The Diamond and Gold Rose Brooch

The Diamond and Gold Rose Brooch
This particular arrangement of diamonds spotted on the Queen's shoulder since at least 1967 doesn't have a known provenance, but it's a nice golden addition to Her Majesty's many floral brooches. Because of the lack of hard facts, I will stick to a purely generic name for it: the Diamond and Gold Rose Brooch.
