The Six Petal Diamond Flower Brooch

The Six Petal Diamond Flower Brooch
The Queen has had this brooch since she was Princess Elizabeth. It's composed of six diamond petals surrounding a large single diamond collet. Each diamond petal has a row of larger diamonds down the center.
The exact origins of the brooch are not known. She memorably wore it for the photo call showing off her engagement ring and fiancé in 1947, so it obviously has personal significance for Her Majesty.
