Princess Diana’s emerald choker
Gifted to the late Princess Diana as a wedding gift in 1981, this eye-catching choker was originally a necklace owned by Queen Mary in 1911.
Princess Diana also wore her emerald choker as a head bandeau, making an iconic and infamous fashion statement.
The Burmese ruby tiara
The rubies on the Burmese ruby tiara are extremely rare. They were gifted to the Royal family by the people of Burma, who believe the rubies have the power to heal and protect their owner.
This is what makes the Burmese ruby tiara so precious; not because of the decided price, but because of the meaning the rubies hold to those who gave them to the Royal family. To the people of Burma, these rubies are priceless.
Queen Mary’s rose of York bracelet
The county of Cornwall gave Mary, the Duchess of York and Princess of Teck, the ruby and diamond cuff bracelet, known as now as the Rose of York bracelet. The diamonds run across the rounded rubies that sparkle along the cuff.
In the middle, the bracelet holds a rose made of diamonds and rubies. This gift was given to the future Queen back in 1893 when she married the Duke of York.
