The Hidden Meaning Behind Meghan Markle’s $12,000 Tattoo Necklace

Markle’s jewelry has a history of holding hidden references — and if you don’t look closely, you may not notice.

When I become apart of the royal family — I want to spend 95% of my time creating secret messages in every item of clothing I wear like an I-Spy book and then every week, the news will come out with a picture of my outfit and all the hidden message answers will be on the back.


It’s gonna be great. But until then let’s get back to Markle, shall we?

This is not the first time Markle has hinted at a deeper meaning via her fashion — so why does she do it at all?

For the ‘gram?

For the likes?

For the followers?

Maybe all three!?!


It is said to be a sign of respect to the countries the Royals visit, paying homage to all the places that so graciously hosted them.

Markle was wearing a custom Gabriela Hearst LBD to a formal dinner — paired with a diamond spiral pendant on a silver chain called the “Tattoo Pendant.”

And it’s price?

A cool $11,425.00 from this boujie site.


Designed by New Zealand-born Jessica McCormack, the piece is the perfect accent for Markle who has a country-style narrative during their first royal tour.

The piece is said to be “set with 0.90 carats of brilliant-cut diamonds handcrafted in blackened 18K white gold on an 18k yellow gold chain.”

Yes please, I will take all the diamonds, yes, thank you.

But back to what the necklace represents.

Moko tattoos actually represent different Maori tribes and the different patterns each have specific meanings.

And it is just another way Markle is making a ‘mark’ on what she thinks about her host country.

Okay, okay — I see you Markle.


A post of Markle wearing the necklace was shared by jessicamccormackdiamonds, saying:

“HRH The Duchess of Sussex wears her @jessicamccormackdiamonds Tattoo necklace in New Zealand. The collection is based on the beautiful spiral pattern found in Ta Moko “So bravo New Zealand, for championing this right 125 years ago for the women who well deserve to have an active voice and an acknowledged vote, and for all of the people that this effort has paved the way for globally – we all deeply thank you. In the words of your suffragette, Kate Sheppard: all that separates, whether race, class, creed or sex is inhuman and must be overcome”

Amen to that.


And as you can imagine, under the posting — many praised Markle for her thoughtful wardrobe choices, with one user saying:

“Thank you, the labels that separate are creating a world of hatred & instead of accepting differences with compassion, love and kindness. They bring conflict & opposition instead of peace. Please continue to use your platform as a Royal, a woman and a human to try to elevate us to our best – united not divided. Under the labels we all want the same things. Thank you.”

Yes, thank you Markle. You are an inspiration to many!
