Cartier Queen's Cup Polo

The Queen attended the Cartier Queen's Cup Final at Guards Polo Club, Windsor Great Park.

Well, well, well. I do believe we have a brooch debut on our hands - but since there are sooooo many diamond floral brooches floating around, I'll wanted to see what everyone thinks before I do a brooch post for it. (And, update: this brooch has indeed been worn in the past, with thanks to Franck.)

This one is a diamond rosette with five petals, which is not enough petals and not enough shape to be either the Cartier Diamond Rose Clip Brooch or one of the smaller Nizam of Hyderabad Rose Brooches. It most closely resembles a diamond rosette brooch worn by The Duchess of Cornwall, which was most likely one of The Queen Mother's wedding gifts that came from Queen Mary and may have been one of her wedding gifts; Queen Mary had at least two. It's also very close to a diamond rose brooch sold when Princess Margaret's jewels were auctioned (and that brooch was also likely from Queen Mary). It's one big tangled web of diamond floral brooches, y'all.

Any thoughts or leads, friends? The Daily Mail site does have a couple more pics, if you're so inclined.
