LOL we were typing the same time...I was one second ahead of you |
Yes, we both agree that the photo is not of Queen's Jardine star brooch..
: Thank you for the comparison Tamara, I too do
: not think it is the same brooch. The
: photograph featured on the blog Ayvee
: posted, is, I believe just a picture of
: another star brooch, of which hundreds were
: made in this style.
: I do not recall the Royal Collection ever
: releasing any information of images of the
: Jardine Star Brooch. I think it remains
: firmly Her Majesty's private property.

: Ayvee..if you look at the photo that you
: posted, I am strongly convinced that it is
: NOT the Jardine Star brooch of QEII....here
: is why..
: 1. The 8 diamonds surrounding the 'central'
: diamond are in the "prong" setting
: on Queen's brooch...in your photo they are
: bezel setting.
: 2. The pointy elements (Rays) are longer on
: the Queen brooch and have more diamonds.
: 3. The Queens brooch is more flatter than
: the one you posted, which to me seemed
: smaller even without the comparison,
: Here is the clearest closeup I have of
: Queen's Jardine Star brooch from Jubilee...I
: can clearly see they are not the same can

: I really wish the book included information
: the Jardine Star Brooch. This is one of
: QEII's favorite brooches. She even wore it
: to the river pageant, but still no
: additional information available on it.
: Do you think it could have been in the book,
: but got removed at the last minute so it
: wouldn't be on the exhibit? I am wondering
: about this picture which I have never seen
: I thought perhaps this photo of the brooch
: was taken for the book. Has anyone seen
: this picture before? If so, any information
: on where it was taken would be greatly
: The picture is from a link that VeronikaN
: posted during the river pageant:
: I know QEII is the only one to wear this
: brooch. The only information available is
: from The Queen's Jewels by Leslie Field p.34
: - section on diamonds
: "In 1981 The Queen was left a
: late-Victorian diamond star brooch by Lady
: Jardine, which she has worn on many
: Does anyone know who Lady Jardine is and
: what was her relationship to QEII?
: I know there are other items that could have
: been included in the book.
: My wish list includes:
: Jardine Star Brooch
: Cockade Brooch (which is pictured in the
: QEII's new diamond necklaces
