Absolutely agree. She would look stunning in this Sapphire tiara. Unfortunately (for me) she seems to stick to the Lovers Knot.....

I like the fact that Princess Margaret wore the brooch for both daytime and evening events.

It's a lovely brooch (I like the earrings too) but I can understand why her children sold some of her jewellery & possessions because they live a very different lifestyle to their mother & they've used the money that was raised to pay taxes and make their own family's life more comfortable & secure.

I agree with you. Lovely as the brooch and some of Margaret ''s jewellery was, her children really have no use for it.

This is one of the many splendid jewelries she has that was sold. So sad indeed.

Princess Margaret Jewellery

I am always sad when you hear of jewels disappearing from a family collection and quite a few of Princess Margaret’s jewels seem to have been sold. Yes, I agree that it is understandable that these collections get broken up. I wonder if they are initially offered within the family at a reasonable price - I do wish the Poltimore tiara had been saved.
Here is a report in which her son talks about the sale.
