Today on the blog, we'll be covering some of the jewels worn by royals who attended Easter Sunday services this weekend. We're starting off with the jewels worn by the Windsors at St. George's Chapel, Windsor yesterday.

The Queen wore a glittering diamond and pearl brooch from her late mother's jewelry collection: the Courtauld Thomson Scallop-Shell Brooch. You can see clearer images of the brooch and read about its history in our previous post on the piece.

We'll cover the rest of the Windsors in the order they arrived to attend the service. Autumn Phillips wore sparkling drop earrings; Princess Eugenie of York wore delicate drop earrings and a large ring on her left hand. (But not on that finger, regardless of the engagement rumors.) As usual, Princess Beatrice of York didn't wear any visible jewels.

The Duchess of Cambridge wore the classic diamond and pearl earrings that are on loan to her from the Queen. Here's a link to a previous post on this pair, which was worn by the Queen at her Silver Jubilee in 1977.

Lady Louise Windsor, daughter of the Earl and Countess of Wessex, wore a necklace, but we only saw a hint of the delicate chain above the collar of her jacket.

Her mother, Sophie, wore a pair of pearl-look earrings from Dior made of crystals and resin beads.

And last (but never least), the Princess Royal wore pearls with her diamond-studded gold ribbon brooch.
