Meghan Markle choosed Birks for official engagement announcement

MONTREAL, November 27, 2017

Meghan Markle, the newly announced HRH Princess Henry of Wales to be, chose to support Canadian fine jewellery brand Birks for her official engagement photo with the Royal Highness, Prince Henry of Wales. Announced to the world at two o’clock GMT this afternoon, Meghan looked beautiful in a white coat and beige stilettos, teamed with a pair of 18K yellow gold and opal earrings from Birks in the official announcement, taken outdoors, in the grounds at Kensington Palace.

Les Plaisirs de Birks 18K yellow gold earrings feature mesmerizing white opals, stones known to stimulate creativity. The collection is inspired by the everyday. Putting a spin on timeless, Canadian classics, Les Plaisirs de Birks offer sleek pieces that highlight the new, contemporary flare of the Birks brand.

Heralded as one of Canada’s national treasures, the fine jewellery brand has a rich heritage, which recently launched in the UK last month. Founded in Montreal in 1879, it has become one of Canada’s leading retailers, designers and manufacturers of high-end jewellery, watches and gifts.

Uncompromisingly beautiful, inspired by its heritage and known for its edgy take on classic styles, Birks speaks to the self-accomplished woman who seeks to create her own sense of style. With entry level products right through to red-carpet showstoppers, this much loved and followed brand offers a cool and contemporary collection of fine jewellery products that appeals to the modern woman.

Fitting that the announcement comes out of the U.K., Birks recently entered the market with five collections of varying price ranges, to appeal and cater to a wide breadth of jewellery customers and can be found at Mappin & Webb boutiques in London.

Les Plaisirs de Birks Yellow Gold and Opal Earrings are available in stores across Canada and online at, priced at $995.00.
