Queen Elizabeth has soooooooooooooooooo many jewells Shocked Shocked Shocked    I am sooooo jealous.   hiss


  

I think she is not even wearing half of the tiaras and diamonds she posesses queeny

exhibition of royal jewells
http://i1207.photobucket.com/albums/bb473/Royal_Gossip/Royal_Jewelry_and_Tiaras/british-crown-jewels-1960.jpg



   Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara  
  
One of Queen Elizabeth’s favourite pieces of jewellery is the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara which is also referred to as “Granny’s Tiara”. It was a wedding gift to Elizabeth by her devoted grandmother Queen Mary in 1947 along with a number of other pieces. However the tiara had originally been given to Princess Mary of Teck (later Queen Mary) as a wedding present in 1893 by a committee started by Lady Eve Greville.



     Delhi Durbar Tiara    
    
Camilla + Queen Mary http://i1207.photobucket.com/albums/bb473/Royal_Gossip/Royal_Jewelry_and_Tiaras/CamillaMary_DurbarTiara.jpg
The circle of brilliant-cut diamonds mounted in gold and set in platinum was made by Garrards in 1911 and Queen Mary wore it in Delhi to mark the start of King George V's reign as King and Emperor of India.
It was lent to the Queen Mother for her visit to South Africa and remained with her but she is not believed to have worn it subsequently.
The tiara previously included five of the Cambridge cabochon emeralds and also was occasionally worn with two diamonds from the Cullinan stone. But the emeralds were removed by Queen Mary and made into another tiara now owned by the Queen - the diamonds were kept separately as a brooch.



Queen Alexandra's "Rundell" tiara
http://www.royal-magazin.de/england/queen-alexandra/alexandra-rundell-tiara.htm
(people say it got "lost" when Queen Alexandra died without a testament and her jewellery was split between her many children)



This is an amazing saphire parure (which would have looked great with Kate's blue engagement dress+ring. BUT of course we would have stoned the lazy gold digger if she wore it to the engagement interview -and also because she had no right)
http://i1207.photobucket.com/albums/bb473/Royal_Gossip/Royal_Jewelry_and_Tiaras/QE2_saphire-parure.jpg




The Queen Mother's Scroll Tiara


http://i1207.photobucket.com/albums/bb473/Royal_Gossip/Royal_Jewelry_and_Tiaras/QueenMoms-tiara.jpg


It was one of a handful of tiaras that the Queen Mother wore after she was married but before she ascended the throne in 1937.  As far as I know only  Queen Elizabeth’s younger sister, Princess Margaret used to wear her mother’s elegant headpiece in a state banquet at Buckingham Palace in 1954. Nearly 20 years later, Princess Anne wore it for her visit to Australia and New Zealand in 1970.

This 1936 Cartier tiara was loaned to Kate Middleton to her wedding with William by the Queen and contains 1,000 glittering diamonds





Sophie, The Countess of Wessex Wedding Tiara

 http://www.diamondtiaras.com/sophiewedtiara.htm



The Fife Tiara
it's amazing, but I'm not sure if it is in the posession of the BRF royalguard
Given to Princess Louise of Wales (daughter of KIng Edward VII and Queen Alexandra) on her marriage by her husband the Duke of Fife.





I love this site:

I'm more than sure that Kate is already looking at these jewels and rubbing her greedy hands in glee, while Carole and Pippa pick out what they want to wear.

I know  ick

The Fife is not part of the vaults anymore although that piece is incredibly beautiful. I love the BRF jewels much more than the jewels from the other RFs especially because we don't really know what their vaults have.

^Thanks Alex, I forgot.
I wish we would know what is in their vaults. There are so many tiaras and diamonds that haven't seen the light of day for a century.

like the wedding present in 1947 of Nizam-of-Hyderabad
http://i1207.photobucket.com/albums/bb473/Royal_Gossip/Royal_Jewelry_and_Tiaras/QE2_Nizam-of-Hyderabad-collection.jpg
http://i1207.photobucket.com/albums/bb473/Royal_Gossip/Royal_Jewelry_and_Tiaras/QE2_Nizam-of-Hyderabad.jpg
There was a rumor that this diadem was used to create the Burmese Rubin Diadem (see below). However no official information was released by the palace.
So here are the facts:
The Queen hasn't worn the tiara publicly since about the early 1952.
Leslie Field says in The Queen's Jewels about the Burmese ruby tiara's creation: "The diamonds came from a tiara the Queen had been given as a wedding gift by the Nizam of Hyderabad and Berar." (p.69, 1987 ed.) This statement is the main source of the dismantling rumors.
However, in Tiaras: A History of Splendour, Geoffrey Munn does not include that detail in his description of the Burmese ruby tiara. He writes only briefly of the Nizam piece, saying: "There is also a tiara in bandeau form that was a wedding gift from the Nizam of Hyderabad," implying by use of the present tense that the piece still exists. (p. 1965, 2003 printing)
In honor of the 60th wedding anniversary of the Queen and Prince Philip, Buckingham Palace's 2007 summer exhibition included a selection of wedding gifts. On display: the necklace, but not the tiara.  Indeed, no mention of the tiara was made.

