Pearl Stud Earrings

Pearl Stud Earrings
For most public engagements currently, the Queen wears Queen Mary's Button Earrings. But occasionally she opts for a simple single pearl stud, an option she's used for years. These are usually seen at less formal occasions, or private ones, and were more common in her earlier years. Being such a simple design, it is often impossible to tell if appearances through the years are a single pair or different pairs (it seems highly likely she has more than one pair in her collection), and so they will all be grouped here regardless.
