The Top Ten: Princess Margaret's Jewels | The Court Jeweller

Margaret's jewels were truly magnificent. I especially love her rose brooch and wedding tiara.

And sadly so much of her jewels were sold off after her death.

It is just the "legalized theft" which is the British inheritance tax system. When Britons buy property, they pay income tax, then stamp duty, then VAT on everything that goes into a property, then council tax, then capital gains tax and then inheritance tax. No wonder that the beneficiaries of the late Princess Margaret (and so many other not so famous Britons) have to sell off valuables to overcome these unbelievable taxes.

Few photos of Margaret's engagement ring:

I'm surprised there are not a lot of good photos of her ring. Based on what I can see, I like the ring. Very lovely design.

Saturday Sparkler: The Persian Turquoise Tiara | The Court Jeweller

I find this tiara stunningly regal and elegant. The rest of the set is also beautiful.

What a wonderful entire set. I am not particularly a fan of the tiara. I really hope not to have lost this set would be a shame. We'll see.

I think torquoises are wonderful but they are at their best when worn with a white gown or the same blue Princess Margaret is wearing. Exquisite. Did this set go to auction too?

Just beautiful turquoises; they epitomise "Margaret" when I picture them.

No it wasn't auctioned. It's whereabouts is unknown. It could be that it si with one of Martgaret#s children or that it is back in the royal Vaults like the Lotus flower tiara.

I don't really like turquoise but this one really suited the late Princess Margaret.

This is how this tiara originally lookes:
View image: persian turquoise tiara

The upper row of diamonds was removed from the koskoshnik style tiara. So it received a more 'open' look which I find quite an improvement. Imo the parure is very beautiful, and I'd love to see it again.

Kate may perhaps wear the Lotus again if she attends the State Banquet for the Chinese later this month.

Its a classical piece and really beautiful tiara,it really suited Princess Margaret and it would be wonderful to see it worn again by the Duchess of Cambridge.
