HM Queen of Thailand

SAPPHIRE PARURE


1. HRH Princess Consort Suvaddana, fourth wife of HM King Prajadhipok (Rama VI)

A sapphire tiara, which can also be worn as a necklace. The tiara/necklace belonged to a European Nobleman, and was acquired by HM King Rama V on his visit to Europe, as a present for HM Queen Sri Bajarindra (The younger sister of the current King Bhumibol's grandmother). The necklace was made in a European design by a Thai jeweller to match the tiara for HM Queen Sri Bajarindra. The Suite also encompasses a large bracelet/brooch of similar design.

This piece has been worn by Queen Sri Bajarindra, but also by her daughter in law, HM Queen Indrasakdi Sachi, wife of HM King Vachiravudh (Rama VI)

2. HRH Princess Galayani (sister of King Bhumibol) wears the sapphire tiara as a necklace

3. HH Princess Sudasiri Sobha with the necklace, Princess Sudasiri is the daughter of His Royal Highness Prince Chudadhuj Dharadilok, who was the 72nd child of His Majesty King Chulalongkorn and the 8th child of Her Majesty Queen Sri Bajarindra.

DIAMOND & RUBY TIARA

A glamourous picture of Queen Sirikit, who is wearing a diamond and ruby tiara. The rubies can be replaced with diamonds, as she did during the State Visit to the Netherlands in 1960.

I like the diamojnd tiaras, but I'm not too sure about alot of the "stone" necklaces they're a bit too big and gaudy for my liking.

I think that the way the pieces are worn by the Brunei women have alot to do with it as well. The royal women wear sooo much jewerly that it's difficult (for me at least) to truly "appreciate" a piece. While in this thread the Queen tastefully wears her jewelry, it isn't very overwhelming. One can appreciate each piece of a parure.

Agreed. All the loud colours don't help the Brunei women either, but then we all have our own concepts of what is beautiful. Still, I find a lot of their pieces too 'chunky', and not delicate looking at all.

The Queen Sri Bajarindra Diamond Necklace

(HM Queen Sri Bajarindra ,King Rama V's Regent Queen)
The picture above shows Queen Sri Bajarindra wearing three strands of the diamond necklace. Only one of the strands seems to have passed onto the present Royal Family. It is unknown where the other two went to, but most possibly to one of her sons.
1. HM Queen Sri Bajarindra wearing the diamond necklace
2. Three strands of the diamond riviere necklace
3. HM Queen Sirikit with the Queen Sri Bajarindra necklace

Queen Sri Bajarindra's Pearls and Diamonds
Her Majesty's love of pearls and diamonds are legendary. It is said that she had numerous ropes of pearls, and gave them out to anyone that she felt deserved a reward. This natural pearls and pear-shape diamond drops necklace was her favourite, and was left to one of her sons after her death.

Other Royal Jewel

King Prajadhipok's Emerald Belt ( King Rama VII )
Thai tradional women's costume normally requires an elaborately jewelled belt. In this case, the king's full costume that involves the full regalia also includes a belt. This belt probably belonged to HM Queen Sri Bajarindra, but I haven't yet found a photograph of the queen wearing it. HM Queen Sirikit has worn it on several occasion, though not of late.

Other Royal Jewel

The Thai-style Tiara
Tiaras were common in Europe but were only introduced to Siamese Royals during King Rama V's reign, probably after his travels in Europe. Though King Rama V's queens and consorts were in pocessions of some beautiful tiaras, they were only worn as necklaces. The photographs of tiaras being worn by Thai Royal ladies were of the Princess Sri Rattanakosin, King Rama V's daughter, and the Princess Consort Indrasakdi Sachi, Rama VI's consort.

Queen Sirikit's Other Diamond Pieces

Picture no#1

Diamond Chandelier Earrings - a favourite of late. I assume that this picture was taken in the 1980s, and the earrings haven't been seen since. Lately , the queen has again worn the earrings to many functions in Thailand.

Picture no#2

A Modern Diamond Necklace - this piece was seen during one of the Queen's visit to the US in the late 1990s. It hasn't been seen recently.

Picture no#3

A Diamond Cluster Necklace - this piece haven't been seen at all in recent days.
