When Queen Elizabeth II was married in 1947, her father, King George VI, gifted her with the George VI Victorian Suite, a jewelry set consisting of a magnificent necklace and earrings composed of blue sapphires surrounded by diamonds. In 1963, the Queen commissioned a tiara and bracelet to match, which equaled in grandeur the decadent design of the set and the quality of the gemstones. The tiara is reportedly made from a necklace that originally belonged to Princess Louise of Belgium. Perhaps Elizabeth will bequeath her beautiful parure to the new princess, since she would be the next potential queen.
