The Pearl Triangle Brooch

The Pearl Triangle Brooch
The Pearl Triangle Brooch, so named after Leslie Field's description of it as an "unusual long narrow diamond triangle", includes two large pearls and a yellow diamond (difficult to pick out in most appearances) set in an ornate vertical diamond frame.
The brooch has been seen periodically from the beginning years of the Queen's reign. Its provenance is unknown though as with many of the brooches she's worn this long, pegging it as an inheritance or a gift is always a valid guess.
