This week’s Sparkling Spotlight posts are devoted to royal ladies celebrating birthdays in October. Today, we’re kicking things off with an incredible bejeweled appearance by Queen Saleha of Brunei, who celebrated her 75th birthday last week.
The Sultan of Brunei is one of the richest people in the world, so it should be no surprise that his wife is almost always dripping in astonishing jewels. To celebrate his Golden Jubilee in October 2017, she piled on the diamonds for a royal procession in Bandar Seri Begawan.
Queen Saleha wore a show-stopping diamond tiara during the procession. The tiara has a rather incredible pear-shaped stone as its centerpiece.
She also wore a whole lot of additional diamonds, including multiple brooch-style ornaments pinned to her gown, sparkling bracelets, and enormous rings on both hands.
The overall effect, combined with the golden shades of her clothing, was spectacular. The perfect effect for a Golden Jubilee!
