Decision on Apparel and Footwear Tariffs Will be Made After G20, Says Trump

Did Queen Elizabeth wear a ruby tiara to protect herself during the state dinner with President Trump? ⁣

The queen wore a Burmese ruby and diamond tiara, made by the House of Garrard, which she commissioned in 1973. ⁣

According to Garrard, the 96 rubies featured in the tiara have a symbolic meaning, as in Burmese culture rubies are said to protect against evil and illnesses. The queen also wore matching earrings and a necklace featuring the rubies. ⁣

While Buckingham Palace hasn’t released a statement on the queen’s jewels, a social media firestorm is speculating that the queen purposefully chose the tiara for her meeting with the President and his family. ⁣
