Re the brooch worn by the Queen while lighting the first beacon at Windsor Castle.
It was produced & presented by the Goldsmiths' Company to mark the Platinum Jubilee.
Every website has jumped on the bandwagon, but I think it is worthwhile reading about it on the Goldsmiths' site.
Once again this is an occasion when the Queen has been able to choose from a selection of designs.
The Goldsmiths' Company has some superb photos.
It is interesting to read that two brooches were made. The one for the Goldsmiths' records/collection has a different hallmark to differentiate the two.
