Mehr als 300 Stücke umfasst die private Juwelensammlung der Queen,

Sammlung die z. T. bis auf Elisabeth I. zurück geht und die unglaublichen
Schätze von Königin Alexandra und Königin Mary beide
passionierte Juwelenliebhaberinnen beinhaltet.
Diademe von Königin Victoria ihrer Ur-Ur Grossmutter, Tiaras aus
der Familie Windsor, Geschenke des Zaren, der indischen Maharadschas,
Sultane, Scheichs, Könige, Fürsten und anderen Potentaten.
The Queen has a large collection of personal jewellery
which she wears on a range of public occasions. Some pieces have been
given to her as presents, either personal or official, to mark her 21st
birthday, her wedding or the Coronation. Others have been given to commemorate
State visits and Commonwealth tours and other official functions such
as the launching of ships. In addition, many items in her collection
were inherited, mostly from Queen Mary.
A final, smaller category is those pieces which The Queen herself has
bought or has had made from existing stones or pieces in her possession.
Of the many brooches owned by The Queen, some belonged to Queen Victoria
including a large sapphire set in twelve diamonds (given to Queen Victoria
by Prince Albert as a wedding present).
Some were inherited from Queen Mary - a brooch comprising two huge diamonds
(Cullinan III and IV) sometimes jokingly referred to as Granny's Chips.
There are also several diamond bow brooches, one of which, in the shape
of a lover's knot, is often used to pin a sash to The Queens shoulder
on evening dresses. Brooches were amongst the pieces given to The Queen
as 21st birthday presents, such as the flame-lily diamond brooch from
the children of Southern Rhodesia
A brooch in the form of a basket of flowers was a present from her parents
to mark the birth of her eldest son, Prince Charles. On the Coronation
tour of 1953-4
The Queen was presented with a diamond fern brooch by the women of Auckland
on her visit to New Zealand, and a brooch of white and yellow diamonds
forming a spray of wattle or mimosa by the government of Australia.
Among strings of pearls in the collection is a double string, a family
heirloom, which was a wedding present to The Queen from her parents.
It is now worn on informal evening occasions.
A triple string of pearls is often worn in the daytime, and was a present
to The Queen when she was a young girl from King George V.
