I LOVE the Godman necklace, it really is too beautiful. I'd love to see it with the vladimar tiara with the emeralds on, this necklace deserves to be out a lot.

Here you go james! A most delicious pairing if you ask me. I do hope Her Maj will wear this pairing once more sometime. The grandness is more to Camilla's taste rather than the Queen's though so perhaps we might have to wait till Charles is King to see this combo again.

Fabulous - I seem to remember seeing that pic before, but doesn't it look just amazing. She really seems to fall back on the rubies a lot lately - come on Liz, gives the emeralds a go! Thanks PrinceJohnny!

Just looking at the Godman again, wouldn't it look great on a frame as a tiara - now that would be fierce!

I think the combination of the godman necklace and the Grand Duchess Vladamir tiara is amazing. I too think it is unlikely that HM will be wearing the necklace in a hurry, but for slightly different reasons. It is quite a big and spread out necklace, and to do it justice, the wearer needs to wear a dress with quite a deep neck - something that the Queen does not now do.... so I suspect the next wearers of it are likely to either be Camilla or William's wife.

Great idea, especially as the BRF only has one substantial emerald tiara.

So true. The Godman emerald necklace is impressive, and would look remarkable on a frame. And, QEQM also had an impressive emerald and diamond necklace:

The Godman with the Vladimir and emerald drops is one of my very favorite ensembles from QEII

On 7th December The Queen and her Duke attended the Royal Variety performance at the Opera House in Blackpool. In combination to the floret earrings and the Festoon necklace, HM wore her favourite diamond watch and a diamond bracelet, which I think was given to Diana!

I think the earrings that HM wore at the Royal Variety performance in Blackpool were not the floret earrings but the Queen Mothers diamond earrings that HM wore recently for the first time in T&T

They are the Queen Mother flower earrings; it's around stone surrounded by marquise diamonds. They were a gift from King George to Queen Elizabeth. She wore them constantly--it is nice to see HM wearing them now.

They are a lovely pair of earrings, and its good to see HM use them now. It is interesting that she took over 7 years from when the QM passed on before using these earrings.

I could be wrong,but I think the bracelet was only borrowed by Diana in the early years once to wear on a state visit. The watch HM loaned Diana was a small diamond watch. Very elegant I might add.

By the "the floret earrings" I mean the Queen Mother's favourite pair, a gift from her husband. The pair that was worn in Trinidad and Tobago last month. Obviously we reffer to the same earrings.

I had serious doubts if the bracelet was really a gift or just a loan. Thanks for making it clear to me.

Ah, its just that the floret earrings usually refer to Queen Mary's floret earrings that the Queen tends to wear occassionally at Garter Day or State opening of Parliament.

The long lost Emeralds where are they? Bring them out- or give them to Camilla

I agree--Camilla would wear them wonderfully. WONDERFULLY (I felt the need to repeat myself). And, I've never seen a truly good picture of them.

I have a question about The Kent Fringe Tiara and The George III - and then I guess the Hanover Tiara. I'm getting really confused between all the fringe tiaras. What is the difference between them because they look similar? I realize one belongs to Princess Marina's family - the other to Her Majesty, but I mean look wise.. what separates them? Also, could someone identify these pics for me please? I'm making a page online of the different tiaras of the British Royal Family and for some reason I think I have some of these under the wrong description. I think I can tell the difference between the Kent Fringe Tiara.. when I see it on Princess Marina because it just makes sense.. then I have a pic of Princess Alexandra of Kent on her wedding day. Was Alexandra wearing the Kent tiara for her wedding?

Pictures 1, 2 and 3 are all the same tiara. Commonly referred to as the "George III Fringe Tiara", it was made for Queen Mary using diamonds from another piece dating back to George III (although Geoffrey Munn stated in his book "Tiaras" there is no definitive evidence this is true). Queen Elizabeth was given the tiara when she became Queen Consort in 1936 and it returned to The Queen after her mother's death (along with Victoria's Indian Ruby Tiara, which she has also worn).

Pic 4 is a convertible necklace/tiara given to Mary, Princess Royal by her mother, Queen Mary. This piece was later sold to pay death duties.

Pic 5 is the fringe tiara made for Princess Marina as a wedding gift from the City of London. It now belongs to Princess Michael of Kent.
