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

Its a shame that we haven't seen it in such a long time!
