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...

Diamonds: A Jubilee Celebration


  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.

  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...

    1. Diamonds or pearls? Diamonds or pearls? The age old conundrum... Jx

  3. Oooooooooooohhhhh, shiiiiiiiinnnyyyyyyyy......... xxx

  4. We did plan to get some into our bag but it was too crowded :-) Jx
