We do keep hoping for emeralds...

I definitely hope HM wears some emeralds, since she's visiting the Emerald Isle!

I'm so hopeful!
Emeralds are my favourite stones, but the Queen doesn't really wear them all that often.

I guess she won't be wearing the Vladimir tiara with the dangling emeralds, unless there's a state dinner.

I just love that tiara, with emeralds, pearls or even without any drops at all.
If there were a state dinner, an emerald tiara would be a safe bet, but as it were, an emerald brooch is probably the most we can hope for.

I just went and looked for likely brooch candidates for HM to wear the to the upcoming games. There are no obvious "Olympic ring" matches.
She could choose some of the ruby or sapphire brooches as a nod to the Union Jack.
She could also wear some of the Commonwealth gifts on days that one of their star athletes are competing.
Her choice in brooches seems to lean toward the subtle rather than the obvious choices. What do the rest of you think we might see on HM's shoulder at the games?

I think the Queen will choose to wear brooches that have Commonwealth association, to symbolise her position as not only Queen of the United Kingdom, but also Queen of the other Commonwealth Realms as well.

As such, I think we'll definitely see the Wattle Brooch (a gift from Australia) and the Fern Brooch (a gift from New Zealand). "Safe" choices such as the Flower Basket brooch, one of Queen Victoria's Bow brooches, Lover's Knot brooch, one of the Emerald and Diamond brooches will also probably be seen.

What we will almost certainly not see at any official function are any of the Cullinans.


And while we are on the topic of Brooches, attached is the Cambridge Pearl Pendant the Queen wore for today's meeting with the Prime Minister.
Pearls and diamonds - what can be better? Apart from diamonds-only, diamonds and sapphire, and diamonds and emeralds, that is.

A definite possibility.
In fact, I wouldn't be surprised (although slightly disappointed) if the Queen chose it for the opening ceremony: London brooch for London 2012 - sounds perfect.

Its appropriate, but not one of my top 10 .. its lovely - but lets face it - the lady has some serious bling to choose from. I hope Alberts brooch gets a showing or two since the coloring will be vivid and perfect with what I am sure will be a very patriotic wardrobe over the Olympics. And HM will be liimited by her good diamonds that are included in the exhibition at BP... so more sapphires!

This is a very simple and lovely brooch. Thank you for posting a close-up.

Maybe that one I call the Commonwealth Rose? It is often worn for Commonwealth events so it may be a nice one to choose. Don't know the provenance however...

Does anyone remember or know which brooch the Queen Mother wore to the opening of the games in '48? That might give us a clue.

We think alike.
I tried to look up the brooches worn by Queen Elizabeth (The Queen Mother) for the 1948 Olympics.
Unfortunately, there appear to be only a couple of pictures of the royal family, and not one where any brooch is visible.

@GillW - I'm not familiar with that brooch; at least, I couldn't recognise it on the picture.
Has she worn it to many Commonwealth occasions, presumably giving the brooch its name?

Here are my guesses for the Nobel Prizes 2012:

Queen Silvia: Leuchtenberg Sapphire Tiara
Princess Victoria: Baden Fringe Tiara
Princess Madeleine: Modern Fringe Tiara

For the gala dinner for the Nobel Laureates:

Queen Silvia: Nine Prong Tiara
Princess Victoria: Cut Steel Tiara
Princess Madeleine: Four Button Tiara
