Encinitas jewelry designer Lisette Polny wasn’t at the royal wedding, but her jewelry played a key role. Meghan Markle presented six of her best friends — plus her new sister-in-law, Kate Middleton — a delicate, custom-designed 14-carat gold bracelet as a keepsake. Called the Kensington bracelet, it was designed by Polny at Meghan’s behest.
Additionally, Markle commissioned Lisette Polny, the founder of California-based jewelry brand Zofia Day, to create two bespoke necklaces for her good friend Benita Litt’s daughters ( they were also bridesmaids in the ceremony). “I have always wanted to create a petite line, and my daughter loves to wear my designs,” Polny told People. “So I decided to make Benita’s girls some special pieces for their special day.”
New details are emerging about the two dresses Meghan Markle wore when she married Prince Harry on Saturday, designed by Clare Waight Keller of Givenchy and Stella McCartney. TODAY’s Sheinelle Jones reports.
She may not have had a maid of honor, but Meghan Markle made sure that there was no doubt in the minds of her closest girlfriends how important they were to her. The Duchess of Sussex commissioned six gold bracelets from California-based fine jewelry brand Zofia Day, each costing $450, according to People.
It’s not every day that your jewelry gets worn to a royal wedding. But that’s exactly what happened for jeweler Lisette Polny, founder of Zofia Day, when Meghan Markle‘s friends wore her pieces on Saturday.
