TBF-QEQM-30 Queen Elizabeth's Emerald Bracelet

30. Queen Elizabeth’s Emerald Bracelet

   The origins of this bracelet are unclear. It is a wide diamond-set pierced band, set with small emerald stones. Field only mentions that Queen Elizabeth owned several “diamond and emerald bracelets”.[1]

   Queen Elizabeth was pictured wearing this bracelet on occasion,[2] notably in an official photographic sitting in 1990.[3] It is likely to have been inherited by The Queen, following Queen Elizabeth’s death in 2002, although she has never been pictured wearing it publicly.
