It looks like a bunch of gorgeous rubies.

It is certainly not the Sri Lanka brooch with the multi-coloured stones, and it looks indeed as something big and massive which we haven't seen yet. A short remark: again, as in Slovenia some years ago, I have the impression Queen Mary is back! But it is Elizabeth, damn, I adore her so much.

I cannot see a good enough photograph - it seems to be a golden spray of flowers? I can't quite see!! The brooch is one I am unfamiliar with - perhaps a gift from an UAE ruler?

The flame lily brooch is beautiful!

Interesting brooch that has not been seen for some time

There are better photos of the brooch worn today, but again, one that I'm not familiar with. Does anyone know what the central stone is or any information about it's history?

I believe this diamond bar is HMs choice for anchoring her Orders sash, vut is often out of site in most photos taken fromt he front. There are other pics of this event where it can't be seen and I think it only came into view after HM put on the new order chain she had just received.

Wow - thanks for posting those - this is the one I called the "ruby Albert" as it's style is so similar to the sapphire Albert brooch. It's only been seen very rarely to my knowledge and is mostly seen on quite dark fabrics so it's been hard to see what a pretty pink stone it has at the centre. Fabulous to see it so clearly.

On day one on the cream outfit ... could it not be this one: Mad Hattery! » Blog Archive » Visit of Canada – Pinewood Toronto Studios: HM The Queen

And the blue one on the floral dress is almost definitely the sapphire Queen Mary brooch without it's pearl. It looks too small and rounded (rather than oval) to be the Prince Albert brooch.

No I don't think so - not the right shape to be the maple leaf spray.

Unusual way to wear this 14 stone diamond bar brooch. Usually it is pinned diagonally.

This is the best image of the brooch that I've seen, however, I have no idea which brooch it is. It's beautiful.

Thank you GillW for replying. This is probably the reason why I am at 83 brooches, as am having trouble trying to identify some. I haven't included the Queen Mums brooches in the tally either. However, Her Majesty is wearing what looks like a completely new brooch on this visit to UAE. Boy she sure knows how to keep us all guessing bringing out something completely new and interesting.

Have we seen the feather brooches before? and I must say Wow; HM looks fantastic in that pale yellow shade. Very lovely.

These are wheat-ears, and I think they were once worn as hairclips many years ago, but I have never seen HM wear them as brooches before.

Fern brooches are normally more pointed in design and less "parallel"
For comparison you can look at
