Princess Anne’s latest brooch was gifted to her by Queen Elizabeth II – a LONG time ago

On 17th May 2024, Princess Anne hosted the Not Forgotten Association Annual Garden Party at Buckingham Palace.

Known for her friendly demeanor, the Princess Royal engaged in in-depth conversations with individuals from the tri-service charity, which offers entertainment, leisure, and recreation for serving wounded, injured, or sick personnel, as well as ex-service men and women with disabilities.

Looking as classy as ever, Princess Anne donned a cream jacket embroidered with brown metallic pattern detailing. Though it was the senior royal’s accessory that caught our eye – a diamond and gold brooch that’s been part of her collection for decades.

Fine jewellery experts at UK retailer Steven Stone have revealed everything we know about the piece, including it’s origin and how much it’s likely to be worth.

“Looking every inch the royal in a classy ensemble at the latest Buckingham Palace Garden Party, Princess Anne adorned her jacket with a large diamond and yellow gold brooch.

The piece has been identified as the Princess Royal’s stalactite brooch, which was created by Andrew Grima and has been in her jewellery box since 1973. It’s a particularly sentimental piece for Anne as she received it from her Mother – the late Queen Elizabeth II – as a wedding gift when she tied the knot with her first husband, Captain Mark Phillips. I’d estimate it to be worth £16,000.

Princess Anne frequently wears the brooch with her Grima Pearl Earrings, which constitute gold, pearl, and diamonds in a modern leaf design. Gifted to her by her mother and father in the late 1960’s, the earrings are one of Anne’s longest serving pieces of jewellery and have huge sentimental value. The retail price for a pair of earrings like Princess Anne’s would be at the top end of £3,000.”
