Windsor Jewelry We Love to Hate
« on: March 12, 2006, 12:49:45 AM »
But would we refuse to accept delivery if it appeared on our doorstep?

I never liked this one !  All the horizontal lines make it too wide looking.  Maybe the fact that the QM had a round face contributes to my perception of the piece.   I admit that it looks better on the DoC


I will refrain from adding my #2, being sure that someone will mention it sooner or later.

All the floral brooches need to be broken up and reset.

The ever popular 2 or 3 strands of pearls.  Mind you, I would kill for 3 strands of real pearls.  But BORING.

I recall picking up a copy each of Majesty and Royalty Magazine.  In every daytime picture of the Queen, she was wearing 3 strands of pearls and those earnings which are a single pearl with a small diamond.  I think they came from Queen Mary.

Yes...But I think the Duchess of Winsor's three strand plus pearl pendent (also rumoured to be from Queen Mary) was far more elegant (and stylish).  ;)

HM has several of these 3 strand pearl necklaces,the first being a present from her grandfather George V. Why should she change her style at this stage of her life? After all she is in the suburbs of 80 !!!!. Like her mother and her grandmother she has a style that suits her life and may be boring or have nothing to do with the vagaries of fashion but has become iconic to her... :)

Not to count the Georgian pearls passed down from Queen Caroline of Aspach (wife of King George II).

I know I will be bashed around for this, but I really don't like the Meander tiara.  I can't put my finger on it, but something just doesn't seem quite right about it.



And I really wouldn't accept delivery if FedEx showed up at my door with a package from Gatcombe Park.

Just the aforementioned Burmese Ruby, modern sapphire tiara and the Brazilian aquamarine tiara. I'd gladly except delivery though as the gems themselves are gorgeous and then just have them reset. Same with the Williamson jonquil brooch.

No apologies necessary on the abuse.  I realize that many people love this piece, and I am fully prepared to be bludgeoned with an emerald and diamond-encrusted blunt object.    

At least you'll have one less person to battle when that delivery comes to your door!

I am thinking that if anyone would accept it as they are (Like Camilla Cornwall). To take appart the stones is almost sound like cheating... :(

Cheating? There were no rules set down in the original post.  :)
