Favorite one, along with the Williamson Pink, and "The Chips" for the shock value.

There was a period in the 70's when her hair was longer and styled sort of ...full, or puffy. I think Gerald Ford was President.

Anyway, she looked absolutely wonderful in pics from that era.

How many pieces of jewelry does Queen Elizabeth II in her private collection?

I've always been fascinated on how much jewels The Queen personally owns not the crown jewels but what she inherited from her family, jewels from her wedding, coronations, and royal tours. Does anyone know the total number of her personally jewels she has? How many tiaras does she personally own?

Her tiaras. There is also the strathmore rose and those worn by Anne which may be on loan or actually gifted. Gifted is quite possible.

From Her Majesty's Jewel Vault: TIARAS & CROWNS

Any tiaras that date back before Victoria, are owned by the crown and pass monarch to monarch. Any since then are private property Of the monarch. They can choose to add them to the crown collection.

According to this, the queen owns over 300 pieces of jewelry privately

Does that include today? She has over 300? How much are in the crown jewels left by Queen Victoria?

I think that David Linley and Sarah Chatto might have gifted the Crown with a few of PM's more historic jewels for a tax consideration.

No. Seems last time someone tried to count her jewels was in the eighties. But buying tiaras and other major jewels has not been common in the past thirty years. The majority of jewels recieved on foreign tours put into the crown collection not private.

The official Crown Jewels there are 141 pieces.

The royal collection there is no actual count. The royal collection is everything from jewelry to painting, furniture, decor and more. Estimates have been any where from 500,000 to 2 million pieces. But most of that isn't jewelry. The number changes every year as added with gifts from tours.

'Her crowning glories: From priceless diamond bands to headpieces laden with precious stones, the Queen's spectacular tiaras are the heart of her jewellery collection'


The George IV State Diadem is my favourite along side the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland tiara!

i think it's new jewellery from foreign tours that is going to be put into the crown collection like the ones that camila got in the recent years but the pieces that the queen got in the 70's 80's and 90's are private .

i think that 300 is very law estimate maybe they counted pieces like this as one .

What;s the difference between the crown jewels and the royal collection jewlery? So is it safe to say she has 500 pieces of jewelry? How much did she inherit from Queen Mary?

The Crown Jewels are the regalia and vestments used by Kings and Queens for their coronations and other State Occasions They are owned by the State and in most cases were paid for by the State when they were first purchased or created.

The Royal Collection is the Trust which holds items owned by the Royal Family in an official capacity, some have come from official sources some have come from private sources but from a long time ago ( I think the general rule is anything from before Queen Victoria is considered as state property) . Over the generations some royals, such as Queen Victoria, have left certain items of their jewellery to be worn by future Queens, these items are thus not owned by the current Queen but used by her (and her mother before her).

When Leslie Fields wrote her book in the late 80s it stated the Queen has 300 items of jewellery. I would imagine given she has inherited many of her mothers items since then and received a number of items of jewellery as official gifts that number is now much higher.

So we can safely assume she has about 400-500 personal jewelry? How many did she receive from Queen Mary?

No one really knows because, as we have seen on a number of occasions, the oldest jewels people think have been sold off or gone elsewhere sometimes pop up again. There's no definitive list of Queen Mary's jewels nor a list of what she gave to others. I would say given all the different earrings, pearl necklaces, plain (yet spectacular) diamond necklaces and brooches she owns plus all the things she inherited from her mother (even if she has leant them back out to others) a guesstimate near 500 would be fair.

Do you think she inherited 100-200 from Queen Mary?

Lately, the Queen has frequently worn a few modern tiaras such as her modern sapphire, ruby and aquamarine tiaras. Have these tiaras been made of stones previously owned by the Royal Family ? Or from stones gifted to the Queen over the course of her reign ? Maybe some of the posters here may answer those questions.

The answer to your question is no.

Sad, but true. All of us would like a tour of the personal vaults but it isn't going to happen.

Most of the Queen Mother's Mrs Ronnie Greville collection came down to the Queen and some pieces have been seen on Camilla I believe. The Greville jewellery was a spectacular addition to the Queen Mother's cache of gems especially as I'm sure that Queen Mary gave or left some of her private jewellery to her only daughter and her other daughters in law.

Of course, we don't know what Prince Philip has gifted his wife in personal jewellery over the years either. A necklace for an anniversary, brooch for a special birthday, it all adds up. I'd say about 400 pieces would be about right.

the sapphire was a necklace of a belgian princess that the queen bought a and they made a tiara frame for it , the aquamarine the queen commissioned it from Garrard in 1957 and the ruby tiara is a redesign of a diamond tiara that was a wedding gift and some rubies she got als as a wedding gift from burma .

How much do you think she got from Queen Mary?
