Is the Strathmore Rose Tiara a part of Queen Elizabeth II's personal collection of Jewels?

Yes it is. It was a gift from her father in 1923 for her wedding, although I've read that it is older than that.

It remained in her collection for the rest of her life, though, and passed to the Queen when she died in 2002.

Here's some more information on the Strathmore Rose Tiara

For the coronation of her husband, King George VI, Queen Consort Elizabeth wore Queen Victoria's collet necklace along with a much larger necklace.
What was the name of the larger necklace?

In the photos I saw, she had on the Collet and 2 strands of much longer pearls.

Here are the best photos I could find of the Queen Mother's 2 engagement rings:

1 2 3 4 5

I assume her daughter Elizabeth has her rings.

I've been reading this thread i would like to add my two cents on the subject ( my first post!). I read that her engagement ring was a sapphire one but on so many pictures i've seen of her, it looks more like a large pearl. That bothered me very much. But it looks like everyone agrees that she had two.
I noticed that she rarely ever worn the sapphire one again after the birth of Princess Margaret (I could be wrong about the timeline but pretty sure it was sometimes before she was queen). She did not seem to like it. I wonder where it is now. I would love to see it in color so am eagerly await for its future reappearance!
  1. The sapphire still there
  2. Then replaced by the pearl ring
Before I thought Duchess of Cornwall's ring was a third of her engagement rings (how many she had here for one husband!) but you guys have proven me wrong. Somebody here said it was an anniversary gift from the King I should like to try and dig further as to what anniversary so please stay tuned!

I would also like to point out, not sure if anyone noticed this, that although she alternated between the three rings on social occasions she never took off her gold wedding ring as you can see on these pictures here.
  1. Is that the one Charles gave Camilla? and the wedding ring
  2. The pearl and the wedding ring
  3. On rare occasion, only the gold wedding ring

It is indeed very pretty, if a little more suited to 1920's and 1930's hairstyles. Do we really know that it is still in one piece and in a vault somewhere? It's odd that the Queen Mother didn't have it reworked later in life.

Amazing jewelry collection that has the Queen Elizabeth. And fortunately the Duchess of Cornwall enjoys it.

I think I've heard (I might be way of base) that the tiara was in silver and has become rather fragile and "dark" and that's why it's not been in use? I might be thinking of something else.

As the blog above explains the tiara was exhibited at the V&A in 2002. Since it is very unlikely that the Queen has sold or dismantled the tiara since then, we can be fairly sure that the tiara is still in one piece and in the vault.

As the blog also states, the Strathmore rose tiara was purchased 2nd hand and was already made in the 19th century. So it was not made with the intention to wear it that way. And there is at least one picture of the Duchess of York wearing it in the traditional fashion, and in my opinion this works equally well.

Glad that this beautiful tiara hasn't been dismantled. Of course, if it was made in the first 20 years of the 19th century women would equally have worn the piece low on the brow.

The 1920s with their fashion of wearing tiaras low on the brow were in the 20th century. 19th century means that is was made before 1900, in an era when tiaras where worn higher on the crown of the head.

From the Court Jeweller blog: 'In The Queen's Diamonds, Hugh Roberts notes that although the piece was purchased in the 1920s, it was made in England in the late nineteenth century.'
So it was probably made in the 1880s or 1890s.

I think the last time the Emerald Necklace came out was in the 60s at the coronation of the Sha of Iran. I wish someone would wear this and show us its still around!
