Her Royal Highness usually pairs the two or three strand necklace with matching pearl stud earrings and a brooch with some meaningful connection to the occasion she is appearing for.

But why does the monarch favour pearls so much? Experts at Steven Stone jewellery looked into this.

On most occasions the Queen wears a three-strand pearl necklace and there’s a reason why.

Jewellery experts explained: “Pearls have always had a connection with royalty, however Queen Elizabeth is especially known for her love of this radiant gemstone, wearing a pearl necklace for countless events and occasions.

“Thanks to a tradition started by Queen Victoria, Queen Elizabeth is reported to have fell in love with pearl jewellery from being a child.” 

It has been widely reported that Queen Victoria gave each of her daughters and granddaughters a single pearl on their birthday as they grew up, so that by the time they reached the age at 18, they would have enough pearls for a necklace.

Queen Elizabeth’s parents continued the royal tradition, giving her a chain onto which they added two pearls per birthday. 

The Queen also received a complete pearl necklace from her father King George VI for her coronation in 1937.

The future monarch was only 25 years old when she lost her father and the pearl necklace that she received from him remains a powerful reminder of the special bond they shared.

Steven Stone added: “What many royal fans don’t know is that Queen Elizabeth adored the three-strand pearl necklace so much that she had an identical one made. 

“In 1953, a third three-stand pearl necklace also joined her collection - a gift from Emir of Qatar. 

“The only difference among the three was that this gift had a diamond clasp.”
