The Crown, the Netflix series about the life of Queen Elizabeth II,
is back and is no doubt a success!
We love Royal Jewels….so here is a jewel-focused recap…!!
At the opening of the second season, the Queen wears the Cambridge Lover’s Knot Tiara together with the Duchess of Gloucester’s Pendant Earrings and Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee Necklace.
The tiara was created for Queen Mary and inherited by Queen Elizabeth II
who wore it earlier in her reign before loaning it to Diana, Princess of Wales.
The tiara is now back in The Queen’s vault and has been loaned to The Duchess of Cambridge, who debuted it in 2015.
One of the Queen’s frequently worn pairs of earrings are these ornately scrolled
frames of diamonds set in gold and silver with detachable pearl drop pendants.
In the series Queen Elizabeth II granted her husband, Philip, “the style and titular dignity of a Prince of the United Kingdom
of Great Britain and Northern Ireland” in 1957 where she wears the marvelous Queen Alexandra’s Kokoshnik Tiara.
This Russian style tiara, including 488 brilliants, was a present from
the Ladies of Society to mark the silver wedding anniversary of King Edward VII
and Queen Alexandra (then Prince and Princess of Wales) in 1888.
It was made to Alexandra’s request, and passed after her to Queen Mary and
then to the present Queen, who counts it among her favorite tiaras.
