Queen Elizabeth’s Diamonds

A few days ago, on the 21st of April, Queen Elizabeth had her 91st birthday! This is a great occasion to remember two of the most incredible diamond pieces she owns and she has ever worn: Her diamond tiaras!

Funny fact: According to tradition, the Crown Jewels never leave England, so when the Queen travels to another country she will wear one of several tiaras from her personal collection.

Queen Mary’s Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara

The tiara is circular in form with diamonds pave set in silver and gold. Originally the tiara had 14 large oriental pearls at each top; in 1914 Queen Mary adapted the tiara to use 13 large diamonds instead of the pearls for a slight change. The tiara can also be worn as a necklace. Queen Elizabeth is often seen in this tiara in the images on the paper currency and coins of Great Britain.

The George IV State Diadem

The George IV State Diadem was made in 1820 for the coronation of King George IV. The diadem includes 1333 diamonds, including a four-carat yellow diamond and 169 pearls, the circular frame alternates between crosses and a floral design which incorporate roses, thistles and shamrocks which are the symbols of England, Scotland and Ireland. The diadem is one of the most easily recognizable items of the collection since it is worn by Queen Elizabeth in the image on the postage stamps, coins and currency of England; it is also worn in the annual procession from Buckingham Palace to the State Opening of Parliament.

the tennis bracelet

The meet tennis bracelet.
Following the Sunday tennis match between the two legends, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal..
we thought it would be a perfect occasion to introduce some of our finest…tennis bracelets.

They are thin, super stylish pieces of wrist jewelry that feature a symmetrical pattern of diamonds.


The name Tennis Bracelet is related back to when Chris Evert, a professional tennis player from 1972 to 1989, lost her designer diamond bracelet during a match at US Open.
The clasp that was on her diamond bracelet snapped,
fell off and she asked the game officials to pause the tennis match until her jewelry could be found.
From that day, the line diamond bracelet has been called the tennis bracelet.
Many tennis stars such as Serena Williams continue to wear one.
