Elizabeth the Queen Mother’s Diamond Navette Flower Earrings are first seen in public on her in 1948, on the occasion of Pamela Mountbatten’s wedding.

The Diamond Earrings are one of the favorite jewels of Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.

Not sure but probably also from the Greville legacy.

Princess Margaret’s Cartier Ruby diamond flower head Brooches| Royal Jewel History

King George VI also bought a matching brooch in rubies for Princess Margaret

Princess Margarets Cartier Ruby and Diamond Flower Head Brooches Gift from her FatherKing George VI  - Ruby Flower Head Brooch In 1942 King George VI gave his daughters matching brooches from Cartier. The brooch given to Queen Elizabeth II was set with sapphire and the brooch given to Princess Margaret was set with rubies. Each of the girls later received a second matching brooch. Princess Margaret wore the gifts often in the first few years after they were received but they later fell out of favor for larger more glittering pieces.

In 1979 Princess Margaret decided to sell seven pieces of jewelry at Sotheby’s.  it was speculated she was struggling financially while a spokesman for her insisted they were simply old pieces she didn’t wear anymore and wanted to get rid of.  “An attractive pair of gold, ruby and diamond Clips, each designed as a flowerhead, the centre set with a cluster of cushion-shaped rubies and brilliant-cut diamonds, by Cartier, London

Queen Mother’s Carved Rock and Diamond Art deco Brooch Pendant| England Great Britain| Royal Wedding Gift in 1923

A mystery is solved.

Long time, nothing was known about the history of Elizabeth the Queen Mothers, carved rock crystal art deco brooch.

The eagle-eyed Frank had sent me a note from the August 1923 about Queen mother’s style.

And an earlier press story was found, from the May, one month after the royal wedding.

In the splendid year of 1923, a momentous occasion unfolded as Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyons, the destined Duchess of York, was graced with an array of resplendent treasures to embellish her wedding. Among these treasures, a remarkable Art Deco Pendant Brooch shone with unparalleled brilliance.

Elizabeth the Queen Mother’s Carved Rock and Diamond Art deco Brooch Pendant| Royal Wedding Gift in 1923 later worn by the Duchess of Cornwall Camilla, the Queen.

During the enchanting month of May in that very year, the spotlight of the press was cast upon a distinctive trend inaugurated by the Duchess of York – a trend that would captivate the realm of fashion.

A pendant of exquisite square-shaped crystal emerged as the centrepiece, its delicate contours accentuated by an almost imperceptible rim of onyx adorned with diamonds. This captivating pendant, suspended by an ornate loop that echoed its elegance, hung gracefully from a black moiré ribbon interlaced with crystal beads, all united by a platinum chain of utmost sophistication.

Among the trove of gifts bestowed upon the royal bride, a novelty of striking originality emerged – a purse of singular design. Its circular form, enveloped in ebony moiré, boasted a circumference bejeweled [with probably useable with that brooch ),that sparkled like stars.

That pendant brooch could be used also as: onyx and carved crystal clasp, a masterpiece of artistry, secured this objet d’art, which was further graced by its attachment to an onyx slave bangle.

In a realm where precious gems symbolize significant occasions, the Duchess of York ingeniously transformed her pendant into a resplendent headpiece, a magnificent homage to the grandeur of her visit to Australia during the illustrious Royal Tour of 1927.

As time waltzed on and the pages of history turned, the radiant reign of Elizabeth the Queen Mother drew to a close, but her legacy endured.

The carved rock crystal brooch, once worn with regal grace, found a new wearer upon the graceful form of Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. With remarkable frequency, this treasure adorned her on diverse royal occasions, etching its presence into the annals of history. It gleamed proudly on the grand stage of Queen Elizabeth II’s 60th reign jubilee, as well as during the dignified ceremonies of parliamentary openings, a silent testament to the enduring elegance that transcends generations.

Kent Diamond Brooch – Royal Rectangular Diamond Brooch

The wedding gift from Queen Mary to her daughter in law – Princess Marina of Greece, Duchess of Kent in 1934 and one of the principal presents was:

Rectangular diamond brooch with a ruby and diamond bow ornament diagonally across it>>

The brooch was not seen later in public, but Queen Mary was a collector of interesting jewels. Sometimes from her family or other heirlooms.

I believe the Duchess of Kent sold the brooch later without the double ruby bow, after the early death of the Duke of Kent, when she needs money, back to the royal family.

It is very similar to the brooch which was worn by Camilla, the Queen Consort at Royal Ascot 2023 and before at Christmas 2022 Sandringham.
