Lately I've become fascinated with Jade. Do any of the European Royal Families own fabulous Jade jewels?

I love the amethyst ones, I think it just such a beautiful jewel. But are there any Garnet ones? I rare see any garnet jewels in general, normal it's always ruby that gets used.

I too love Jade! Imperial jade is so beautiful, it looks like emerald cabachons. I don't know why they are no royal jewels in Jade. If you look on Christies or Sothebys auctions for good jade with diamonds, it is really expensive. Maybe they need some...

Question Royal Opal Jewelry

I´am a great friend of opal jewelry. My mother also ows some very nice opal pieces, but opals are damnd expensive!

I think Queen Elizabeth owns a great opal necklace which was a gift from australia (for her coronation?). Have anyone pictures of this necklace?

It's somewhere in Q. Elizabeth's thread. It was a gift along with a matching pair of earrings from Australia. It looks huge and I think it was said that she's never worn the set.

I was doing some reading. I think this is the Andamooka Opal, which weighs 203 carats. I've been looking for a photo but haven't had any luck... but I'm not one of the photo collectors here!

Found it. Go to the thread called Semi-Precious Royal Jewels, there's a link to it in Post 45, and there it is... in all its hideousness. Great for a geological specimen, not so good as a necklace!

Although I think the Australians were very generous in giving this piece to H.M., it's just too large to work well as a pendant on a necklace.

I like opals and it would be fun to see her wear a really nice-looking opal set.

Thanks for the great pictures.
I have also a question regarding pearl tiaras (..and I am not talking about the much discussed lovers knot tiara of princess diana...). Could someone please post some pictures here of different pearl tiaras still owned by royal families? Thanks.

I know many people are very fond of that tiara, but it leaves me cold. Especially at the Queens wedding with that veil !! It's so upright and it doesn't really conform to the head.

Opals

I have an opal ring from about 1900. No one in the family will wear it , I adore it but its an old setting and very feminine.... someday I will ask my intended wife to wear it I suppose. My family thinks they are bad luck.

My question is , in all forums , photos and readings , I dont see any opals or even a record of them in the mix? Do the royals ascribe to the curse of the opal too?
Even Wallis didnt go into the opal nad its mysteries...

Anyone know anything?

My understanding is that if you aren't born in October, you're not supposed to wear opals.

Actually, Thomas, just the opposite would be true -- at least in the United States. We can't import any Burmese rubies and have little access to them unless someone opens up a vault after 20 years of hoarding them. The largest Burmese I have found (I collect gemstones) was 2.58 carats and I couldn't afford it!!! I do have a lovely 3.12 Thai. It was very expensive too.
