In December 1971, Princess Anne received a ‘a unique gift of coloured diamonds, or ‘fancies’, from the De Beers Company when she visited their London headquarters,’ which she had set into a Diamond Brooch. The Brooch was notably worn to a Film Premiere in 1973, and was often worn in the 1970s, traditionally and also on a velvet choker, like at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in 1974.

The De Beers Diamond Brooch has been regularly worn by Princess Anne throughout the years, both for daytime events and for fancier evening receptions, with a notable recent appearance at the Easter Service at Windsor Castle last year. There is no doubt the Brooch will be worn for years to come.
