The recycled rubies give it an interesting provenance. It’s interesting to see the carved rubies close to see what each is - some look like scarabs, others like carved leaves or buds. The gold work makes me think of coral so it does seem a bit incongruous. Wonder what the theme or premise behind the design was. The article doesn’t really get into that.
With the rubies coming from a headdress it could be all - leaves, buds and scarabs.
I think the dull red with the gold is reminiscent of coral and seaweed with diamond droplets of water sprinkled on it.
I know most of the jewelry will get lumped with what gets passed from Monarch to Monarch, but this was a personal present and I think it would be a nice piece for Anne to have. It would suit both her and Zara.
