Re: Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. Probably wearing the 2 large sapphire brooches
Congratulations to Beth and PaulP !
It is indeed the oval sapphire brooch worn as a clasp to her indian pearls ! (also worn by Princess Diana)
Congratulations once again !
Last but not least these indian pearls must have been her most expensive pearl necklace.
She has worn these pearls for the most important events of her life.
I noticed that PaulP, one of the commentators on The Court Jeweller site, has identified an occasion in 1957 when QEQM looks to be wearing the two large sapphire brooches at once. One is as a brooch and the other is as a clasp to her pearls. For PaulP's comment scroll down at https://www.thecourtjeweller.com/2021/11/the-night-princess-diana-wowed-at-the-white-house.html#more-35686
The video he refers to is on the Royal Family channel see
Below are some stills. I cannot make up my mind, but this is not one of the clasps I have seen previously.
What do others think?
