Back to Queen Noor. On the Queen Noor Jewelry thread, post #58 shows her wearing gold bands on her left hand, but a big round diamond on her right hand. Do Jordanian women wear engagement rings on their right hand? I know that some countries do that. In America we were both engagement and wedding rings on our left hand. The diamond looks like what an American would choose as an engagement ring. Or is this just simply a beautiful diamond ring she would choose to wear as a right hand ring? Some women here in America wear diamonds everyplace they can! I was just wondering if she chose to wear an engagement ring, but on a different hand?

Already posted several times - but since this is one of my alltime favourite as engagement ring - I thought I do it again.

Does anyone have a picture of the engagement ring of Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, later Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother?

I'm watching "Bertie & Elizabeth" on YouTube and it looks as though she is wearing a diamond solitaire as her engagement ring. I just am not sure if that is historically accurate.

That may not be accurate, in The King's Speech Queen Elizabeth wears a sapphire & diamond ring (oddly similar though not the same as Diana/Kate's).

I am quite certain (but cannot verify!) that Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon had either a cushion cut/square-ish sapphire surrounded by diamonds - so yes it would have similar to Kate's engagement ring. For some reason in later years the Queen Mother wore a large pearl surrounded by diamonds.

I've searched for a picture in Google but haven't found one (for the Queen Mother's engagement ring.)

Warren is usually the best source for pics and knowledge of jewels IMO. But I'll check some of my royal jewellery books.

OK, there is currently a photograph on the Hello! Magazine website showing the Queen Mother when she was younger and you can just see her enagement ring (not too clearly mind you!). The photograph is in the article about what wedding tiara Kate will where and it's picture number three.

I've been searching all of my old magazines and photos my grandmother kept but I'm not finding anything yet either as far as an engagement ring for the Queen Mother.

Thanks for the photos Bobby. I follow your post on another royal jewels forum. Didn't know you visited here. You are very knowledgeable.


Here's an mvid from YT..you can see a portrait of QEQM at :16 seconds that show the ring. At :56 it looks like she's wearing a different ring.

Oh well done! Thanks for posting these photos, they're much clearer than ones I found on the internet. To me, it seems that the engagement ring is a rather large emerald-cut sapphire with diamonds on either side not unlike the shape of the Duchess of Cornwall's engagement ring.

It's funny you mentioned about Queen Mother's bracelets. Her bracelets are gorgeous! It would be fun to flaunt them!
