The turquoise brooch was a wedding present to Princess Mary of Teck, future Queen Mary, from her parents-in-law, King Edward VII & Queen Alexandra, then Prince & Princess of Wales.
I saw the aigrette in Venice in 2018 where it was exhibited as part of the Al Thani Collection. It's really much larger that I thought and the workmanship is exquisite! The colour of the principal diamond was vivid, but it was too dark in the room to really appreciate the stone.“Eye of the Tiger” - 61.50 whiskey colored diamond mounted on the turban of Maharaja Ranjitsinhji of Nawanagar by Cartier in 1934.
Actually, Camilla's mother-in-law wore the earrings in November 2011 during the state banquet for President and Mrs. GulI don’t think I have seen a royal wear those earrings...perhaps Camilla?
Missy, she is so wonderful. I feel so trully blessed to have her as our HoS and not some of the alternitives other countries haveI just read her speech and it was uplifting and moving. What a wonderful person.
And yes just beautiful pieces that she is wearing. She should be a PSer.
I love the earingsQueen Mathilde at the 2016 state dinner in Tokyo. I know that this might come out very impolite but do the diamonds looked a bit like CZ? The cut of the round diamonds look too modern or something...
I love turquoiseQueen Mary’s diamond and turquoise brooch again. Too lovely!
Queen wore it on her 90th birthday celebrations in Windsor Castle
Agreed! I like this tiara but Charlene just doesn't seem to be into jewelry. Quite frankly, none of the Monegasque ladies are magpies.if only she would wear it !
(im don't like to critise the monarchy - its not how i was brought up)
but i wish this generation of royal ladies would wear slightly more bling,
no one is going to think they are a Kardashian
