It would be nice to see The Queen wear the tiara as a necklace.

This is my favourite tiara. It's beautiful and delicate. I think that it will suit The Duchess of Cambridge someday because it's not overwhelming.

Some nice pictures of the GGB&I tiara, over the years.

The George IV Diamond Diadem | The Court Jeweller

The diadem is truly majestic, regal, and amazingly beautiful.

As I said in the other thread, I'm not intresert in jewelry, but here is some information about the rubies the Queen wore last night.

From Her Majesty's Jewel Vault: Queen Victoria's Crown Ruby Earrings and Necklace

The Queen wearing the rubies last night.

I am surprised she wore Queen Victoria's Crown Ruby necklace, earrings and brooch with the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara.

It is surprising that she didn't wear a ruby tiara because the Girls seemed a bit overwhelmed against the rubies and the use of the ruby brooch on the red Order sash meant it got somewhat lost.

This is the first time I have seen HM look less than sparkling on a State Occasion. It appears so discreetly understated to the point of boredom.

To me the tiara clashes with the choice of necklace and earrings... But the effect is all but boring IMO

I love it when the Queen wears rubies for state banquets, they work well against the white dress. The tiara she is wearing could be a great candidate for the addition of some rubies along to top, kind of interchangeable stones but I wouldn't dare wish anyone to start messing with these historic tiaras!

Well it was just black tie. And she has been wearing the things from the collection for a few years now...

The British Royal Collecton doesn't really have 'parures' as such.. rather it has MANY individual pieces [some of which USED to be part of complete parures], and which [therefore] 'match'.

But the majority of the jewels are 'mixed and matched' [by colour] depending on the grandeur of the effect desired... The only complete parure in the collection [that I can think of] is the Brazilian Acquamarine 'set' which was given by Brazil to the present Queen.
Others may have other ideas tho' !

The Crown Rubies are beyond belief. Apparently there are 4 brooches in total along with the necklace. It must be the best ruby collection sported by any current RF.

Out of interest, anyone any idea what that necklace would be worth?

That is probably correct.

Difficult to tell. You may be able to value the individual stones, but the historical aspect means it will be nigh on impossible to establish how much they may fetch it auctioned.
