I'll never call this brooch a personal favorite, but it's a really nice pick here. Just a touch of ruby but not enough to clash a bright red with the darker coat. And it's one we didn't see at all last year.

This one looks pretty dark in photos, but it will be the first appearance for the year of the pink sapphire, just in a tricky shot.

For Her Maj's first official public engagement of 2020, we've got texture, we've got color, we've got pattern - and we've even got the return of Queen Victoria's Bow Brooch! This brooch is usually a popular choice but has fallen off the radar recently, appearing just once in 2019.
