January 2nd, 2012 // 1 Comment

To mark Queen Elizabeth‘s 60 years on the throne, The Royal Collection will put on Diamonds: A Jubilee Celebration during Buckingham Palace’s Summer Opening next August, after a fortnight of celebrations in June.  The exhibit will include jewels representing the United Kingdom’s monarchs from the past two hundred years, with Elizabeth II’s “best diamonds” receiving top billing. 

According to the Daily Mail, some of Elizabeth’s most treasured pieces will be on display where Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge‘s wedding dress stood last summer.

Included in the Queen’s person collection are The Girls Of Great Britain Tiara, The South African necklace and bracelet, The Coronation necklace and earrings and a Cartier brooch containing a very rare diamond given to Elizabeth for her wedding in 1947.

You must take a spin through the gallery to check out gorgeous photos of the jewelry, courtesy of The Royal Collection.
