Brooch from the funeral is bigger and it is gold flower(lily) with pearl on it

Here is a photo of the rings she usually wears. This is the best shot of her engagement ring that I have seen.

I love her engagement ring! It's very beautiful, timeless, and elegant. The ruby ring is beautiful, I wonder what the story behind it is.

Queen Silvia has worn this combination of three rings on a daily basis for about ten years – her diamond engagement ring, wedding ring, and the ring with central ruby flanked by two diamonds. Would love to know its special meaning too.
Also in this pic, a favourite ring with a sapphire surrounded by two rows of diamonds, frequently seen on her right hand:

Closer view of the sapphire ring:

By the way, another piece with a special meaning has suddenly gone:
Her Cartier ‘Love Bracelet’ in yellow gold, which she has worn daily on her right wrist for every occasion since the year 1981, disappeared a few weeks ago...

I guess you are referring to the necklace worn at the jubilee lunch?
As I mentioned before, Queen Silvia has had it since the mid-1980s; part of a set including matching earrings and bracelet, in yellow gold with pavé-set lozenge-shaped diamond centre.

For the christening of Princess Estelle, Queen Silvia wore the most historic pearls from the Bernadotte collection:
The oriental pearl necklace and the drop pearl and diamond earrings were originally part of the collection of King Carl XIV Johan aka Jean-Baptiste Bernadotte, the dynasty's first King.
IMO their luster complemented the powdery pastel of Queen Silvia's outfit to great effect.

Those pearls also complement the overall retro look of the Queen's outfit as well with the lace, the color and the seed pearls on her cloche-type hat. They're astoundingly large and lustrous; those teardrop earrings are just amazing. Thanks for posting and for the information, Boris.

Well it's NOT a family order in the Swedish case, it's simply a clasp or agraffe or a miniature, with the King's portrait in a diamond frame on the ice blue ribbon of the Order Of The Seraphim.

Normally in media coverege here in Sweden the commentators say that the portrait of the king shows that they are a ladies of the royal household and that they are on "duty" when they have it. Think they mean that it marks that it is à state event and not à private one

You are right that it's not an official family order, but it's considered as an inofficial one. The Swedish name is Kungens miniatyrporträtt (The king's miniature portrait) and there are at the moment eight ladies who are entitled to wear it: queen Siliva, crown princess Victoria, princess Madeleine, princess Lilian, and the king's sisters Margaretha, Birgitta, Désirée and Christina, I would guess that the four later ones have it with their grandfather's, Gustaf VI Adolf, portrait. Kungens miniatyrporträtt - Wikipedia
