Queen Elizabeth II Speech to commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE day

Queen Elizabeth II wore a Boucheron aquamarine and diamond Double Clip brooch as she addressed the nation marking the 75th anniversary of VE Day at Windsor Castle on Friday, 8th May.

The two art deco style pieces made from oval, baguette, round diamonds and aquamarines were purchased in London on July 31, 1937 by the Duke of Kent, the Queen’s uncle. Part of the Royal Collection, these brooches were gifted to Queen Elizabeth II by her parents, King George VI and Queen Mother in 1944 on her 18th birthday.
