It's a well known fact that almost as soon as either Duchess Meghan or Duchess Kate step out the door, you can find a full list of outfit credits online to snap up the exact same looks yourself.

Well, one nifty Instagram user (@shoplikemeghan) has solved the mystery and revealed that Meghan snapped up the jewels back in 2016, the year she started dating Prince Harry, and the brand behind them is Butani Jewellery. The namesake of the founder, Butani, he is described as an "internationally renowned designer of haute couture jewellery" and has shops worldwide.

She is often seen wearing stacked gold rings or bracelets during the day and of course, has worn some of her personal collection of serious jewels as well as the Royal family's for public occasions. Who can forget the showstopping tiara she borrowed for her nuptials in May 2018 from the Queen or that utterly stunning aquamarine ring she wore of the late Princess Diana to her evening reception?
