Meghan Markle has been sporting a lot of turquoise jewellery recently, but is there a spiritual meaning behind the decision?
Kate Middleton’s sister-in-law has bene slowly entering the public sphere again over the past weeks, attending Wimbledon this week, and Trooping The Colour last month.
Since Meghan’s outings have become more regular again, many fans of the Duchess have been spotting a new love she has for turquoise jewellery.
On June 28, the Duchess joined Prince Harry for the Boston Red Sox v New York Yankees’ baseball game, in support of the Invictus Games Foundation.
For this occasion, Meghan wore a pair of 18-karat gold turquoise earrings by Jennifer Meyer, which retail at £330.
The day Meghan and Harry debuted their son Archie to the world at Windsor Castle, Meghan accessorised her white Givenchy dress with a turquoise necklace.
According to the experts at Crystal Vaults, the turquoise stone has spiral powers of protection.
In it’s early days, the stone was used to protect riders from injury.
They explain: “For centuries Turquoise has been recognised as possessing the power to protect riders from injury due to falls.”
“In the Orient, a Turquoise ring was worn as a protector against all things evil”, they add.
“However, the ring emitted protective energy only if the stone was given by a friend.
“It was believed to restore clear vision to the mind when the thinking became muddled and thus ensured good fortune.”
While it is not clear the exact reason Meghan has taken a liking for the stone, there’s a chance the Duchess is using the stone’s powers to “protect her” against “evils”.
