Every year, the Queen resides at the Sandringham estate in Norfolk from the middle of December until the second week of February. Now that she's officially back in London, here's a roundup of some of the brooches we saw this Sandringham Season!

On Christmas Day, HM reached for a classic: her diamond cluster brooch with the vivid pink gemstone center. (More Windsor family Christmas jewels over here!)

It's not exactly a brooch worn in Norfolk, but we saw the Queen wear the Grima Ruby Scarab Brooch in her annual broadcast on Christmas Day. (More over here!)

HM wore one of her wedding gifts, the Golden Trellis Brooch, for church services at St. Mary Magdalene near Sandringham on January 6. (More on the brooch here!)

The Queen wore one of the most historic brooches in her collection, one of the Kent Amethyst Brooches, for church at St. Mary Magdalene on January 13. (More on the amethysts over here!)

For Sunday church services at St. Peter's in Wolfteron on January 20, the Queen didn't wear a visible brooch. Perhaps she pinned one to the green dress underneath her chic camel-colored coat?

On January 24, the Queen reached for a brooch she's had since she was a princess: the Sapphire Chrysanthemum Brooch. She wore the jewel for a Women's Institute meeting at the West Newton Village Hall. (More on the brooch here!)

A diamond and turquoise brooch from the collection of her grandmother, Queen Mary, was HM's choice for Sunday church services at St. Mary Magdalene on January 27. (We previously discussed the brooch here!)

Inclement weather sadly spoiled our brooch-spotting on February 10, when HM wore a raincoat over her outfit as she traveled to and from a church service at St. Mary Magdalene.

And, as per usual, the Queen didn't wear a brooch as she traveled by train back to London on Monday. Which brooch would you have paired with this outfit?
