Re: QEQM's emerald palm tree brooch. Re-assessing origin
Thank you Franck. As you know my mind does not always work well and sometimes I miss things, so I thought I had missed a significant jewel. That is always possible as I have limited knowledge about all the various jewels.
I was referring to the emerald palm tree brooch...I wrote quickly.
Well spotted Franck! Now I can see that QEQM was wearing at her waist one of the emerald brooches which she had pinned over her pearls during the 1930s and later used as a hat ornament.
Brooches pinned over her pearls
Each brooch has 2 emeralds. Two emeralds can also be seen in the brooch at QEQM's waist in 1947.
Franck, you said that there is still an anniversary gift from King George VI to QEQM of an emerald and diamond brooch which has not been worn. What brooch are you referring to? I am perplexed.
