The pearl necklace is always a classic, and Is usually the one HM is always seen wearing.

What a stunning piece of jewelry! Love when it's worn as an individual brooch.

The Queen is indeed wearing the Girls of Great Britain Tiara today, combined with her coronation necklace and earrings.

Thank you for the info, Artemesia. I love the fact that HMQ is leaning across a guest and laughing at something Charles has said!

I can't quite see the earrings - are they the "Coronation Earrings" or the Queen Mother's diamond earrings from Mrs Greville?

The Girls of Great Britian Tiara is definitely magnificent!

I'm pretty sure she's wearing the coronation earrings.
The Greville Diamond Drop Earrings are quite similar in shape but are slightly longer than the coronation ones.

According to Fields, the Queen wore this necklace July of 1986 "when she attended a dinner given by the president of West Germany during his state visit to Great Britain. Her six-row pearl necklace set with different-sized diamond plaques and the matching earrings were a gift to the Queen from the Amir of Qatar on her 1979 visit to the Gulf States."

It just came to my mind, do anyone know if The Queen and senior female members of the royal family still wear formal evening gowns and tiara's for Christmas Dinner at Sandringham?

I have read that Christmas Dinner at Sandringham is a formal affair. The men wear formal suits and the ladies wear enening gowns and tiara's. I think Sarah, Duchess of York once mentioned this in one of her books or something.

I'd love to see HM wear the detachable center piece to the County of Cornwall bracelet as a brooch, though she's certainly not lacking any in that department!

Quite so, though HM is hardly short of fringe tiaras themselves!
