queen Victoria's crown ruby brooch Replica
These pieces were left by Queen Victoria to the Crown when she died in 1901, and they have remained in the collection ever since, Most of the opals were removed and replaced by rubies in 1901/2 by Queen Alexandra. The brooch was not altered to ruby stones until 1926. However, the brooch was undoubtedly showcased when it passed to Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother after her husband was crowned George VI of England. The brooch is part of a ruby parure.
Upon the Queen Mother’s death in 2002 it passed onto Queen Elizabeth II. The brooch is very impressive on its own. Queen Elizabeth wore it to Royal Ascot in 2015
