How lovely to see the Wheat ear brooches again - I believe they date from William IV's time.

With the activities of 2010 almost over with only the Christmas Day Service to go, I think it is time again to see which brooches were on the top of The Queen's favourites this year and I have to say it is surprisingly:

top favourite: Gold dahlia brooch (9)
second: Cartier aquamarine clips (8)
third: Bow brooch (7)
Trefoil (7)
Paisley (6)
Cullinan V (6)
Kent amethyst (6)
Flower basket (5)
Jardine star (5)
Australian Hybiscus (4)

The Queen has worn the gold dahlia brooch for both The Christmas Broadcast and for Christmas Day Church.
Most interesting

This is HM's Australian Wattle Spray brooch. A present from the Australian government given in 1954

It is indeed. I liked this gold brooch on her cream scarf yesterday. It was a great idea, IMO.

I thought the gold dahila brooch made the whole look! Such a nice touch, no one does brooches better than Her Majesty, IMO.

I think she overdoes the brooches. We do not need to see so many of them. In fact, I once read that she has about a hundred brooches! Yuk! I like discretion.

Frankly, the people who read this particular section can't get enough of the magnificent collection of Well Over 100 brooches that grace HM's outfits virtually daily. They are part of her signature look, full of beauty, priceless history and sentiment. We love them all, so if you don't then maybe there are other boards that you may find more interesting

For the rest of us, long may we continue to enjoy the incomparable display.

I love HM signature look with the hardly ever changing discreet pearl ear studs and three-strand pearl necklace combined with one of her many brooches. And I adore the way she matches her brooches with the outfit and the occasions.

I truly love all of QEII's jewelry. And when one stops to think that most of what she has was either inherited or gifted, it isn't surprising that she has "over a hundred" of anything.

No offense to QEII intended here, but when one looks at photos/portraits of royals from history, the current monarch is actually kind of drab in her jewelry sometimes. But she can do the bling when she wants too!

I don't find Her Majesty drab at all when she wears her jewelry. I think she has fantastic taste and wears jewels from tiara to bracelets perfectly.

If you like discretion, you wouldn't have liked Queen Alexandra and Queen Mary and their displays of jewelry.

Yes, those two ladies do make QEII look rather reserved in her taste! - but of course she would look well overdone if she followed their style these days!

You Know, its funny as much as I scour these forums for pics of jewels and think I have seen most everything, there must have been at least 6 brooches that I hadn't seen. Amazing!!! I wonder if HM enjoys wearing these jewels as much as I enjoy looking at them! Thanks for all the pics!

I say "bring on the brooches"!! It would be wasteful to not utilize all of those beautiful jewels for everyone to enjoy. Letting them rot in the vaults would be shameful.

I firmly believe that HM must enjoy her brooches. Why else would she wear a different one with every new outfit? She certainly does not make the same effort with her earrings and necklace.

I think it's something like a game for HM - "lets see what we can find that is (a) most appropriate to today's event/host/location (b) compliments the outfit - but probably has not been worn on this coat before (c) delights the jewel-watchers" and add into the mix now and again a fun surprise for everybody that hasn't been seen for years.
