I'm pretty sure one of the rings is indeed Queen Victoria's Coronation ring.
The other sapphire ring is the one the Queen usually wears with this parure.
But I really have no idea about the square (?) ring: it's entirely unfamiliar to me.

The square ring, Her Majesty usually wears on the third finger of her left hand - I noticed it for the first time during a state visit to Pakistan.

It says in the description that those are Queen Mary's trays that the jewels are presented in. And what luscious color on those sapphires; you can really appreciate the size of those earrings in the photo of HM wearing them.

Thanks for the information!
Do you happen to have a picture of the Queen wearing it at any time?

Can someone ID the necklace Her Majesty is wearing in this picture?

Not a lot of help but here is a clearer picture of the necklace.
It looks like 2 + 2 + 2 to me, bind together with a diamond clasp. The necklace looks as though the three strands could be worn separately too. It's not unusual: the Queen has a 4 strand necklace with similar clasp that can be worn together with a 2 strand one. Either way, the design looks pretty modern to me so I'm wondering whether it was an early Jubilee gift? Incidentally, I don't recognize the earrings as well so it's possible it's a demi-parure.

I've read elsewhere that the pearl necklace the Queen is wearing was a gift from the Emir of Qatar in a previous visit. I think the Queen is wearing it in honour of her guests. We've not seen her wear it on other occasions.

It's very possible that it's indeed a gift from one of the Arab monarchies and, since the Queen wore it for the Qatar state visit, I'd assume it had indeed been a gift from that particular country (otherwise, it would have made no sense to wear it on the occasion).

It's the Qatari pearl necklace; HM has had it since at least 2009.

She has it for much longer. She wore it on an official Visit to Berlin in 1987 for the 750th anniversarys of the town.

Thanks for the pictures, Warren.
Since the last time the necklace was worn was for a Qatar visit, I daresay we can definitely say we know its origin.

Is it just me or the necklace is a 6-strand (4+2) when you look at the right side, but then magically transforms into a 5-strand one (3+2) at the left side?
Also, the earrings are definitely from the same demi-parure; both the design and the stones are a perfect match.

A combination of pearls, white, yellow and pink diamonds - a great combination.

She wore the King George Festoon Necklace in Berlin in 1987.

I think Her Majesty received this necklace and earrings in 1992 - I think there was also a ruby and is one necklace and earrings set. I will try and confirm ...

If you look on the RJWMB you will see a photograph of the event I was speaking.

I believe this is the diamond and ruby necklace, a gift to HM from the late Emir of Qatar, HH Sheikh Khalifa bin Hamad Al Thani, in 1985.
