TBF-QEII-62 The Queen’s Abdulla of Saudi Arabia Sapphire Demi-Parure

62. The Queen’s King Abdulla of Saudi Arabia Sapphire Demi-Parure

   This suite consists of a necklace, earrings and bracelet in sapphires and diamonds. The necklace is a simple wreath of diamonds, with a single sapphire set in the centre, from this hang three small diamond tassels, with sapphire pendants.

   The earrings of this demi-parure consist of three sapphires set in a clover, all surrounded by a ring of diamonds. There is also an bracelet en suite.

   It is believed that this necklace was presented to The Queen by King Abdulla of Saudi Arabia, whilst he was still the Crown Prince. It was first worn publicly by The Queen to a dinner hosted at 10 Downing Street, in honour of her Golden Jubilee, and it has been worn occasionally since, most notably to the State Banquet hosted in honour of King Abdulla in 2007.
