I agree, they're magnificent! Did these earrings belong to the Queen Mother? Does anyone know?

Cool

That is not a beautiful picture of Her Majesty's earrings, but a gorgeous one of the Queen herself. I love it!
Oops! I meant to say it's not only a beautiful picture of the earrings, but also of Her Majesty.

A rare sighting of amethyst - I think these are the Kent demi-parure

These are the Crown Rubies, that The Queen Mother wore, until her death. The Queen first wore these Crown Rubies in Malta.

Just looking at the earrings that the Queen wore to the Pre Wedding dinner for the Royal Wedding - not a pair I am familiar with.

They form part of a diamonds-set-in-gold "tassel" parure sometimes referred to as the 'King Hassan lace diamonds'.
HM first wore the parure in Morocco some years ago.

Thanks Warren. I haven't heard of this parure - "lace diamonds" is a lovely name.

HM also appears to be wearing an additional ring on her wedding jewelry finger or, as an optical illusion, on her middle finger. Anyone recognize it or am I seeing something else?

I've never seen those earrings before, and I think they're really beautiful! I'd like to have a pair for myself too
Here's a picture:

An interesting choice of sapphire earrings worn by the Queen at the Garter Ceremony today - not a pair that she has worn to this occasion before.

The Garter earrings, belong to the diamond/sapphire tassel parure, first worn at 10 Downing Street with Prime Minister Blair.

Elly, might you know anything about my post just above yours? Diamond earrings, apricot hat.

Have just looked in Field & you could be right but the scans are a little blurred - have you any specific details of when/where the photos were taken? There's a chance we might come across a clearer image.
