Hello Russ

The attachments have been removed because they are copyrighted images and hosting them in the Forums breaches both copyright law and the Forum rules.

The tiara in question is the Girls of Great Britain tiara, HM's favourite.
The tiara is of two parts:
the tiara
and
the tiara with lozenge base attached

Nowadays it is always worn with the base attached.

I hope this helps.

You're welcome Russ.
Good luck with the portrait, and keep this thread in mind for when it is finished: Portraits: British Royals.

Does anyone know what necklace and earrings she is wearing during the state banquet in Slovakia Getty Images - Unsupported browser detected.

I feel like I should know what they are as they look very familiar, but it's late and I'm too tired to dig out my copy of Field to look. I must say she looks stunning, very vibrant!! Thank you in advance!

Diamond necklace

Here is a better view of the diamond necklace HM wore in Slovakia. It is not mentioned in either book by Leslie Field or Suzy Menks.


The necklace is not new:

The Queen just has the most breathtaking jewels. The necklace is not familiar to me. Does anyone know anything about the ruby cabachon brooch she was wearing yesterday? Warren???

According to GillW here, it's the Queen Mother's Australian ruby and diamond hibiscus brooch.

When you mention ruby cabochon, did you mean the diamond & ruby flower on the red coat (which is the Australian Hibiscus, originally [probably] a gift from Australia to the Queen Mother) or did you mean the contemporary gold with carved rubies worn on the brownish outfit when HM visited the horses?

If the latter, this is a gold design, set with diamonds and carved rubies which stones were formerly part of an Indian head ornament, and made by the modern jeweler Andrew Grima in 1966. It was one of 12 pieces which, as a collection, had won the 1966 Duke of Edinburgh's Prize for Elegant Design & Prince Phillip liked it so much he bought it for his wife.

I really wish the Queen to have many more years, yet I can't help but wonder to wom she will bequeath all these jewels, I hope the countess of Wessex will receive her share.

Actually I hope neither are bequeathed anything more than a personal keepsake!

I hope she leaves all her personal jewelry to her son, King Charles in a Sovereign to Sovereign transfer just as Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother did to her daughter Queen Elizabeth. That way all this precious history is not diminished and lost to the BRF.

I also (fervantly) hope that he will be a little more ready to loan these goodies to his immediate family. Then we would see all the royal ladies appropriately bedecked whenever the need arises, as is the case in Sweden.

Exclamation Is this Diana's Engagement Ring?

In 2004 Sergey Pevlenko did an exhibition “History in Portraits”. In his painting of Queen Elizabeth, it looks like the Queen is wearing Princess Diana’s sapphire and diamond engagement ring. Has anyone seen this yet, and if so, can you confirm if the Queen is indeed wearing Princess Diana’s engagement ring?

I thought William inherited Diana’s jewellery?

I seem to recall we've been over this before. The ring was found to have been a ruby and it was thought that it came from the Queen Mothers' estate.

How could anyone imagine that the Queen would wear Diana's engagement ring?
We're used to hearing spurious claims that Camilla has rifled through Diana's jewellery box, but this one is something else.

.... and even if it was not a ruby ring but indeed one oin sapphres and diamonds, it is entirely possible the Queen may have a similar one in the vaults. She has a wondeful parure of sapphires and diamonds (referred to aas the George VI sapphires), so there may well be a ring matching with that, which could have been mistaken.
