First: Thank you very much for these breathtaking HQs, Nikola! They're fantastic .
Glittering Queen Mary wears not only a 'brooch', she wears Cullinan I & II as a stomacher, the smaller 'twins', Cullinan III & IV are worn as a pendant from a diamond collet necklace and she wears two of Queen Victoria's bow brooches .
This is what The Royal Collection says about this portrait (taken February 1911): Photograph of Queen Mary, standing in full length portrait and wearing State Robes for the Opening of Parliament together with full mourning dress for Edward VII. She faces the viewer and wears Queen Victoria's Koh-I-Noor diadem, earrings, two large bow brooches and Crown Collet necklace. Cullinans I and II are worn as a brooch on the Garter sash and at her neck she wears a seven row diamond necklace.
