This is my second favorite tiara behind the Girls of Great Britain!

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: The Queen's Top 10 Diamonds: #7. Alexandra's Kokoshnik Tiara

This tiara is breathtaking! To me, it's a perfect tiara! The wall of diamonds is truly magnificent. A stunning and regal tiara!

It is lovely and I like how Queen Mary wears it, but I can't say it's one of my favorites.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: The Queen's Top 10 Diamonds: #5. Her Engagement Ring

Like I said before, this is my favorite engagement ring of all time! Such a timeless and classic ring.

Beautiful, and her wedding bracelet from Philip isn't too shabby either!

Phillip has a nice eye for bling.

Queen Elizabeth's engagement ring is quite possibly my favourite royal engagement ring of all times.
It's simple (not overcrowded with stones for a bling effect), beautiful, precious (the centre stone is marvellous), and elegant - precisely the ring I'd want for myself.

Nothing like a classic diamond engagement ring, IMO.

Such exquisite jewels! The design is very elegant and grand. Breathtaking necklace and earrings!

The ring and bracelet are beautiful. Diamond jewelry Is beautiful and the duke of Edinburgh certainly made nice choices for the future Queen.

Not only that, but he's a good jewelry designer as well, much like Prince Albert. This is a bracelet he designed for HM for their wedding anniversary in 1952:

I have often though Prince Phillip has excellent taste in jewelry, lucky for him that his Queen can wear things so well, and has an opportunity to do so often.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: The Cullinans, Part 5: The Necklace Pendant

Not one of my favorites but I think it's interesting.

I think this is one of my favorite necklaces although I'm not usually partial to cabochon stones. But the combination of emeralds and diamonds plus the asymmetrical dangling drops make this a piece I'd add to my jewel box any day!

I can see that as a classic engagement ring; a diamond almost 4 1/2 carats wouldn't be too overlarge and HM seems to wear it well.

I looks art deco and is one of my favorites.

I totally agree, the ring would be a spectacular engagement ring.
But since it's such an important piece (not on its own but by being part of the Cullinan), only heir to the Throne, or the heir's heir, would probably be able to propose with it.

I had no idea that she wore this tiara. Does anyone know the history?
