When Queen Elizabeth pre-recorded a message for the annual Commonwealth Day on March 7, she wore a platinum, diamond and sapphire brooch, known as her “Chrysanthemum brooch” which has a significant historical and personal history.

She was presented with the brooch when she launched a new oil tanker in 1946, when she was still a princess. She famously wore the brooch for a portrait with Prince Philip during their honeymoon, and the couple recreated the photo – with the brooch in place – on their 60th anniversary in November 2007.

For her Commonwealth Day address, she a wore a blue dress and jacket, accessorised with pearl drop earrings and a pearl necklace, along with the chrysanthemum brooch.

Chanel has paid tribute to its iconic scent, Chanel No. 5, with a high jewellery collection called Collection No 5.


Designed by Patrice Leguéreau, director of Chanel’s Fine Jewellery Creation Studio, the collection comprises 123 jewellery pieces, each inspired by different elements of the perfume. The central piece in the collection is the 55.55 necklace, featuring an enormous 55.55-carat emerald-cut diamond in the pendant, set in 18-carat white gold bezel and framed by a silhouette of the Chanel No 5 bottle. The bottle’s stopper is recreated in white gold and diamonds and the diamond studded clasp is shaped like the number 5, Coco’s lucky number. A cascade of pear-shaped diamonds falls from the base of the “bottle.”


The necklace is not for sale, as it is intended to be kept in the Maison’s archive, the
Patrimoine de Chanel, in Paris.
