|The Double Swan Brooch|
Interestingly, it is not the only swan brooch in the Queen's collection; she has at least one other, a tiny diamond swan brooch. And swan brooches are quite fitting for Her Majesty, as the Crown has the rights of ownership of all unmarked mute swans in open water, a right only exercised on certain parts of the Thames and its tributaries.
