That's very kind of you but I'm pretty sure I'd land into serious legal (copyright) issues had I done so.
However, I do plan to share my database of British (and other) royal jewellery on the blog I'm currently working on. For free, of course.

No, I meant the one she was wearing with a Kelly green suit - here is a link:

Jewels Queen's Brooches / Lancaster Brooch

I think the discussion ran along the lines of a feathers and a lion?

That's John of Gaunt Arms Brooch. I've attached the best close-up I have.
Incidentally, I've also located the Mythical Sea Creature Brooch, which the Queen wore for Prince Philip's 90th birthday dinner back in 2011.

- The John of Gaunt Arms Brooch (featuring a lion, gold feathers - a combination of the Arms of England, France and, presumably, Castile).
- The Mythical Sea Creature Brooch (
a mythical sea creature wearing a gold crown, covered in pavé-set diamonds and with cabochon ruby eyes)

Cropped from larger images and consist of less than 20% of the originals.

You rock!! I like the sea creature - I wish we could see it better! I've made a decision today that I'm going to start wearing brooches :)

The mythical sea creature is actually The Fishmongers Guild Badge. The Queen wore this badge in 2011 to the Fishmongers Hall, as did Princess Anne to the same event.

I am most interested to find out why you think this badge is John of Gaunts Arms. Do you have a picture of his arms?
The Queen is called The Duke of Lancaster in her own right, and the Duchy of Lancaster is hers also.

I'm sorry if I confused you - I thought the John of Gaunt Brooch was called the Lancaster Brooch - but I've corrected it on my board. I had never seen the Mythical Sea Creature Brooch which I now think you are saying is really the Fishmongers Guild Badge. Is that correct?

That's why I love researching the brooches - I get to find out about all kinds of cool things, like the Queen being the Duke of Lancaster!!

Also, I've decided that I love baroque pearls and any brooches they are part of!

This is The Fishmongers Guild arms.

The Mythical Sea Creature Brooch isn't their badge.


It looks more like a gift from Fishmongers Guild, not their badge (IMHO). But Princess Anne always wears this brooch for Fishmongers Guild's engagement.

I'm game for any jewellery, especially with diamonds and/or emeralds.
On the other hand if a jewel has (insert a precious or semi-precious stone here) or pearls in it, I love it anyway.

As Spheno pointed out, The Fishmongers Guild Arms badge is definitely not the same one as the Mythical Sea Creature Brooch; the latter was, as far as I have been able to find out, a relatively recent (2009 to 2011) gift to the Queen.

This emerald brooch is absolutely exquisite! Love the stunning rose design. It was a gift from the Ladies of India to Queen Mary for the Delhi Durbar in 1911.

I don't really care for engraved gems, but I just love that diamond border; the piece looks like intaglio where the design is incised into the gem.

What a pretty shade of green. This is a lovely piece of jewelry.

I guess this emerald's value is very high, but I do not like it. I even think it is a little bit ugly. I prefer the non-engraved, sparkly ones.

Calling on all brooch experts.

Is the "brooch" in her hat real or is it just for fun? The Queen Mother used to wear brooches on her hat so I wondered if the Queen had done the same

It's not a brooch, just a detail of the hat.
I've attached a close-up for better view.

Image cropped from a larger one and constitutes less than 20% of the original.
