Ah, those brooches of HM! How do I love them! I have bought two ressembling ones - kind of imitation - which make me very happy.

Well, I've never seen a collection of the Queen's brooches before, so I must say that was spectacular. Thank you KittyAtlanta for posting that link.

Recently, a school friend of mine said the following:
"Jewellery must not be real, beautiful it must be".

The image is not very clear because of the flash, but I think these are the floret earrings (I think from Queen Mary) that are often worn at the Garter ceremony.

I really like the brooch in image number 28. Would any of you have any information as to its provenance? Many thanks

The brooch is really wonderful indeed, but impossible to say which provenance it actually has.
The brooch was first worn in Northern Ireland in 2009 and worn again some times since, most notably on Day 1 Royal Ascot 2009 and the Welcome Ceremony for President Pratiba Patil of India at Windsor Castle.

On page 112 Leslie Field's book, 3rd last line, she calls this brooch a quatrefoil set with diamonds and pearls with a cenre cluster.

I think you got the wrong picture Joye. #28 in those pictures is the "Irish Blossom" which only appeared in recent years. The quatrefoil is indeed shown in the series but as #29.

Yes Joye, the Daily Mail article says it was Qu Mary's but I don't remember seeing a photo of it. Does anyone know anything about this brooch? cheers in advance.

Thank you very much Gill W. Good photo of Qu Mary wearing it as a hat brooch. Looks to be 1920s style do you think? Also wonder where it has been all this time. I'm sure I haven't seen it before QEII wore it at Holyrood house. Maybe in your extensive database you might find something about it.

This is the first occasion I've seen this one being worn, so I think somebody just had a rummage around to find something different - what a fun job!

Prince of Wales feather brooch

Not sure where to post this! I have posted my condolences for Elizabeth taylor on other thread. So here I want to say that she owned some important royal pieces which will go to auction. There is of course the fabulous Prince of Wales feather brooch. A magnificent piece which puts the others in the shade. Prince Charles bid fiercely for it at auction but missed out to Elizabeth Taylor who was on the phone.
This was the famous auction of the Duchess of Windsor 2 nd April 1987. The Duke of Windsor had it made for Wallis. And Prince Charles wanted it for Diana. Elizabeth Taylor said about the bidding; "It was a wild experience - very heady and intoxicating and dangerous." she says, remembering the $910,000 she spent. [including other pieces as well.] When the the auction began in Geneva, Taylor was linked to the auction by phone. "My kids were here and we were out by the pool,"she recalls. Ďt was afternoon here, and when I won the bidding, I went around the pool just yelling, Yes! Yes!. It was a thrill.
She also said, "When i first saw it, I was with Richard. The Duke and Richard were both Welsh and we were all friends. When I admired this brooch [the Duchess] very sweetly said,'Well, I'll loan it to you so you can have it copied.' And I said, ' Oh I couldn't do that.' it was a sign of royalty."
After the Duchess died her jewels wen to auction. "I wanted it because of our friendship. It seemed almost predestined that I have this particular piece. It's as if I became its custodian."
So wouldn't it be great if soemone in the Windsor royal family were to buy it back.
Elizabeth Taylor also owned the fabulous La Peregrina pearl which belonged to Princess Zinaide Yussopov also with a fabulous history. I expect this will go for $1 million dollars because of its provenance. Richard Burton bought it at auction for $54,000 and had it set as a pendant in a pearl necklace.

I would be surprised if members of the BRF attempted to buy any jewels of Elizabeth Taylor, includng those with a royal provenance, should such a situation arise.

That's a real ornament; it's very pretty and matches the outfit excellently.
