The Duchess of Sussex has worn a number of Birks pieces over the years. She's been a fan of the Canadian brand since discovering it while living in Toronto.

The Birks Snowflake Snowstorm Diamond Earrings ($15,100) are another favourite of hers. The Duchess of Sussex sported the earrings at 2020 Commonwealth Day services.
