The Princess Royal celebrates her 70th Birthday next week! The only daughter of the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh, who has been a hard-working member of the Royal Family for over 50 Years, Princess Anne possesses an impressive collection of jewels, and to mark the occasion, we are going to be featuring her Top 7 Jewels, staring with her De Beers Diamond Brooch
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.
