The Platinum Jubilee celebrations are nearly upon us, and you knew we’d be joining in the festivities here at The Court Jeweller! Along with coverage of the events, we’re spending the next ten afternoons counting down ten of the Queen’s most magnificent platinum jewels. We’re kicking things off with one of the most important early platinum additions to her collection: the Flame Lily Brooch.
On Saturday, an important exhibition of aristocratic and royal tiaras will open at Sotheby’s in London. Among the examples on display is a familiar jewel from the collection of the Duke and Duchess of Kent—and it seems that the tiara may be offered for sale as well.
We’ve been chatting often lately about the brooches that belonged to the late Queen Mother, and today, we’ve got one that’s perfect for springtime: the Ark Royal Flower Brooch.