The Fife is one of the most amazing tiaras ever! But doesn't belong to the BRF and never did. Despite being owned by Princess Louise, it belongs to her husband's family.

KUEI FEI - The sight of KM wearing ANY of Queen Mary's tiaras and other jewellery will come second only to the sight of them on the balcony of Buckingham Palace that will churn up my stomach, and send me in despair to the Republicans.

Even worse would be the knowledge that Carole and Pippa are trying them on and parading around inside the palace.
I don't think they would dare attempt to wear them outside in public.  I don't think that would be allowed no matter how much Willy kicks up a fuss on behalf of his beloved surrogate family. 

I read quite recently that on her return from her hols, HMQ closeted herself with an aide Angela Kelly and a courtier and they were assisting her in cataloging the jewels.  This work has now been transferred to a special file online, available only to the royals,  so they can be seen and identified at a glance, and kept track of.

On a Royal Jewels Message Board photographs of all the tiaras were reproduced in colour and a quiz was held, or actually two.
One was a quiz to choose what members thought would be a "gift" for her to wear at functions, and one was a bridal tiara to wear on the day of her wedding (ugh).
The Strathmore tiara was, I think the winner with the fringe tiara running it a close second, but I doubt that that would be used because it is for the women of the RF, who are born to it, HMQ, Princess Anne, which is why I hope Zara will wear it and continue the tradition.  It would suit her IMO.

As a matter of interest Charles like to keep all the jewels of the QM so that Camilla can enjoy that association. I doubt he would be happy for KM to share that treasure trove and its association.

Some photos of Queen Mary:

Here she is using the Cullinan I and II as brooch and the Cullinan III and IV attached to the necklace.

http://i1085.photobucket.com/albums/j421/melpe4/BRF%20Jewels/2747104810094285158CRkLuH_fs1.jpg

The brooch made by the the Cullinan III and IV is the most valuable item that QEII has.  Shocked

This tiara was made in 1925. It was given as a wedding present to Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon. S

It is a tiara with papyrus-shaped mounts framed in scrolls separated with palmettes. The diamond trails arch above, surmounted by diamonds and a pearl.

The emerald tiara in those pics isn't the Iveagh Tiara, this one is the Iveagh Tiara

The emerald tiara is your pics is the "Queen Victoria Emerald and Diamond Tiara" and was last seen in 1997, in an exhibition. In 2002 there was an exhibition of tiaras and there was shown 4 designed by Prince Albert but the emerald tiara wasn't present, it is said that been sold and subsequently dismantled by its new owner. If true, it's almost a crime because it's a true piece of art...

Probably Queen Mary wore it as a loan or something. She was an expert in "borrowing" pieces of art and jewelery that she liked...

Found a loveley pic of the Hartcourt emerald an diamond tiara, which was sold apparently.
It's not a royal piece exactly but it's sooo lovely!  sigh

A magnificent tiara worn at the coronation of both King George VI in 1937 and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in 1953.
The beautiful Harcourt tiara was worn at the 1937 coronation of King George VI by the Dowager Viscountess Harcourt, in the picture above, dressed in her robes for the coronation of George VI with the emerald and diamond tiara on her head and the Harcourt necklace made for her by Cartier in 1920.
Her daughter, Lady Ashburton, later wore the same tiara at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. Lady Ashburton was the elder sister of William, Second Viscount Harcourt. She married the Hon. Alexander Baring, later sixth Baron Ashburton, in 1924, the father of the present owner.
The exquisite tiara is composed of sprays of diamond flowerheads and leaves running between borders of continuous diamond ribbon motifs with the focus centring on seven outstanding emeralds. The tiara was worn by the Dowager Viscountess together with the ‘Harcourt Emeralds’ – a magnificent emerald and diamond necklace.  The emeralds themselves have a fascinating provenance: they originally descended from Mary Hayes Burns, the sister of the banker J. Pierpont Morgan, to her daughter Mary, who married Lewis, first Viscount Harcourt, in 1899. The tiara dates from their wedding.
