81. The Queen’s Portland Turquoise Shamrock Brooch

   This brooch, in the form of a shamrock set with turquoise and surrounded by diamonds, was presented to The Queen in 1947 as a wedding present from the Dowager Duchess of Portland. It is described simply in the official catalogue of wedding gifts as a “Diamond and turquoise shamrock brooch”.[1]

   The Queen has never been pictured wearing this brooch publicly.
