When you think of the British Royal Family, you likely think of luxury, impeccable taste in gorgeous hats, attire, and beautiful jewelry. The royals have accumulated an extensive collection of diamond-encrusted tiaras, sapphire-adorned necklaces and sentimental trinkets over the years, with some items dating back to the 16th century.
Some of the beautiful pieces of royal jewelry have been centre stage during significant moments in history – from engagements, weddings to other times of celebration. From heirloom tiaras to world-famous diamonds, Queen Elizabeth II has one of the most spectacular jewelry collections in the world. She's been known to share her beautiful collection. Her exquisite pieces have been worn by Princess Diana, Duchess Catherine and Duchess of Sussex Megan. A significant collection of the royal jewelry is made by the royal jewelry designers House of Garrard—the oldest jeweler in the world (established in 1735). Here, we take a closer look at the tiaras, earrings, rings, and neckpieces that make up the royal collection.
Inspired by pieces worn by Her Majesty The Queen and other members of the Royal Family, Totaram Jewelers, one of India's oldest jewelry stores is committed to making beautiful jewelry as a statement of elegance. From intricately designed uncut and cut diamond necklaces and bracelets to timeless pendants, earrings, our exquisite collection is crafted to impress.
While royal pieces have the benefit of a dedicated workshop inside of Buckingham Palace where they can be repaired and cleaned, you can also take care of your precious treasures by initiating these steps-
1. Clean your jewelry regularly
For pieces you wear frequently, like a diamond engagement ring, a once-a-fornight cleaning schedule would be good. For other items that get less frequent wear, a twice-yearly cleaning should be sufficient. Suggested read: (Care For Pearls & Pearl Jewelry; Diamond Jewelry Care – Do’s And Don’ts)
2. Seek expert help
Get your heirloom pieces and other fragile jewelry like pearls, rubies, and emeralds to a specialist for an annual check-up.
3. Pay attention to details
Caring for your jewels is about more than just keeping them clean, it’s also about checking them for any regular wear. At least once a year, inspect your pieces to ensure that the prongs are still tight, all clasps are in working order, and all 22K gold jewelry is still in good condition and not discolored or require polishing.
