TBF-QEII-93 The Queen’s Sapphire Bumblebee Brooch

93. The Queen’s Sapphire Bumblebee Brooch

   The origins of this brooch are unknown. It is described simply by Field as “a cabochon sapphire bumblebee with diamond wings”.[1] However, although no more information on provenance is given, it is likely that this is one of the few insect brooches that the Queen owned as a little girl.

   The Queen has never been pictured wearing this brooch in public.
