They look so much bigger worn than when they're displayed. Gorgeous.

From Her Majesty's Jewel Vault: The Delhi Durbar Earrings

These earrings are one of my favorites from the Queen. Love that dark shade of green and the design is very timeless. Very classically beautiful.

Queen Elizabeth’s Antique Girandole Earrings
The Queen wears this part usually, but not exclusively, with her Saudi Necklaces. It might have come with one of them too.

Attached is a picture of the Queen wearing the earrings.

Unless I am very much mistaken, these earrings are Queen Victoria's Girandole Earrings.

These pair is in a design favoured by Queen Victoria but it's not the same one as Queen Victoria's diamond girandole earrings (Leslie Field, pages 56 and 57). These earrings are known as simply "Antique Girandole Earrings". I don't think the Queen - or any other royal lady - has been pictured wearing them before 1970s, which makes me believe the Antiquie Girandole Earrings may be a recent acquisition/gift.

I think Queen Victoria's pair was once with the Kents. Princess Marina had breathtaking girandole earrings picture of which I have attached.

These earrings are one of my favorites from the Queen. They are beyond exquisite. Just absolutely breathtakingly beautiful.

These are beautiful, but I have to admit I prefer the pearl pendants worn without the diamond frame in their original form.

I too love these earrings - I prefer to call them the Queen Mother's Diamond Pendant Earrings :-)
I was so delighted to see HM the Queen wearing them to the State Banquet during the Turkish State Visit to the UK in November 2011 .

In The Queen's Diamonds Hugh Roberts calls them The Greville Peardrop Earrings.
So this is 'official' name of these earrings.

And they must be quite heavy to wear - one can almost see how they drag down the Queen Mother's earlobe !
