I think she received it as a bequest in a will.

HUGE picture of the queen

This picture of the Queen was posted at the Glittering Royal Events Board and shows a very large picture of the Queen wearing the GD Vladimir Circle tiara and the diamond "mystery" necklace. Maybe this close detail will help someone out there to identify it. I concur with many that it is probably a relatively recent gift from a middle-eastern ruler. Not a very refined design IMHO. Let me know what you think! It takes a long time for the photo to load.

Huge picture!


The necklace isn't on my book. However, it's similar to the one given to the Queen by King Khalid of Saudi Arabia, so it's probably from Middle East.

No idea. I think it would have looked a lot better with her other diamond tiara, though (the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland one).

Mystery Necklace

I wonder if the necklace comes with a frame?
It would make a very glittering tiara!

I must say, Her Britannic Majesty has one of the most impressive jewels in the world

I was recently reading the latest issue of Majesty magazine, and I saw the Queen was wearing a demi parure of sapphires I have never seen before in Canada. The necklace was in large loop design with huge sapphires fitted in the large loops. Was this a gift from an Arab Royal Family?

Apparently so. Have a look at post 13 of this thread.

Thank you Elspeth for answering my question. That is the necklace I was talking about in thread 13. I didn't see the bracelet though.

The necklace was originally posted in the "Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip: Official Visit to Canada" thread in May. Although not a "new" necklace and has apparently been worn before, it certainly stirred up some interest in various Royal and Royal Jewellery boards across the internet.
