How’s this for a recipe for bejeweled splendor? A young, beautiful Queen Consort, a cache of sparkling jewels, a custom-made couture wardrobe, and a six-month world tour—all the ingredients for timeless royal elegance came together as Queen Sirikit of Thailand (who celebrates her 90th birthday today!) traveled across the globe in style in 1960.
We couldn’t do a week-long series on Princess Margaret’s tiaras without talking about this one, could we? Today, we’ve got a glimpse of the Poltimore Tiara sparkling during the Queen’s Silver Jubilee celebrations in 1977 (plus a few more royal tiaras worn for the same event!).
We’ve discussed all three of the Royal Collection exhibitions currently running at royal residences across Britain. Today, we’ve got a closer look at some of the most important jewels on display right now at Windsor Castle: the Coronation Diamonds.
