Would that be the year of receiving the brooch or the year of wearing in the photo? (Just curious -- love to hear about other peoples' record keeping)

question regarding royal jewerly

Is there a expert on royal jewelry on this site? Or someone who knows all about royal jewelry and how to identify them from different collections and from two different families.

There are a lot of people who have knowledge of royal jewellery. It is probably best to ask your questions and I'm sure you will get a response.

But why? The whole point of this forum is so we can all learn from eachother's questions...
I for one am very interested in old jewelry questions, but have no expertise myself...

If you want a specific personal reply then you would still need to identify, for example, which royal family or country. People with really detailed knowledge tend to have specialised.

Generally speaking, no.
What are termed "Modern cuts" tend to feature many more facets with more accurate facet angles and thus greater brilliance. This is due to the introduction from about 1900 of diamond saws, greatly improved lathes and mathematical models.
