For her coronation in 1953, the people of Brazil presented Queen Elizabeth II with perfectly matched Aquamarine jewels in a necklace and earring set. In 1958, the Queen was gifted with more aquamarines from Brazil, which she then made into the full tiara parure (matching set) that she still enjoys wearing today.
