TBF-QEII-41 The Queen’s Fifth Wedding-Anniversary Bracelet

41. The Queen’s Fifth Wedding-Anniversary Bracelet

   This bracelet consists of “gold links in the shape of interlocked E’s and P’s, and the centre medallion is Prince Philip’s naval badge set in diamonds. There are two sapphire baguette crosses, and two ruby and diamond studded flowers with fluted petals”.[1]

   Prince Philip designed this bracelet personally, and it was made by Boucheron; it was presented to The Queen as a gift to mark their fifth wedding anniversary in 1952.[2]

   This bracelet is worn occasionally by The Queen.[3]
