The Russian Sapphire Cluster Brooch is now in the possession of the British royal family, it is similar to this brooch on the left. But different in size and cut!!!
Camilla’s brooch was the Russian Sapphire Cluster Brooch, previously worn by the late Queen Elizabeth II. The amazing brooch features a large central sapphire surrounded by 18 diamonds, separated from the central gem by an intricate gold filigree.
This was one of the numerous jewels that Queen Elizabeth II inherited from her grandmother, Queen Mary, in 1953. She bought it in 1934, and it was described a magnificent brooch with a sapphire stone as big as a wren’s egg, surmounted by large diamonds.
But for years it was „lent“ and in the jewel casket of the Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother still in the year 2014, the first time which it was used by Queen Elizabeth II.
note: Another Sapphire brooch with a double row of diamond was in the vault of the Queen Mother – this was later given to Diana Princess of Wales.
