The Burmese Ruby Tiara, most of the tiaras owned by Queen Elizabeth were inherited, & she’s largely left them alone (as opposed to her grandmother Queen Mary, who liked to redesign her gems on a regular basis). Today’s tiara is a unique look at what she does with gems when the design is not predetermined. Aside from the Oriental Circlet, the Burmese Ruby is the only major ruby tiara worn by the current queen. The reason that the Queen needed a new ruby tiara is a little unusual. When she succeeded to the throne in 1953, she should have taken possession of all of the jewels designated as "heirlooms of the crown" by previous monarchs & their spouses. This collection includes the Oriental Circlet, which was made for Queen Victoria & then reset with rubies by Queen Alexandra. But the circlet was one of the favorite tiaras of Elizabeth's mother. The new Queen Mother was a young widow in her 50s, & she had decades of royal duties ahead of her. Rather than taking the circlet from her mother, the Queen decided to let her keep the piece (& a few other crown heirlooms) & use other jewels instead. Most of these pieces stayed with the Queen Mother for the rest of her life, so Elizabeth didn't inherit (or begin wearing) them until 2002. She has so far only worn the circlet once. The new ruby tiara was made by Garrard in 1973. The rubies used in the making of the new piece were also a wedding gift; Elizabeth received them from the people of Burma. The gift included precisely 96 rubies, all of which are now set in the tiara. The rubies & diamonds were set in a series of rose motifs, & if you know your English history, you’ll recognize a heraldic rose that combines white and red petals as the Tudor rose #britain#queen#queenelizabeth#monarch#monarchy#royal#royalfamily#meghanmarkle#london#british#buckinghampalace#windsorcastle#windsor#londonbridge#princeharry#princewilliam#katemiddleton#royalty#crown#constitution#princegeorge#riverthames#kingdom#queenvictoria#unitedkingdom#uk#history#tudor#royalwedding#westminster
