Once they belong to them, of course they will be free to do so, with the exception of those designated [like the Kent Amethysts and the Oriental Circlet & others] as Heirlooms 'to be worn by future Queens 'in right of it', by Queens Victoria, Alexandra & Mary, which I imagine will remain as presently set.

Birthday Jewels: Queen Elizabeth II | The Court Jeweller

She has one of the most beautiful jewellery collection I have ever seen. Absolutely breathtaking and wondrous.

At yesterday's State Banquet for the Mexican President HM wore Queen Alexandra's kokoshnik tiara again. If my count is correct, she hasn't worn it since the South African SV in 2010.

In the videos posted on the SV thread you can see the enormous glitter of this wall of diamonds, it's amazing!

For the first time I have to say I do not like HM's hair with this tiara. Queen Alexandra's Kokoshnik tiara, unlike the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland, is heavier and totally unforgiving and somehow she looks to have ended up with white Micky Mouse ears. Then again perhaps it is just the camera angle . . .

That is how she wears her hair. No other way, plain and simple. She looks stylish and lovely during the day, but at dinners she has taken to wearing the same white sack and whatever tiara. It is a pity.

The Queen and her dressers used to put more thought into her dresses for State Banquets, but since she's got older, the variety of colors and styles have stopped. She just stick to all white, perhaps gold or silver once in a blue moon. I think she's now leaving the style and colors to the younger generation.

First- That aquamarine tiara in 2009- Wow! Gorgeous!
Second- I'm with you MARG. Looks really odd.
Third- Love the photo of HM and Phillip. And love the first lady's gala dress.

Royal Jewel Rewind: Queen Elizabeth II's Wedding Jewelry | The Court Jeweller

Her ring is my all time favorite engagement ring. Her wedding jewels were so stunning as well. The tiara is so elegant and timeless.

Lovely....... though might it be time for a younger member of the family to use them now?
