The Queen has worn her lovely 2 pearl and canary yellow diamond brooch to Sunday Service.
I have not seen this brooch for some time.
GillW, from your records, when might be the last time, this brooch was worn.
At one time, it was seen frequently.

Well prior to this summer break in Scotland (no detectable coverage for weeks!) the last appearance I have for that brooch is on 26 March 2008, for the French State Visit to Windsor - it was worn on the rear of HMs sash - ver remiss and unusual for me but I didn't keep a note of a picture reference so I'm not sure how I know that!

The time before that, it was worn on th rear of the sash at the Banquet in Washington DC - perhaps this is it's new vocation, which would be a shame as it's a very nice one and should be seen "up front" more often imho.

Most interesting it has become a "rear" brooch.
I agree it is a shame. It is certainly different enough to be worn "up front".

Might you have photos of the 2 occassions that you mentioned please?

Joye (and everyone else) I'm really sorry but I was looking at the wrong brooch!! I wondered at the time why there was so few events! I accidentally filtered for the "diamond double bar" instead of the "double pearl triangle" (my excuse is I was feeling a bit poorly last night!)

To compensate, here is my list of this pearl brooch appearing since 2007:

05-May-09 - Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, 250th Anniversary
23-Apr-09 BP - Black Rod, outgoing
27-Oct-08 - St James Pal - reception for Leonard Cheshire 60 years
27-Jul-08 - Crathie Church
17-Oct-07 - Pool of London, name Trinity House Vessel GALATEA
23-Jul-07 - BP - Order of Merit: Lord Reese of Ludlow
19-Jul-07 - BP - Ambassadors - maldives
17-Jun-07 - Polo Queen's Cup
30-May-07 - BP - Dignitaries, Nova Scotia
02-Mar-07 - BP - ambassadors - Peru
15-Feb-07 - -BP - Tea for Arsenal FC

Gill, I am so glad that I'm not the only one with the jewelry bug. I believe you caught it also! My princess scrapbooks of jewels don't seem so insane to me now, for it seems you are just as "interested shall we say" in HM brooches. Awesome!!!Thanks for all your info!

Oh, lovely! Truly beautiful pieces--the picture does not do them justice, so here's a closeup for drooling purposes!

The Reception for the Overseas Chief Justices, is it right that it was the Jardine Star worn by the Queen on the blue outfit?

Actually, according to the Royal Collection website, in the Dress for the Occasson online exhibit, the beautiful aquamarine clips are actually by Boucheron--but, Cartier is the jeweler who was inspired by women hanging the wash out and he created the clip itself initially, apparently, Boucheron copied his idea. However, in tribute to Cartier, here is a lovely sapphire and diamond clip:

"Boucheron Clips" is lacking in alliteration. "Cartier Clips" it is.

I haven't been able to find any front views of the Investiture, but (despite the colour effect of the light) I think it was the same dress as for the meeting with Jean Chretien, which means it was most likely to be the Cullinan V.

Thankyou. I wondered if it was the trefoil diamond/pearl brooch. Hard to know, for as you say, there is not a good "front on" photo.

Just a note that personal conversations should be done by PM. I've taken out those posts which have no relevance to other members.

I am not familiar with this brooch. Are the grapes, diamonds and the leaves invisbly set sapphires?
