As the world bids farewell to the late Queen Elizabeth II today, I’m sharing a few details about some of the significant jewelry pieces worn for her state funeral. The women of the British royal family paid tribute to the memory of the late Queen by wearing appropriate, beautiful jewelry pieces, several of which had important symbolic resonance.
As Queen Elizabeth II is laid to rest today, I thought it was an appropriate moment to reflect on some of the last sparkling jewels that she wore during her remarkable life and reign. I’ve chosen some of the most iconic final jewelry moments from the late monarch. (If I’ve missed any you enjoyed, or if I’ve made any errors in my calculations, drop a note in the comments!)
Our retrospective on the remarkable life of Queen Elizabeth II draws to a close today with one final moment of sparkle and glitter: the unprecedented Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
