The untold story behind the queen’s expensive brooches

According to writer Leslie Field – author of The Queen’s Jewels, The Personal Collection of Elizabeth II, brooches are really one of the indispensable “pick items” to complete the queen’s outfit. She has about 98 different brooches in her collection, most of which are heirlooms or gifts from different countries. It is believed that they will be passed on to close family members after her death. Here is the meaning behind the 5 most famous brooches of the late British monarch.

In 1944, on her 18th birthday, then Princess Elizabeth was given this pair of blue brooches by her parents, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. The photo released by the British royal family just before the national funeral on September 19, 2022, is a portrait of the late queen with the famous Aquamarine Clip. Crafted from aquamarine stones and white diamonds, Elizabeth II’s brooch took shape in the hands of the Boucheron jewelers. These brooches mean so much to the queen, she chose to wear them on her engagement.

The brooch of the Russian Queen Marry is said to be one of the most historically valuable items Elizabeth II owned. Royal historian Ian Lloyd said the brooch, made in the late 19th century, was a gift from King Alexander III and Queen Marie of Russia to Princess Mary of Teck on the day she and George V were married in 1893. Queen Mary later gifted this brooch to her granddaughter Elizabeth in 1953. With its luxurious diamond-shaped design, this brooch is impressed by the ocean blue cabochon sapphire.

In 1938, Queen Elizabeth ordered jeweler Cartier a palm leaf brooch. Queen Elizabeth II inherited it after her mother died. Diamond Palm Leaf is inspired by the Kashmiri palm tree, similar to the paisley-pear flower motif. Accordingly, Paisley is a Scottish town – famous for its scarves with similar motifs in the 19th century. So this brooch can perfectly represent the Queen Mother, who comes from a Scottish aristocratic family.

The largest and most expensive of the late Queen of England’s brooches are Cullinan III and IV – with an estimated value of £50,000,000. When the world’s largest diamond was ever found, the Cullinan was cut into small pieces, and the jewelers of the Carrington & Co. used pieces III and IV – weighing 94.4 and 63.6 carats respectively – to put together a glittering brooch.

The Cullinan III and IV brooch, affectionately known as Granny’s Chips, were given to King Edward VII by the people of South Africa on his 66th birthday in 1907. The king later handed both stones to him. Queen Mary. Queen Elizabeth inherited it from her grandmother in 1953.

Another stone cut from the legendary Cullinan is a heart-shaped diamond called the Cullinan V, which weighs 18.8 carats. The Cullinan V was crafted by Garrard in 1911. According to Us Weekly, the Cullinan V Heart Diamond brooch is one of the late Queen’s most notable brooches. She regularly wears this brooch to various events, including London Fashion Week in February 2018.

Unlike many other heirloom brooches, Queen Elizabeth II designed the Centenary Rose brooch herself for her mother’s 100th birthday as a landmark gift. a hundred years). It is made of 100 diamonds as a symbol of the age of the Empress Dowager at the time and the image of Grandiflora Rose (a flower bred for the queen’s coronation in 1953) is hand painted on crystal stone.
