Meghan Markle dons Karen Walker earrings

Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle has shown her appreciation for local brands after sporting Karen Walker Jewellery while on her Australian tour.

The Duchess wore the New Zealand brand’s Temptation stud earrings, featuring a dyed pearl set in 9-carat gold on two occasions: first on her visit to Bondi Beach, where she and Prince Harry spent time with members of non-profit mental health group OneWave, and again on the second day of her trip to Fiji.

Worth & Douglas has manufactured and supplied Karen Walker for 15 years and director John Worth said consumers have shown “huge interest” in the earrings since their appearance on the Duchess.

“We have experienced increased sales globally. Meghan has made her own mark in fashion, even before becoming engaged to Prince Harry, and has created the effect that anything the Duchess wears increases sales and exposure for that brand,” Worth said.

“Meghan has previously worn Karen Walker clothing at New York Fashion Week.”

Markle has established a penchant for Australian and New Zealand jewellery brands while on her trip Down Under for the Invictus Games; she was also spotted wearing earrings from Sydney designer Natalie Marie’s eponymous brand.

Markle’s stylists also showcased the work of local fashion designers including Karen Gee, which the Duchess wore during her pregnancy announcement on 15 October. According to news reports the designer’s website crashed following the announcement due to immense web traffic.

The Duchess also wore pieces from local fashion designers including Martin Grant, Outland Denim, Dion Lee, Emilia Wickstead and Zimmerman during the tour.
