    This book was published as part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations in 2012, and yes it is phenomenal! Just close your eyes and ignore the price tag when you order it...trust me...it is worth every penny!!

    I may have shared this a few pages back, but I periodically check in on this blog to see the royal jewels in action by the various family members who are lucky enough to don them. There are also a few ‘catalogs’ showing the various jewels in the Queen’s bling-arsenal with history and who has worn it where/when.

    I may have to put that book @kgizo posted above on my wish list for our upcoming anniversary, as the traditional 1 yr anniversary gift is ‘paper’, right? :whistle:

    You can also look at orderofsplendor.blogspot.com. It is done by the same person. She is not doing any new posting for a while due to personal reasons, but it has some amazing pictures and is a good way to lose yourself in pretty sparkly things.

    I love the Duchess' morganite earrings! I wish there was a necklace to go with them!

    Queen Mathilde's earrings remind me of Princess Eugenie's wedding earrings.

    Not sure if anyone has previously posted this, but I stumbled upon it a few days ago while laid up sick and resting/recuperating. It’s an interesting, thorough accounting of many royal family tiaras with historical tidbits that I found fascinating. I only made it through the UK’s Royal Main line so far, but it has other countries/royal families represented as well. Thought it might make for interesting perusal by others. :wavey:

    Meghan markle’s official portrait is out. Does anyone know what the crown and other jewelry she is wearing in it? The necklaces look really old and the crown was not the one shore wore for her wedding.

    Definitely NOT an official portrait. There would be a statement from Kensington if there was.

    Lalla Salma was such a pleasure to see at official events. The way she would incorporate jewels into her caftans was amazing. I miss seeing her since the divorce.

    I, too, love this brooch. The detail is fabulous and I t looks great with her coloring. I’ve seen pics of her wearing it with pale lavender to royal blue to deep purple and the sapphire seems to color shift with what she wears. Not sure if it is a color change stone or if it is like when someone wears a certain color their eyes look more blue/green/brown/etc. Like princess Eugenie with the emerald tiara bringing out the green/hazel in her eyes. I just went full circle :lol:
