GIA

All eyes are on Britain as the world eagerly awaits the arrival of the newest British royal. The first child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, due in July 2013, will be in-line for the throne and to wear – perhaps – some of the most prized royal possessions.

The six pieces described below are part of the Royal Collection, held in trust by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II for her successors and the nation, or the personal property of Queen Elizabeth II. These gems are not only beautiful, but have a rich history and distinct gemological allure.
