(PRESS RELEASE) Queen Elizabeth II is known for her spectacular and meaningful jewelry collection. Many of these iconic pieces are set in platinum. This noble metal, one of the strongest, natural materials on the planet, also has superior longevity. Since the designs are set in platinum they will endure for generations to come.

Platinum Guild International, the marketing association for platinum jewelry, highlights a few of the Queen’s standout designs.

The diamonds for Queen Elizabeth II’s engagement ring came from a tiara belonging to Prince Philip’s mother. Prince Philip designed the square-cut diamond engagement ring with diamond side stones and had it set in platinum. The Queen still wears this ring every day.

The platinum and diamond Maple Leaf Brooch symbolizes the monarch’s tribute to Canada. The design was first made for Queen Elizabeth II as a gift from King George VI ahead of their state visit to Canada. Ever since that time, the Queen, Duchess Kate, and the Duchess of Cornwall have been pictured wearing it at Canadian events.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
