46. The Queen’s Modern Ruby Spray Brooch

   The origins of this brooch are unclear, although Young hints that it was commissioned by The Queen for her own use.[1] It consists of a curving diamond-set motif, framed with rubies, with curving diamond sprays terminating with large brilliants.

   It is worn occasionally by The Queen.[2]
