I don't think anyone knows about this particular necklace, but it was worn on another occasion, with a "harlequin" patterned gown. It also reminds me of one once worn by Princess Diana, but I've never been able to find anything to say whether the two items are the same or not.

I don't think that they are the same. Diana's necklace seems to have ridges on hers.

I also wonder if these are the same. Kudos for your knowledge GillW, as usual your library is so impressive. HM almost looks deco, while Princess Diana's seems more modern!

Very interesting, GillW, thank you for those pictures! Diana's looks to me like it could have a darker stone or enamel inbetween the diamonds to create that ridged effect, while HM looks like all diamonds, but it's impossible to tell from the different angles and the sparkle coming off these gems. Is that bracelet in the HM pic you posted part of a matching set with the necklace?

The style reminds me of the crescent shaped sapphire/diamond set that Diana was given by the Sultan of Oman. I wonder if this could be a gift from one of the Middle Eastern rulers?

Agree about GillW's knowledge. The necklaces look different. Just like rubies said. One on HM diamonds deco style and on Diana, Princess of Wales silver modern style. Both pieces are nice, but I think I would like to wear HM if I had a chance.

This image was taken in 1969 at the opening of the Scotland or Irish parliament has anyone seen this tiara before or since?

This has probably been posted before - but is a great summary of the jewels worn by the Royal Family: Jewellery of Today's British Royalty - The Tudors Wiki

This is indeed an excellent summary - quite comprehensive . I am so pleased you posted this link as I'd seen it once before & forgotten all about it. I note that there have been some updates too, so it will be worth revisiting in the future.

Hello I just read this whole thread (yes, I know, but I really like tiaras) anyway I wanted to re-cap what I've read. Based on this thread and others, I've counted 12 tiaras that we know for a fact exist and that we know for a fact are in the custody of the Queen and not a relative.

1. King George IV Diadem
2. Lover's Knot
3. Vladimir
4. George III Fringe
5. Burmese Ruby
6. Girls Great Britain & Ireland
7. Kokoshnik
8. Brazilian Aquamarine
9. Boucheron honeycomb
10. Delhi Durbar
11. Sapphire
12. Oriental Circlet

Is this correct?

These are certainly ones that HM or the wives of the PoW have used.

The Queen has worn for this May Opening of Parliament a 2 strand of pearls with the clasp worn at the front. These pearls have not been seen before.

This is one of the clearer photos, but hopefully someone can find a better one.

This 2 strand pearl necklace is the same worn to Prince Andrew's wedding, only this time, the clasp is worn centre front, unlike for the wedding, it was worn [ the clasp] on the side.
The necklace is Crown property from the Hanoverian collection.
This necklace is not to be confused with the Crown Pearls of Q. Anne and Q. Caroline.

.

I didn't want to create a separate thread for bracelets, that's why I'm posting it here.

The bracelet of Queen Elizabeth at king Constantine' s birthday party.

I have never seen it so far, anyone else?

Does anyone have an image of the Queen wearing the diamond cockade? Suzie Menkes says it was altered to become a cloke clasp but im sure i have seen the Queen wearing a part that was an enormous diamond star - it was in storage for so long but i believe the Queen worn it since her mothers death. Thank you.
