Someone rightly said, they don’t make anything like ‘Royal’ jewellery anymore. The lucky ones who are born in to a royal family get to see, admire, wear, cherish and preserve some of the most exquisite breath-taking pieces of jewellery in the world.
The distinct characteristic of jewellery belonging to royal families is the intricate designs and skilled craftsmanship clearly visible on them. Another thing noticeable about royal jewellery is the generous amount of precious stones. Diamonds, sapphire, emerald, rubies, pearls and a lot of these precious stones can be found on each piece of the jewellery.
If you ever get a chance to see these wonderful pieces of jewellery from close up then be prepared to be awe-struck. The sparkle of royal jewellery will bring glitter to your eyes.
Here is the list of few of the jaw-dropping pieces of jewellery.
Being from a royal family, Princess Margaret had a huge collection of beautiful jewellery. Her Diamond Monogram Brooch and Poltimore Tiara are considered to be some of the best jewellery she possessed. The tiara was made with old cut diamond clusters along with stunning diamond-set scroll motifs. The most unique feature of this sparkling tiara is that it can be transformed in to a necklace and eleven stunning brooches. The Diamond Monogram Brooch has her initial, ‘M’ and is set with single and circular-cut diamonds.
While talking about jewellery of princesses, how can we forget Queen Mary’s Diamond Riviere? This spectacular diamond Riviere is made with 34 sparkling diamonds which are set on gold and silver. One look at it and you will sigh wishing that you owned this diamond necklace.
And a conversation about jewellery belonging to royal families can’t be complete without mentioning Princess Diana’s amazing jewellery collection. Her diamond and sapphire ring is the most talked about engagement ring, which eventually went to Kate Middleton when she got married to Prince William.
