We don't see HM bust out the brooch from the Brazilian Aquamarine Parure that much all on its own, but on this occasion it makes perfect sense: the aquamarine parure began its life as a gift from Brazil to mark her coronation. The brooch wasn't actually given to her until 1958, but never mind that. Significance.
