Re: Queen Elizabeth Nigeria 2003 Sapphire Bracelet
Edited by Dave on June 9, 2021, 3:58 pm
I recall this picture and trip HM made to Nigeria. The Queen also wore some very girly jewels such as a golden heart shaped pendant. The jewels look like very sentimental and personal pieces and I doubt very much HM would have wanted to wear such personal belongings of someone else who may be spotted in them some time after her debuting them. I could be wrong however but I just can't see the Queen wearing jewels which may be dawned later by someone else, it would be just tasteless.
Forgive me if this has been mentioned before but I don't remember the sapphire bracelet being pointed out from the 3rd Dec 2003 CHOGM in Nigeria. Previous posts have concentrated on the necklace and earrings but the sapphire bracelet also looks like no other I have seen worn by QEII, and it is only logical if this is a demi-parure that it may include a bracelet to go with the necklace and earrings.
The best (but not good) image on Getty is as below but you have to zoom in on the bracelet.
