I don't remember ever seeing the picture with the Turquoise. I would love to see it now on HM,with her white hair I think it would really be beautiful.

The Queen wore, early in her reign, what I call the Bahrain earrings. These consist of a round diamond stud suspending 3 baquette diamonds and the a medium sized pearl. They first came to notice when the Royal Collection featured them as a 1947 wedding present from Sheikh of Bahrain.
I queried The Royal Collection at the time as the official listing of the wedding presents did not include earrings from Bahrain.
He gave a pearl shell with 7 pearls attached.
I have been told that 2 pearls from this gift were used to make the earrings.
This may be so, but I am not fully convinced.
These earrings can be seen on The Royal Collection site for the 1947 wedding presents.

Thank you joye - it just makes you more curious to know what else is in those vaults.

Here's a better picture of the ruby set gifted by the Amir of Qatar & worn here for the State banquet in Turkey in 1998.

The shear size of the drop in the pearl earrings is just breathtaking, I'm just in awe of them. And the rubies.....a delight!

Thankyou EllyC for the photos of rubies and the pearl earrings.

The Queen also has a single pearl stud earrings.
Again worn during the early years of her reign.

Any luck with a photo of the Bahrain earrings.[Royal Collection Royal Tours exhibits]?

This portrait is the best I have managed to find so far - I think this is the right pair, but I will keep looking.

The earrings as displayed in Royal Wedding exhibition:

Pearl/Diamond earrings a gift from the Sheikh of Bahrain (Royal Collection)

They are wonderful.

Jewellery worn for Opening of Parliament

As we have seen The Queen wears different earrings for The Garter Ceremony.

She also wears a different necklace and earrings for Opening of Parliament.
I have noticed the large drop pearl earrings, and the girandole earrings. Also Q. Vic. drop diamond earrings.
The necklaces have been Q. Vic collet diamond necklace, Festoon necklace and the Golden Jubilee necklace.
Can we see which have been worn since 2000?

Elly C, thanks for all the wonderful pictures. I wish HM would just throw us a bone and surprise us with some different jewels. I never tire of her earrings I love them, but you know there's probably a whole slue(SP)of earrings never even seen. Maybe she just has her favorites and doesn't think about it!!Still we can dream.......

Thankyou EllyC, for 6 years of earrings, worn during the Opening of Parliament Ceremony.
It is nice that The Queen changes her jewellery for us.

I have to agree with you. When you see the wonderful array of brooches HM wears, you start to think of all those earrings stored away. However I imagine many would be quite heavy & cumbersome for her to wear nowadays. I hope some more photos get posted, particularly colour ones from the earlier part of her reign. Some earrings we know she's worn in the past haven't been featured in this thread as yet.

Field's book has The Queen wearing a single pearl stud, pictures on pages 76 and 130.
On page 134/135 The Queen wears matching earrings to her 6 row pearl and plaque necklace.
On page 50, she wears Q. Vics diamond stud earrings. Gee these ones seem most impressive. I wonder what carat weight for them?

I love Mary's Floret earrings, does the Queen were a similer pair that was owned by the QM?

I don't know if the Queen has inherited a similar pair from the Queen Mother.

I don't think these wonderful rubies have been posted in this thread before:
Queen Mary's ruby cluster earrings

I also came across this lovely picture from the State Opening of Parliament in Australia from 1954

Queen Mary's floret earrings

Ref page 122 Fields book.
