It was Elizabeth II herself who chose the jewels with which she wanted to be buried. These are her simplest belongings, but with the greatest sentimental value.
Queen Elizabeth II died on September 8, but was buried on Monday 19 in the chapel of St. George in Windsor.
The monarch owned two collections of jewels: the first belonged to the Crown that cannot be touched; and the second one that was hers and has an incalculable value.
This inheritance will be distributed among his heirs in hierarchical order. However, there are two of those jewels that went with her. The head of communication for the Natural Diamond Council, Lisa Levinson, told the “Metro” media what they were.
Her Welsh wedding ring
The ring that Philip of Edinburgh gave her on her wedding day in 1947 and that she never took off. “The young Prince Philip was closely involved in the design of Elizabeth’s engagement ring,” Levinson said.
And along the same lines, he added that “it is set in platinum and has eleven natural diamonds: a three-carat round solitaire diamond and five smaller stones set on each side.”

It was what she used the most in her day to day, except for other more pompous occasions where she took out the most elaborate jewelry.
