I was comparing Arthur`s pic of the brooch with the picture in Robert`s book & I see what you mean Nellie about the top bud not being visible. However Roberts says the flower-heads are adjustable (as can be seen from his view of the back of the brooch)as was the stalk but the stalk is now fixed, which seems to mean the flowers can still be moved. The Queen seems to have the taller flower more in line with the stalk compared to the pic in Roberts & Beth`s B&W photo above of QEQM which seem to have the top flower tilted more to the right. If this is the case & perhaps the angle of HM`s photo? The brooch could still be the same, also if you look really carefully just above the top flower in Arthur`s pic,there is a small point that looks like the top of the marquise diamond. bud
