I thought they were hairpins

QEII doesn't seem to favor amethysts in general, so it may be more than just hairstyle.

Yes you are right, those in the Leuchtemberg parure hare hairpins, not haircombs, sorry for my bad english!
What I meant is that the swedish ladies have worn hairpins, haircombs and even brooches in their hair.
I think you are right, Queen Elizabeth doesn't favor amethysts, but I think it doesn't depend only on the stone. I'm sure that in her vaults there are many haircombs and hairpins from previous generations that she could wear. Maybe she doesn't like that kind of jewels or they don't go well with her hairstyle.
I think that the only time she has worn something in her hair (excluding tiaras) is when she has worn the ears of wheat brooches.

And blasphemous as it may sound, I though the wheat ear brooches in HMs looked a bit like the devil's horns!

Queen Elizabeth at today's reception wearing the marvellous Boucheron Aquamarine Clips.
For more information about the clips, their history and provenance, have a look at this article.

The Queen wore an interesting brooch for today's reception, which personally I had never seen before.
It appears to have a filigree design with 10+ small diamonds across the centre.

Anyone any idea on this brooch? Or have we finally witnessed a genuinely new addition to Her Majesty's collection?
It kind of reminds me of a brooch I've seen of Elizabeth I's portrait; at least, the design is quite similar, although there are marked differences too.


Cropped from larger image and constitutes less than 20% of the original.

All I thought was WOW when I saw this!

Granted I like HM in far more gram weight - but the work on the brooch seems to be exquisite! It is not to my taste - but I am still floored by the detailed work and design. Lovely work. Kudos to whomever - it is new and I like it IMHO.

I like it - a very pretty circle of gold lace. Different and delicate - wonder if we'll ever see it again...

It looks like Queen Elizabeth wore one of the Cullinans today - Cullinan V, to be more precise.
While it's not on the same scale as, say, the Granny Chips, it's still a Cullinan, so YEAH!

This is actually one of her top 10 favourite brooches - and who can blame HM for the choice. Always has been a beautiful creation and probably the best diamond any of may have a chance to see...
