“It’s been a wonderful boost for my brand, and I am so grateful for Meghan’s support,” Lisette Polny, the designer of the up-and-coming brand, tells PEOPLE.
The Bar Stack Ring in 14-karat yellow gold retails for $715 and features pavé diamonds. It can be worn alone (as Meghan did) or stacked with other rings of the same style in different finishes.
“It’s such a simple design,” says Polny. “My company is still quite small, so for [Meghan] to select me was really quite an honor. I think it says something about her — I don’t think big brand names define her.”
It’s not the first time Meghan has shown her love for the brand, which was founded by Polny seven years ago and named after her daughter, Zofia. Last year, Meghan wore a pair of her Dash Ear Studs on the cover of Vanity Fair. “She was given them by a friend over two years ago, and I know she barely takes them off,” says the designer, adding, “I was obviously elated and honored.”

With “four or five” pieces from Sofia Day in her collection, Meghan chose the bar ring with two other delicate (and unidentified) gold bands on her right hand to visit a radio station in Brixton on January 9.
“She seems to have a carefree, yet timeless style,” says Polny, who counts Jennifer Lawrence and Eva Longoria as clients. “I love that she is a natural beauty with an underlying sense of glamour — understated and timeless.”
