Those stones look so beautiful in the gold setting, it's very simple yet elegant. One is very much used to seeing coloured stone being surrounded by diamonds, especially in royal jewels, so this seems a quite different look. But then the necklaces were not meant to be worn by royal ladies, so maybe that's why they 'saved' the diamonds? I don't know much about regency style in jewellery. Do we know examples other examples of jewels from that era?

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: Princess Andrew's Tiara

I find this tiara very beautiful and regal. However, I find the necklace and engagement more stunning. The Queen's engagement ring is my favorite of all time.

I can't help but wonder. Are all of the pieces stored in jewelry store type boxes with the name printed on them in some way, or is it a bunker with lit glass cases with everything displayed. That would be amazing to see.

One can only speculate about the way the jewels are stored, because such information is not released. It's probably partly for security reasons, that information on the jewels storage is kept secret. Other reasons may be privacy and the wish not to boast of their wealth too much. One way or the other, nothing is known about it publicly.

Personally I assume that the Queen is not too showy about the jewels storage, as she is rather a practically minded and manner of factly person. So I don't think that she would have some museum-like showcases installed for just a hand full of people who have access to the jewels. So I assume that the jewels either sit in their original boxes, or are stored in drawers, with velvet cloth protecting them from dust.

You mean 'a cheap copy of the lover's knot tiara'? Because it is obviously not the original jewel.

I think that temporary ban on the coronet's export should be a permanent one. There have been far, far too many cultural treasures important to British history that have been sold and gone overseas IMHO, especially across the Atlantic.

I agree. The coronet should stay in the UK.

This will be a real shame to lose such a historic piece. Queen Mary would be horrified at the loss.

Queen Mary would've got that coronet back and it would be back into the family's jewel vault.

I really hope that a buyer is found in the UK and it stays there!
