A Lavenham jeweller and goldsmith was commissioned to design a brooch for the Queen to mark the Platinum Jubilee.

A year ago, Jonathan Lambert Limited was contacted by the Masonic Grand Lodge of England, which wanted to give the brooch as a gift to the monarch.

However, the order only formally came through two months ago.

The Royal Family have long-standing ties to Masonry, with King Edward VIII, the Queen's grandfather, heading Navy Lodge No 2612.

Other members of the family have been affiliated with the same lodge, including Prince Philip.

The platinum and diamond brooch produced by Jonathan Lambert is modelled after the lodge's insignia.

The brooch is set with 104 diamonds, and was crafted by Yasmin Lambert.

The Duke of Kent presented the Queen with the piece during last week's Trooping the Colour ceremony.

Mr Lambert said: "I really enjoyed making the brooch, and it's amazing that I've actually made something that was gifted to the Queen.

"It was a really great honour."
