Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee Brooch

Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee Brooch
This diamond and pearl brooch was a gift to Queen Victoria for her Diamond Jubilee from current and former members of her personal staff, and was designated as an heirloom of the Crown. It was a favorite of Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, and passed to the Queen in 2002. She has worn it a handful of times, both with and without the detachable bottom diamond chain and pearl pendant.
