^ I like those jewels especially the ones that had some color around all the diamonds.   :blowkiss:

From Her Majesty's Jewel Vault: The Queen Mother's Curved Aquamarine Clip Brooches

Quote
Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother had a few pieces of aquamarine jewelry she wore around the 1930s and 1940s, including the Aquamarine Pineflower Tiara now in The Princess Royal's collection, and the Aquamarine Art Deco Brooch now worn by The Queen. She had another set of two aquamarine clip brooches dating from that period, also now worn by The Queen:

From Her Majesty's Jewel Vault: The Small Pink and Diamond Brooch

Quote
This small brooch in the Queen's collection includes a central pink stone framed by diamonds and surrounded by larger round diamonds. On the outer edge, small diamonds are tucked between the largest stones. The pink stone itself is a pink sapphire of a vibrant shade; the identification of the type of pink stone remained unknown for years, but it was reported as a pink sapphire brooch when The Queen wore it in a portrait issued to mark her becoming the longest-reigning British monarch, so this is probably palace-confirmed.

From Her Majesty's Jewel Vault: The Women of Hampshire Brooch

Quote
This diamond and pearl brooch, which was originally intended to be used as a pendant, was Queen Mary's wedding gift from the Women of Hampshire in 1893. A committee chaired by the Duchess of Wellington raised ?775 and selected this pendant from Garrard. The piece features a large brilliant with a foliate spray above and three bell flower pendants below - thanks to those flowers, this is often referred to as the Harebell Brooch. Two pear-shaped diamonds and one baroque pearl hang from the flowers; they are all removable. (Hugh Roberts notes that, as with the Richmond Brooch, the pearl here was at one point in time used for the Cambridge Lover's Knot Tiara, but was later returned.)

From Her Majesty's Jewel Vault: The Kent Amethyst Demi-Parure

Quote
The Queen has a beautiful and historic set of amethysts in her jewel collection, the Kent Demi-Parure. The most used part of this parure is the brooch without pendants, featuring a hexagonal amethyst surrounded by diamond sun rays on the bottom and scrolls and diamonds on top. Three amethyst and diamond pendants can be hung below, though they are only rarely used.

Originally belonging to Queen Victoria, this piece was eventually handed down as a gift to Queen Elizabeth II. While the weight of the prestigious necklace has never been officially revealed, it is known to have around 45 large diamonds within it. #RoyalJewels #AntiqueJewelry
