Bracelets and Earrings
The Queen is said to
have an extensive collection of 37 bracelets; Prince Philip gave
her a diamond bracelet on the occasion of her marriage. When she is
in full evening wear she is often seen wearing a diamond bracelet
on each wrist - these are worn over her long white evening gloves,
which she does not remove.
On the occasion of her wedding her parents gave her the Cartier King George VI chandelier earrings - these elaborate earrings display cut diamonds in a succession of three large drops. She had to have her ears pierced before she could wear them.
She is also frequently seen wearing Queen Victoria's Stud Earrings - a pair of large, perfectly matched brilliant cut diamonds which Queen Victoria had set as earstuds. Her Diamond Pear Drop earrings are a set of gold and diamond earrings consisting of two large brilliant diamonds as the studs, below a smaller brilliant followed by a large pear shaped diamond drop.
In the daytime, the Queen frequently wears pearl stud earrings.
She is pictured wearing a ruby and diamond necklace, formerly in the Baring Collection, which the Queen acquired in 1964. She wears a matching bracelet and pair of earrings.
