That's what I thought. Thank you so much for clearing that up.

The George III tiara, refer to The Royal Collection. They say differently, to popular belief.

I think it is pretty much genuine, but probably has some unusual lighting which gives it a different appearance from most we have seen. Is there something in particular that strikes you as unnatural
?

I was walking past Asprey on Bond St a short while ago and saw an acquamarine and diamond necklace in the shop window that looked remarkably similar to the acquamarine and diamond neckalce that the Queen has, except that the acquamarines are substantially smaller. Does anybody know if Asprey or Garrards had done the necklace for HM?

The aquamarine and diamond necklace you are refering to is the Brazilian gift to Her Majesty The Queen. The Brazilians bought it with the Rio-de-Janeiro-based settlement of Mappin and Webb, which was taken over by Asprey and Company in the 1980s, but later sold; so I suppose that the "design" of the necklace was originally Mappin and Webb and that it stayed with Asprey by taking it over.
And this necklace is in the shop window there in Bond Street. Wauw! If I was a lady, it was taking the train and straight to Bond Street from Belgium to buy it!

More British Royal Tiaras - The Tudors Wiki

Not sure if this has been posted before, but enjoy!! :-)

Also, with respect, compared to all the other queens and their daughters-in-law, before Camilla, HM has been CHEAP as heck with lending out royal jewels to her daughters-in-law. How wonderful to see Camilla wearing the serious bling.

I am sorry, but HM has a HUGE repository of jewels, and with the exception of the ones given to her personally from her parents and husband, which I can understand, she does not seem to like to lend out others.

Whilst it may appear that it appears "CHEAP as heck" that HM does not give out many of the family jewels, others may argue that she has learnt from the mistakes of Queen Mary. Queen Mary generously gave a lot of jewellery to each of her children, and in the process, depleted the royal collection considerably (even though she had added considerably to it over the years).

As regards lending out, I tend to agree with the approach of providing each member of the royal family with enough to keep them suitably bejewelled, in keeping with their relative status, but little more than that. This allows the usused jewels to be kept in reserve for newer members, ie daughters-in-law or grand daughters-in-law.

I stand by what I said. I think HM could be a little more open about sharing the jewels. NOT allowing others to keep them, but lending them out as befitting the status of a daughter-in-law of the Queen of England.

My sense is that the duaghter-in-law of HM are usually well turned out, and appropriately bejewelled, as reflects their relative positions. These jewels have pretty much always been provided by HM, their husbands or is their ancestral jewellery. The only potential situation where a close member of the BRF borrowed something is when Sophie Wessex is reported to have borrowed (though not substantiated) a tiara to wear at the Danish wedding a few years ago.

The Queen has worn the Kokoshnik which is nice to see again, but I cant make out the earrings, necklace, and brooches. Is she wearing the necklace she got on her birthday from her father thats made of diamonds from South Africa?

Yes, she is wearing a necklace using diamonds that she received as a gift from DeBeers during a state visit to South Africa with her parents. I believe she had a matching bracelet and a ring made as well.

The Queen is wearing "Her best diamonds" made from the 21st birthday diamonds given to her for her birthday. They were made into a necklace and bracelet No ring.
Also she is wearing her mother's foot long diamond brooch. A first for this brooch. Quite a lovely surprise.

Its great to see the Queen dressed up, and looking very regal. Its also good to see HM take out pieces of jewellery not seen for a long time and use them, like the necklace and the brooch.

Gorgeous! Just simply gorgeous! I love this woman and I'm not even British! The tiara, the necklace and the brooch were all wonderful to see.

I can never tell which earrings that The Queen is wearing here. The Q. Vic. collet necklace earrings or the pear shaped drop earrings that The Queen had made early in her reign. To me they appear almost the same.

There not the Queen Victoria ones, do you think they might be the diamond drop earrings the Queen Mum got in the Greville Inheritence?

Necklace?

I wonder if any of you jewel experts could help me out.....I came across this picture of the Queen in a necklace that I don't recall ever having seen before. Does anyone recognize it, or have any information on it?

Queen in Germany, 1992

I don't think I've ever seen this one, either. Looks like a diamond collar.
