Sory, I should read more carefully next time! I just saw Commonwealth and thought of the Wastminster Abbey Service.
Anyway, it's indeed very hard to tell which brooch The Queen wore from the photo I saw on The Royal Channel.

The Queen has worn part of the Kent amethyst brooch, for her Devon visit to the cadets.

If only she would wear the rest of the amethysts again some time soon. I do like it when she wears these old jewels with a real history to them.

This is one of my favourite brooches in general. The amethyst works so well with the purple coat. The Queen does know how to make beautiful combinations - thumbs up!

I know the amethyst looks wonderful on purple, but how gorgeous would it be on one of those crisp white summer jackets she has? It would be breathtaking....

Just found out that the Girl Guides have Centenary Celebration this year, so I'm hoping HM will wear the brooch they gave her to one of their events.

I agree, it's a beautiful brooch. Loved Her Majesty's pearls once again!

Yes, the brooch is beautiful. What gems is it? I also wonder if the Queen wears real pearls or glass. I have heard on QVC in American that woman of her time period wore glass pearls because real pearls were hard to get. Does anyone know if her pearl are real?

The central stone in HM's brooch is a 18.8 carat diamond, known as Cullinan V. You can find out more about the brooch here.

Of coure these are real pearls! Even if real pearls were hard to get at a time, The Queen sure had the resources to buy the real thing. She has inherited a lot of pearls from her mother and grandmother. Before that she already had many real pearl necklaces. This particular necklace is a favourite of hers, actually. What's more, I doubt Elizabeth II has ever worn a fake jewel.

Thank you. Did you know that Jacqueline favorite pearls were glass? All society women at that time wore glass pearls, so I wondered about the Queen's.

One can never tire of the Cullinan V heart shaped diamond brooch. It is so stunning. The Queen is looking so beautiful in the tangerine color!!

Pearl Necklaces

The Queen has 3 choices for her daytime 3 strand pearls necklaces.
1. Silver Jubilee gift from George V
2. Coronation gift from Amir of Qatar.
3. Necklace made from family collection of pearls early in her reign.

The jewelry Her Majesty wears are indeed very real. To go a bit off topic, Diana wore several pieces of costume jewels, but the Queen wears the real deal.
