I think this photo shows jewels with a variety of diamond cuts

Given that we know some approximate dates for when the jewels worn by Queen Elizabeth II (seen in photo below) were constructed, I think the photo shows 3 different styles of diamond cuts.
Old Mine cut (and possibly rose) in the Diamond Cockade, Old European cut in the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland tiara, and modern brilliant cut in the Queen's necklace and earrings.
