The Diamonds of the Diamond Queen: The Cullinan V Brooch

The Cullinan V brooch was cut from one of the world’s largest natural diamonds, known as the Cullinan diamond. The centrepiece is an 18.8 carat heart-shaped diamond, set in a platinum web with a scrolling millegrain, accompanied by a pave-set border of diamonds. The brooch was designed for Queen Mary (H. M.’s grandmother and wife of George V) and is now worn by Queen Elizabeth.
