Sparkling Royal Jewels From Around the World

Queen Elizabeth II’s Brazilian Aquamarine Parure

03.07.2020 by The Court Jeweller // Leave a Comment

Most of the sparkling tiaras worn by Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom were legacies from queens and princesses past, but a few of them have been hand-picked or commissioned by the Queen herself. Today’s tiara, the Brazilian Aquamarine, was ordered by the Queen as a part of an evolving parure of jewels.

The Brazilian aquamarine parure didn’t start with a tiara; it began with a necklace and a pair of earrings. These diamond and aquamarine pieces were presented to the Queen in 1953 by the Brazilian president as a coronation gift on behalf of the people of Brazil. Leslie Field describes the necklace as follows: “nine large oblong aquamarines each in a diamond scroll setting with an even bigger oblong aquamarine pendant drop.” The earrings were designed to mimic the setting of the necklace’s pendant. Above, she wears the earrings and necklace with Queen Alexandra’s Kokoshnik in 1957.

By 1957, the Queen had also commissioned Garrard to make a tiara to match the aquamarine demi-parure. The tiara featured an elaborate diamond and aquamarine bandeau base, with three aquamarine and diamond elements placed at intervals. Above, she wears the original tiara for the Royal Film Performance of George Cukor’s Les Girls in November 1957.

You can see two different angles showing the original tiara above. On the left, the Queen wears the tiara with the necklace (sans pendant) and earrings on a visit to Malta in November 1967; on the right, she dons the tiara to watch Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev dance at Covent Garden in March 1969.

The parure kept evolving, in part because Brazil kept generously offering more aquamarines to the Queen. They presented her with a bracelet and brooch to coordinate with the set in August 1958, and in 1968, when the Queen made her first state visit to Brazil, the Governor of Sao Paolo gave her an aquamarine and diamond hair ornament. According to Field, stones from this ornament were used in 1971 to super-size the aquamarine tiara. (For years, many believed that this hair ornament might have been the smaller aquamarine tiara now worn by the Countess of Wessex , but as that tiara still exists, that can’t be the case.)

The central stone was swapped for a larger one — the original pendant from the necklace — and four new motifs were made to set between each of the three upright oblong aquamarines. Field describes these as “scroll-shaped motifs,” but I’ve always thought they were rather fan-like in their design. Each of the elements of the tiara was also topped by a round, collet-set aquamarine.

The Queen has worn the tiara fairly consistently since its overhaul, even though it’s now one of the tallest and most imposing diadems in her collection. Although she often opts for smaller and more comfortable tiaras (like the GGBI and the Belgian Sapphire) these days, we’ve still seen her bring out the Brazilian Aquamarine Tiara a couple of times over the last decade. Prominent appearances have included the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Australia in October 2011…

…and the Spanish state banquet at Buckingham Palace in July 2017. Will we see the Queen wearing this tiara again anytime soon? Or will it be worn in the future by another royal lady, perhaps the Duchess of Cornwall or the Duchess of Cambridge?
