Edit: note the reply to this message #1 and TBF-QEII-100 The Perth Bridge Opening Brooch. The pic added by Nellie is a crop from one in her own collection.

78. The Queen’s Amethyst Bouquet Brooch

   This brooch is described by Field as “a miniature flower bouquet with seven amethyst buds surrounded by white and yellow gold ferns and grasses, with a central group of twelve freshwater mauve-tinted pearls from the River Tay”.

   This brooch was presented to The Queen in October 1960; however she has never been pictured wearing it publicly.[1]

78. The Queen's Amethyst Bouquet Brooch

   The brooch described by Field is correctly known as the Perth Bridge Opening Brooch. The Amethyst Bouquet brooch consists of seven amethysts forming the centers of flowers set in diamonds which does not match the description of the Perth Bridge brooch provided by Field.

   The origin of the Amethyst Bouquet Brooch is unknown. The Queen frequently wears this brooch.
