That emerald is a delicious colour! I do hope we get to see this worn again soon. It will make a nice change amongst HMs few other emerald brooches.

I thought it looked like a hand with extra fingers. IMO not one of her best.

I think this one is a bit of a "Bovril" brooch - you either love it or hate it! Still, there are plenty of others for us all to love to our own taste!

It is a unique design, maybe not to everyone's tastes, but the various diamond cuts are really magnificent as well as that emerald.

I do love it for the beautiful green color and all the different diamond cuts, but don't love it as much for it's actual shape.

Well, something more recognizable that we've seen HM wear before; her mother's beautiful Shell Brooch with the pearl nestled in its center. She wore it at the final day of Ascot. I just love those waterfall of diamonds; imagine how they must shimmer in day and evening light.

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II Leaves The Summer House In

Is that Queen Adelaide's brooch HM is wearing today at BP or is it the larger of the Nizam brooches from the tiara?

I believe it's the Greater Nizam rose, which hasn't been seen for some time. Nice to have it out again and it looks lovely on that pretty summer dress.

Now if she pinned the brooch on her right shoulder, it would have been displayed better against the white fabric, unless she wanted to give the illusion that the brooch had leaves.

From Her Majesty's Jewel Vault: The Sri Lankan Flower Spray Brooch

This brooch is one of my least favorites from the Queen. I just don't like the different stones together. It's a design that I am not interested in.

Hi Tangoskater,
I am new to the blog and I am also updating by Brooch list. I too have no details of HM's brooch on her arrival in Abu Dhabi in 2010. Was Salma (or someone else) able to help in this regard? If so would you mind sharing your findings. Thanks in advance.
Bryce

I think this brooch has the potential to be quite stunning if worn on a black or a white dress (the Queen rarely dresses in these monochromes).

I have never seen this brooch before, and I love it! The design is just wonderful. Love those pink and blue sapphires.
