The Queen loved the gift so much that she decided to wear it to her wedding. She wore it until her husband’s death in 1861 thus becoming a crown heirloom. The brooch has been worn by Queen Elizabeth II on many occasions. Later, when Prince Charles was looking for a suitable ring for his ladylove, Princess Diana, he ended up setting a cluster ring with a blue sapphire diamond set to the middle (inspired from the brooch).
