It just needs to be worn upside down - or maybe, sideways.

What necklace would this be? In the third portrait.
It seem like some great pearls...but not a traditional pearl necklace..

I have never seen this necklace before, but it seems to me it is very similar to what the Princess Royal wore in her hair at the State Banquet for the visit of the President of India in 2009.

Me too - though it was very in style at one time. It offers the jeweler an opportunity to show off their design and fabrication skills. But to me it always looks like disparate elements pushed together. Skillfully pushed together, but a mash-up none the less.

Maybe...there are similarities and Princess Anne sometimes surprises us with some of her jewellery choices. Like the Double Meander tiara, the QMary chocker or the unknown portrait tiara

I think I would have liked it better if it really looked like a scarab.

The rubies in the brooch are carved, and I have always assumed carved to be scarabs and Phillip had them put in this brooch. Admittedly, it's not how I would have used them (I like scarabs) but it was a lovely gesture.

Some of her brooches just look very dated, and some of them look classic and some are truly timeless. But she has given them all such significance in the way she has worn them.

I think the big problem with the Grima ruby brooch is not so much the design, but the fact that the clothing the Queen wears it with never shows off the brooch, or even seems to go with it. The brooch needs very tailored, simple clothing, solid colors, and that is not the Queen's style in her public dress. Put this same brooch on Akris in cream or white and it would give a very different impression. It still wouldn't be a favorite of mine, but the aesthetic is just all wrong for the Queen's clothing. Clearly she's wearing it for sentimental reasons.

I have to admit that this last outing looked wonderful and very festive which was the point I think. Well, that and its sentimental value.
