Re: QEII Wide Art Deco Diamond and Ruby Bracelet
Edited by J-F on January 20, 2022, 10:37 am
I like this bracelet !
Not very elaborate, quite simple in design but large, bold, regal !
The earliest photo I have of the Queen wearing the bracelet dated from 1964. So, the 1962 photo posted here is the earliest I've seen.
The Greville provenance is very interesting and possible but I don't know.
It's not a beautiful piece but it is notable for it's impressive size!
It only occurred to me after I had posted that perhaps it could be a Greville jewel. The Art Deco date and its large size would fit the kind of jewels Mrs Greville had. And I think Beth found a press article reporting that Mrs Greville had several ruby bracelets?
