I don't think it's Queen Victoria's stud earrings either. Queen Victoria's earrings feature one single large diamond in the middle, whereas the newest earrings seem to have nine small diamonds in the middle.

Here's another picture of the earrings HM wore today, and it does look like a cluster of smaller diamonds in the center:

Gorgeous.

I absolutely love these stunning pearl earrings! They remind me Mary's wedding earrings.

I can only imagine the weight of HM's earrings! They're absolutely beautiful; I wonder if they have the wire supports. Mary's are also beautiful, but look lightweight in comparison.

I was just thinking the same thing. If I wore earrings that heavy on a daily basis for decades my lobes would be down to my shoulders.

I like HM in formal diamond earrings that dangle a bit!

I thought Queen Mary's had a single stone in the middle of the clusters. Could these have belonged to the Queen Mother?

Those are the ruby earrings the Queen Mother used to wear, aren't they?
It's a bit hard to tell from the picture, and unfortunately we are unlikely to get better ones.

I think you are right, they do seem to belong to the parure that Queen Vicioria had made, originaly set with opals.
As you may be aware, Queen Alexandra had the opals replaced with rubies (she considered them unlucky).

Indeed, the earrings do appear to be part of the Indian Ruby Parure (also known as the Oriental parure). I often wondered how the original tiara looked with opals.
Incidentally, I much prefer the Oriental Circlet to the Burmese Ruby Tiara (even though I don't dislike it too much either).
