The Ruby and Gold Flower Brooch

The Ruby and Gold Flower Brooch
This brooch, an arrangement of flowers in gold with diamonds and rubies, isn't seen often. I don't believe it's been definitively identified, though one of several brooches on the Queen's list of wedding gifts seems a high probability. One possibility might be the brooch which was a gift from the Principality of Monaco, described as a "gold brooch set with diamonds and rubies in a trellised floral design".
