It's Ladies' Day today at Royal Ascot, and the British royal women brought some major sparkle with them for the occasion.

The Queen wore a brooch from the collection of her late mother: the Centenary Rose Brooch.

The brooch, which is made of hand-painted rock crystal and set with 100 diamonds, was the Queen's gift to mark her mother's hundredth birthday in 2000. She inherited the brooch not quite two years later when the Queen Mother died.

She also wore a stack of bracelets and a gorgeous cocktail ring set with a blue stone, either an aquamarine or a blue topaz. (Sophie has a large collection of aquamarine/topaz jewels.)

Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie made their customary Ladies' Day appearance, but neither wore any significant jewelry. How would you accessorize these outfits?
