The Sapphire and Diamond Grapes Brooch

The Sapphire and Diamond Grapes Brooch
This might be one of the cutest brooches in the Queen's collection: a bunch of grapes, each grape represented by a diamond, with diamond stems tied together in a sapphire bow.
The Queen Mother (l) and the Queen (r)
It comes from the collection of the late Queen Mother, and was inherited by the Queen when her mother passed away in 2002. It now makes occasional adorable appearances on appropriately blue outfits.
