My apologies that I am now too tired tonight to do more here. I will try to remember to do some posts tomorrow.
!. In a post about the Kent Amethysts I mentioned the marvellous find by Dave -- he found the video showing QEII wearing the amethyst necklace at a private function.
Congratulations & thank you Dave.

2. I have started to do a series of posts showing the tiaras worn by QEII.
This is based on the post done by Stefan to which Laurent F & Torkel also contributed.
I will mention your names in each of the posts.
These posts are meant to be a tribute to QEII, not posts detailing the history/origin of each tiara.
They will come in stages over the next few days.
To be able to include all the tiaras in a few posts (so people do not get bored with just seeing photos) I will include more than one tiara in some of the posts. Others, like the Diamond Diadem & the Girls of Great Britain & Ireland tiaras will have separate posts. In different ways each of those jewels said something significant about the the reign of QEII & her use of jewels -- so a separate post for each is warranted.
