This beautiful necklace and earrings from the British Royal Collection are part of a parure that also includes a brooch. Enamelled gold, pearls, rubies and emeralds are all featured. The dating of the pieces is very complicated as the various parts have different histories. The necklace is a composite. The oldest links date to the late sixteenth century. The central part and the star link to the left are younger c.1630. The other elements are of a later date.  The earrings were created in the nineteenth century.  A 1909 inventory in the Royal Collection, says the parure was given by Mary, Queen of Scots to Mary Seton, a devoted attendant and friend of Mary, Queen of Scots, during her years of her exile. She was also an excellent hairdresser. Mary Seton’s descendant, Alexander Seton, 6th Earl of Eglinton (d.1661), removed some of the links from the chain around 1612. The jewels then passed to the Hon. Elizabeth Seton when she married William Hay of Drummelzier in 1694. They left the Seton's when they were sold in 1894 at Christie’s on 22 February (lot 69) to Algernon Borthwick, 1st Baron Glenesk (1830-1908) whose daughter, Lilias Countess Bathurst (d.1965), presented the parure to Queen Mary on the occasion of King George V’s Silver Jubilee in May 1935. . . #jewelryhistory #Queen #maryqueenofscots #crown #QueenElizabethII #royal #royalty #pearl #ruby #emerald #gold #crownjewels #Queenmary #scotland #england #jewels #jewelry #princess #QueenElizabeth #jewelrygram #instajewelry #antiquejewelry #jewelryaddict #treasure #history #tudor #luxuryjewelry #jeweypics #ilovejewelry #instagood
Tried #QueenElizabethII #scones today and was pleasantly surprised. These ugly little things are very fluffy and super easy to make. They’re also sweeter than expected which makes them great for people who are unsure of the whole “scone” thing. I give this #recipe a 7/10 for ease of prep, taste and texture. I’m still searching for a more dense and moist scone rather than a fluffy one. #thegreatsconeadventure

HRH The Duchess of Sussex. I adore this photo of her.
Королева Елизавета II затроллила Дональда Трампа при помощи брошей 💥 Члены королевской семьи Великобритании не вмешиваются в политику и строго держат нейтралитет. Но Елизавета II знает, как высказать свое «фи», не нарушая протокол. Делает она это с поистине королевским достоинством — с помощью брошей. По украшениям Ее Величества можно понять, как она относится к тому или иному человеку. В день, когда Дональд и Мелания прилетели в Англию 13 июля 2018 г., Елизавета II встретилась с архиепископом Кентерберийским Джастином Уэлби и мусульманским священником Ахмадом ат-Тайебом. На мероприятие она надела брошь, которую бывший президент США Барак Обама и его жена Мишель подарили ей в 2011 году, во время последнего визита в Великобританию. Бывший президент Америки и его жена купили эту маленькую брошку в виде зеленого цветка в 2011 году в винтажном магазине Tiny Jewel Box в Вашингтоне. Украшение изготовлено в 1950-х годах из 14-каратного золота, бриллиантов и агата. Во второй день встречи с Дональдом и Меланией Трамп в Виндзорском замке королева выбрала бриллиантовую брошь, которую ее мать Елизавета Боуз-Лайон надевала на похороны своего мужа, короля Георга VI. Этот жест многие расценили как выражение неодобрения поведения и политики Трампа. После того, как Дональд Трамп выиграл выборы, Елизавета II не хотела с ним встречаться. Но полтора года спустя президент США и королева Великобритании все же познакомились. Интересно, что на встречу с Трампом Елизавета II пришла без обычного сопровождения — говорят, принц Чарльз и принц Уильям просто отказались жать руку Трампу из-за своей личной неприязни к нему. На заключительную встречу королева надела брошь "Снежинка Канады", которую ей подарил бывший генерал-губернатор Канады Дэвид Джонстон. Не исключено, что это сделано неслучайно на фоне обостренных отношений Трампа с нынешним премьером Канады Джастином Трюдо. #Политперсоны #Новости #QueenElizabethII #КоролеваЕлизавета #DonaldTrump #броши #семейныеценности #брошка #брошьизбисера #брошкамошка #handmade #ручнаяработа #брошьПитер #брошьназаказ #купитьброшь #брошьручнойработы #брошьhandmade #наширукинедляскуки #хэндмейд #хэндмейдукрашения #handmadeforever #назаказ #BroshkaMoshka
Get ready: the Duke and Duchess of Sussex may be heading stateside next year. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are rumored to already be planning a trip to the U.S. for spring 2019. There's no agenda yet and Kensington Palace has not commented on the potential trip. However, the palace source says the Sussexes are eyeing stops at New York, Washington, D.C., and California (Meghan’s home state). This would mark the couple's first trip to the states post-wedding. 🇺🇸 We’ll see!!!

This beauty has been all over the news for the past few days. “The Governor-General of Canada, David Johnston, presented The Queen with the Sapphire Jubilee Snowflake Brooch from Canada. The brooch recognizes Her Majesty's Sapphire Jubilee in 2017, marking 65 years on the throne. Appropriately, it does so with sapphire stones. The sapphires contained in the brooch come from a deposit of sapphires discovered in 2002 on near Kimmirut on Baffin Island by brothers Seemeega and Nowdluk Aqpik. Coming from Canada's only known deposit of sapphires, these Beluga sapphires are stones that have a natural blue color that does not require heat to enhance. The brooch includes 48 sapphires of varying sizes, shapes, and colors, weighing 10.19 carats in total. The blue stones are arranged with the darkest blue colors at the center, surrounding a diamond dome. The sapphires fade into lighter colors as they approach the edge of the brooch, creating an ombré effect. The stones are surrounded by more than 400 diamonds from northern Canada, weighing 4.39 carats in total, and the brooch is set in 18K Canadian white gold. The design, inspired by the Canadian Arctic, is a one-of-a-kind snowflake shaped like the North Star. The brooch was designed and crafted by Hillberg & Berk.” -from www.queensjewelvault.blogspot.com #brooch #queenelizabethII #sapphirejubilee #jewelry #jewellery #canadian
