This is one of my all time favorites from the Queen. It's very stunning and a beautiful color.

Weelll, it's the shape that gives it it's name . . . Art Deco, and oh I have serious brooch envy . . .

To think it's just been sitting in the vaults for years. You know your brooch collection is ginormous when you have stuff like this going unworn.
Well, it wasn't quite "unworn". It was retained by the Queen Mother after the death of the King and it was one of her favourite brooches. I think the Queen would have found it a little difficult to wear immediately after her death.

Then, I don't like Art Deco...

But, on the diamonds and aquamarines themselves, we can agree, gorgeous, utterly fabulous depth of colour.

I love Art Deco. I think QE2 has some amazing aquamarine Art Deco pieces.

It is indeed. Prince Albert's brooch is magnificently gorgeous and just plain eye-popping. I can see why it's a pretty regular favourite with HM. The sheer size of the diamonds surrounding the sapphire is awesome. Oh dear, more envy I fear . . .

I loved the sapphire brooch too. I can add amazing taste in jewels to reasons why I admire Prince Albert.

The Queen is left less than impressed with 'stylised' portrait of George VI on Berlin visit | Daily Mail Online


Am I right in thinking the brooch HM has on today (in white, yellow and pink gold) is the one used in Paris as well? Also, was there any information in the public domain as to its provenance?

QE2 purchased some Andy Warhol prints of herself, at great expense, in the last few years. So, I don't think she has a propensity to avoid abstract art of herself. It says a lot that she was not thrilled by the portrait.
