14 Outstanding Jewelry Of Queen Elizabeth

The Queen is dead, long live the King. Queen Elizabeth’s wealth is unimaginable. Some say the jewelry of Queen Elizabeth is worth around 4 billion pounds.

The jewelry of Queen Elizabeth consists of more than 300 pieces. The price of those? You can not give a price to something “inalienable”. That means they can not be sold or transferred to anyone.

8 September 2022 was the day of Queens Elizabeth’s death. She was 96 years old and reigned for 70 years.

The jewelry of Queen Elizabeth according to Leslie Field included 14 tiaras, 34 pairs of earrings, 98 brooches, 46 necklaces, 37 bracelets, 14 watches, and 15 rings. That is a lot of pieces even for a Queen.

Most of them are heirlooms, given as a gift, and cannot be sold because they are part of The Crown.

Final thoughts

King Charles is the new King of England now. His name will be King Charles III.

Will he be as successful as Queen Elizabeth? We really do not know.

The good news is that neither the Queen nor the King does not play any political or executive role in the British government.

King Charles’s second wife Camila will be queen consort instead of princess consort.

Anyway. The Queen is dead, Long live the King
