The Monarch of the Commonwealth realms, as elegantly known – Queen Elizabeth II owns an extravagant collection of ancient historic jewels. Staying true to my roots, I came across this exquisite piece of Queen’s coronation necklace and earrings and couldn’t resist it one bit, – as they say ‘Diamonds are a girls best friend!’
It was strongly believed that every piece of her jewelry originated somewhere in the 16th century but this specific piece not just holds the weight but is also given utmost historic significance. Initially made for the beautiful Queen Victoria in 1858 – this exquisite statement piece has been donned by the queens for every coronation after Queen Victoria’s death, therefore the name states it all.
Created out of 26 stones – 25 placed on the necklace and one Lahore Diamond pendant of 22.48 carat. Matching earrings were made to compliment the entire set. These earrings were originally a part of the famous Koh-I-Noor diamond and both carry different sizes. Weird but true!
If you’ve missed the Queen wearing this world known piece – you could look out for her at the prestigious State Dinners or portraits.
I paired this up with a navy blue dress I picked up from Temt, Singapore. Love this dress as its easy to wear, flowy and depicts a semi casual look. You could don this outfit at a beach and feel free yet wear it for a glamorous dinner party throwing on some jewels like those. What say?
I’ve kept my make up quite simple here as I only wanted to highlight the Queen’s Jewels but I teamed it up with a red lip which never goes out of fashion. You could opt for a lighter hue if you’re donning it at a casual event or be it the beach. Your pick.
