Diamonds are forever, hold one up and then caress it


The Diamond Diadem Tiara


The Coronation Necklace and Earrings


Queen Mary's Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara


The Delhi Durbar Tiara


Queen Victoria's Fringe Brooch


Queen Alexandra's Coronation Fan


Queen Alexandra's Kokoshnik Tiara


Queen Victoria's Small Diamond Crown


The Williamson Diamond Brooch

All this (and more) - and all the Cullinan Diamonds (bar those in the Crown Jewels) together for the very first time! [Read more about them in my erstwhile other half's Random Jottings of Madam Arcati blog]

This was an utterly stunning exhibition...

  1. Hi Dolores Delargo. Thanks for this great post with very nice photos of some of the Queen's diamonds. Seeing as you enjoy this sort of thing (which is my absolute passion), you might also enjoy my very unique blog on Barbie doll scale Crown Jewelry and Tiaras worn by doll royalty. Your input would be greatly appreciated. http://daniel-s-world.blogspot.com/

  2. SO SO JEALOUS! It killed me to be passing back through London and not have the chance to pop over to Buck House for all these terribly tempting sparklers.

    Wouldn't it be nice to have a great, big group of girls give you a nice, dressy tiara? Although, come to think of it, a great, big group of boys did once give me a pearl necklace. But that's another story...
