Queen Elizabeth’s Favorite Jewels

Queen Elizabeth has one of the most extensive jewelry collections in England, but she still believes in attractive basics for her style. She has been passing on her style to the family, just as previous royalty has done to her. Queen Elizabeth wears a pair of pearl and diamond earrings she inherited from Queen Mary, which Queen Mary first received as a wedding gift in 1893. Here, she is seen wearing her pearl and diamond earrings along with her triple strand pearl necklace. Her brooch originally belonged to Queen Victoria, and dates back to the 19th century. Pearls are a staple in her jewelry ensemble, and she is never seen without her pearls at daytime events.

According to The Adventurine, Meghan Markle wore pearls to her first official solo outing, gifted to her by Queen Elizabeth. Markle's pair was strikingly similar to the monarch's--just smaller. The diamond and pearl earrings aligned perfectly with Markle's polished style and custom Givenchy dress.


Kate wore the same pearls as Markle when she gave birth to Prince Louis. The pearls signified the commemoration to the royal family and England on the day Prince Louis entered the world. The pearls are strikingly similar to Queen Mary’s Button Earrings (shown below), which are natural pearls that precede the introduction of cultured pearls. Since Kate has gained a deeper understanding of the royal family history, her jewelry collection has become more elegant and representative of her status as royalty.



The jewels are a thread line through the generations of the Majesties. The everlasting jewels are not simply daily accessories and embellishments, they are heirlooms that represent the history of the British Royal Family. The Queen’s vast assortment of jewels comes from those who reigned before her, and are also known as a collection that Princess Diana, for example, wore in great style.


The tiara worn by Meghan Markle at her wedding is another piece of jewelry that resides in the royal family estate.


The bandeau was originally created for Queen Mary, and the brooch was designed and given to Princess Mary in 1893 by the County of Lincoln as a gift for her wedding to  Prince George, Duke of York. In 1953, both the brooch and the bandeau were willed by Queen Mary to Queen Elizabeth II. Queen Mary’s sentiment reflects how jewelry is a part of representing the royal family, and how this representation of the royal family is deeply rooted in their history.
