Patricia Treble, royal writer at Maclean’s, published an article yesterday that will be right up your alley: a birthday tribute to the brooch, the Queen’s favorite accessory. The article discusses numerous pieces from the Queen’s collection, including the Jardine Star Brooch worn yesterday in Windsor, the brooch from the crown ruby suite, and the Albert brooch. And, as icing on the cake, The Court Jeweller gets a few mentions here and there as well. Enjoy!
