Adding my Twopence and Own experience : having just ohne ring on the finger is different to wearing 3 as stacks. Espescially if you are Not used to it. She just might have found that with 3 rings a smaller band is more comfortable to wear. And that‘s it!

The Duchess of Sussex wore her wedding earrings for the christening of Archie.

I think you nailed it! One of my sister's wears three rings, wedding, engagement and eternity. They are all in the 70's style of wide bands yet as she is a statuesque woman (I'm 5'1" on a good day) and she has long fingers so they fit beautifully and don't look in the least cramped.

Now for me, two modern sized rings is pushing it. So mostly it's just the wedding ring that gets worn.

Megan seems to have long fingers but appears to be small boned.

DoS had amazing earrings on today:

Actually I saw somewhere that the black enamel part is detachable and she wore them at Trooping this year, but can't find any sort of "official" confirmation that it's indeed true. Either way, they're very beautiful. The price tag less so

Those earrings are gorgeous! Who pays for all of Meghan's new jewelry?

Now we know the origins of her trooping earrings too! The black backing comes off and they can be worn as 'studs'. There are links on Twitter to confirm.

Meghan or Harry pay for her jewelry unless someone is giving her a gift (family/friends etc).

It looks like the Duchess of Sussex's new earrings are a version of the earrings that Lorraine Schwartz made for Taylor Swift to wear to the Golden Globes this year. Meghan's earrings are obviously just the top portion. Also Harper's Bazaar says that Meghan's are made with onyx but according to Lorraine Schwartz, Taylor's are made with black jade.

Taylor’s earrings are making my earlobes ache in sympathy. They look so heavy. Much prefer Meghan’s.

I wouldn't be at all surprised to learn that several pieces Meghan has worn on more gala occasions like the Lion King premiere are loans from the jeweller.

Just a feeling, but IMO Harry hardly has the income to be smothering his wife with very expensive jewellery within months of their marriage. Plus, Meghan has not been borrowing anything from the Royal vaults as far as we know. And Meghan comes from a profession in the US in which loans of jewellery from the maker for special red carpet occasions is considered both practical and convenient.

Meghan has her own money too...and who's to say she's not being gifted by other family members or even friends?

ETA: I also think Harry has more money than we know about (same with William). IIRC they were gifted monies from The Queen Mother as well...weren't all the great grands?

I don't think they're a loan since she's worn them twice now, at Trooping the Colour without the jacket and at the Lion King premiere with the jacket.

The Queen Mother gave Harry and the other non-heirs money. William didn’t get anything because he’ll be king.

Ah ok yes makes sense.

So we really don't know (that I'm aware of) of what kind of money Harry has ..I don't remember if the terms of the will were public as to dollar amounts like Diana's was.

Either way...I think he can spend 10 grand on a pair of earrings for Meghan if he cares to.

I think he does & even if he didn't, I strongly suspect that Prince Charles would ensure that his daughters-in-law have a good stock of jewellery. Also, as someone else pointed out, Meghan has her own money & can buy things for herself if she chooses to.

There is also Diana's jewelry which we have seen very little of when you consider her personal jewelry (plus unset stones). Meghan has worn a few of those pieces ..presumably gifted to her by Harry.

Royal brides are often given jewellery as wedding presents, especially non royal coming into the family. It is a way of establishing a jewellery collection that is solely theirs and not part of the royal collection.
Jewellery possibly given as gifts when visiting other countries could be another matter, I am not sure if they are viewed as personal gifts or something they would use but which eventually would become part of the royal collection.

Meghan is allowed to use any piece of jewellery given to her in her official capacity as The Duchess of Sussex, but it will become part of the Royal Collection after she passes away.

This is not quite correct, the late Queen Mother placed the bulk of her money in trust for her Great Grandchildren, Prince Harry inherited a larger share than Prince William, but Prince William benefited from this trust nevertheless!
