These Amazing Pieces of Royal Jewelry Would Make You Gasp

It is a very well-known fact that the royal jewelry always stays in the royal family, as it has for centuries. The British royals have a tradition of passing down their priceless jewels to the next generation.

Sometimes these jewels require modifications due to their outdated design or any breakage, but more or less they retain their form over time due to their significance. Given below is a list of the most iconic pieces of royal jewels.

The Spencer Tiara

The Spencer Tiara was worn by the late Princess Diana at her wedding. Unlike the other royal brides, Diana did not borrow this piece from the Queen as The Spencer Tiara belonged to her own family, which was made by Garrard somewhere in between the years 1930 and 1940. Princess Diana was seen wearing this tiara at multiple events after her wedding as well.

The Spencer Tiara is still famous around the world, mostly because it was worn by Princess Diana at her wedding day.

Cartier Halo Scroll Tiara

This stunning tiara was originally an anniversary gift in 1936, from King George VI to his wife Queen Elizabeth. Then Queen Elizabeth gifted it to Queen Elizabeth II on her eighteenth birthday. The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton borrowed it from the Queen for her own wedding day. The tiara contains more than a thousand diamonds and has been seen most frequently being worn by the sister of Queen Elizabeth II, the late Princess Margaret.

Queen Mary Diamond Bandeau Tiara

This tiara was worn by the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, on her wedding day. The tiara, originally, had a sapphire as its centerpiece but later this was replaced with a diamond.

The gorgeous tiara that Meghan Markle had worn on her wedding day was once owned by Queen Mary.

Duchess of Cambridge’s Engagement Ring

The stunning ring originally belonged to the late Princess Diana, who reportedly had chosen this ring for her own engagement. In 2010, Prince William, following the footsteps of his father, proposed to Kate with the same 12-carat sapphire ring.

Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara

This tiara is rather special because it is plastered on the British currency as well, sitting comfortably on the Queen’s head. It was gifted to the queen by her grandmother, Queen Mary.

The Duchess of Sussex’s Engagement Ring

Even though the ring is not entirely royal since it was custom made by Cleave & Company, but the stones installed in it were taken from the late Princess Diana’s brooch, so we think that makes it royal enough.

Granny’s Chips

The royal family has named the two diamonds in this brooch as Granny’s Chips out of affection. Both these gorgeous stones were cut from the Cullinan diamond and they are estimated to be around 158 carats altogether. Queen Elizabeth II had inherited this brooch from Queen Mary, her grandmother, and later wore it to the church service for her Diamond Jubilee.

The two diamonds that the Queen often wears are candidly called Granny’s Chips, as they used to belong to Queen Mary, the Queen’s grandmother.

Delhi Durbar Necklace

This gold necklace was made from the emeralds owned by Queen Mary’s grandmother. Queen Mary had requested that a necklace be made out of them for Delhi Durbar.

Kate’s Ruby Necklace

Kate Middleton was seen wearing this necklace made of diamond and ruby at an engagement in 2011. Reportedly, it is not a royal heirloom, but would be considered royal moving forward.

Duchess of Cornwall’s Pink Topaz Choker

This choker, made with pearls and a gigantic pink colored topaz as its centerpiece was reportedly gifted by Prince Charles to the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla. She was seen wearing this choker on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding.
