold.

'These drops appear very heavy, almost pulling down the lobe, but sparkle beautifully even with the slightest turn of the head and are truly stunning. They could easily be worth £500,000 or more.'
