The friendship between England and the UAE has stood the test of time, and with Dubai’s ruler and children often visiting England for polo matches and the support each nation has shown the other over the years.

The stunning set was gifted to the Queen in 1979

The gold camel and trees were also part of the gifts presented to Her Majesty.

Asprey’s London, a showroom for fine jewellery that has been around since 1781, created the set of diamonds and sapphires set in gold

Her Majesty was amazed upon first sight of the grand set

The full set, meant to be worn together, was gifted in a form of a necklace, earrings and a brooch or ring

The Queen had the set modified, later on, by turning the earrings and brooch into a bracelet and trimming the length of the necklace to turn into earrings. Talk about efficiency.
