I did not know about this set of emeralds! I have to admit I do not particularly care for them, but they are more casual than her other emeralds....

The Queen is rarely pictured wearing this historic amethyst pair of drop earrings part of the Kent Demi-Parure.
I think they are quite magnificent & should be seen more often.

Thankyou for the pictures of the Kent amethysts. I think they are really lovely, with the tiny pendant drop.

Amethysts, while the Kent ones are beautiful don't fit the Queen IMO. I much prefer her in sapphires of emeralds I don't really know why!!!!

The Queen appropriately wears Emeralds for the Order of the Thistle Ceremony
I believe these are the pair that were originally purchased by Queen Victoria
Diamond & Emerald fringe earrings

A photo, although small, appears on Fields page 95, and shows a definate fringe at the bottom of the emerald earrings.

The Thistle Ceremony earrings, I have not found much about, except that I know they can inerchanged with a diamond drop.

Another exquisite pair of sapphire earrings - part of the King George VI Victorian suite given to the then Princess Elizabeth by her father on her wedding day along with a matching necklace.

I think that the photo Elly C shows, that it is the pair of Greville chandelier earrings.

I don't think the earrings in this picture (posted by Elly C) are the Greville chandelier earrings. Here is a clear picture of the chandelier earrings and I wouldn't say the designs look similar.

.

I think they are the Queen's other pair of chandelier earrings, origins unknown(to me).
She has worn them A LOT!

Yes, indeed, as you state, this is another pair of chandelier earrings. I really would like to watch what is in Her Majesty The Queen's jewellery 'box'! I think that it is huge!

Elly C, these are the antique girandole earrings, that The Queen is wearing in your Garter photo.
Any luck with a photo of the emerald fringe earrings?

No I haven't found a photo yet.

But, I have found another pair I don't recognise worn by the Queen at the Gala to celebrate her Golden Wedding Anniversary. Can anyone enlighten me please?

The pictures link works for me.
I've heard that such problems often occur with images from Getty: you just have to click the 'Refresh' button a couple of times and will be able to see the picture.
If you continue having difficulties opening the picture from Getty, you can view it here.

Elly C,, if you go to the RJWMB, you will see that I asked for photos of the emerald fringe earrings. Baxter kindly provided them. I am unable to post photos, which means I appreciate the ones you have posted. Also Baxters.

These are still a mystery, althought to be a gift from an arab country or maybe Brunei.

These chandelier earrings look impressive,but imo,they are appropriate for a younger woman.I'm sure the Queen knows that.
