The Tudor Rose Brooch

The Tudor Rose Brooch
This unknown brooch or badge seems to have a representation of the famous five petal red Tudor rose with its white center at the top. The element it sits on appears to be studded with stones of a more purple tone. Lacking further details, I will call it the Tudor Rose Brooch for now.

The fact that it made two appearances fairly close together - possibly its first appearances - suggests to me that it could be a recent gift, acquisition, or newly found treasure out of the vault. There has been some speculation that it belongs to a set of four brooches given to The Queen by The Sultan of Oman (see the Three Thistle Brooch entry for more details). But this is all mere speculation.
