Alas, this is my least favourite of all her tiaras. The stones are gorgeous though.

But they are white and light blue as the Order of Isabella the Catholic.
Princess Anne wore aquamarines too. Well done.

Altho' they are the Colours of the Order of Isabella the Catholic.. HMQ wore the Golden Fleece this evening !
The Diamond Kokoshnik would nave been better [altho' i'm sure its heavy..] Otherwise the GGBI would have 'done' better than the Aquamarines...

I was pleased to present the Sapphire Jubilee Snowflake Brooch to Her Majesty The Queen to mark 65 years of her reign.

Wow, that's a stunning gift for The Queen to celebrate her Jubilee. I'm sure she loved and appreciated the gift. I think The Queen and Catherine has received great pieces of jewelry from Canada.

That is one exquisite piece of jewelry and so fitting for not only the Queen's sapphire anniversary on the throne but also to represent 150 years of Canada.

I love the snowflake design.

I have always loved HM's brooch collection and admired the way she uses them for "nods" to particular places, events, etc. But in all honesty, there are very few that evoke a visceral response in me. This Snowflake does that, the way it is designed is the result of a true artist and the selection of the stones the work of a truly great gemologist.

I loved the deep blue of the central sapphires and thought they graduated to lighter and then aquamarine and on the end where the stones almost look opaque, I thought they were opals because of the flashes of fire.

Imagine my surprise to find that all the stones were all sapphires because they are nothing like any other sapphires I have seen. The clarity and colour variation is truly stunning and a wonderful example of nature's beauty. I think they are perhaps the most beautiful sapphires HM owns.

Sorry, big, clumsy and ugly. Should have been reset many years ago.
