Queen Elizabeth presented with Saskatchewan brooch

Queen Elizabeth now has some fancy Saskatchewan bling to add to her jewel box.

On Thursday, Saskatchewan Lieut. Gov. Vaughn Schofield met with the Queen and presented her with a brooch, but not just any brooch.

Created by Regina jewellery designer Rachel Mielke, it's made up of white gold and tourmaline stones with a pearl in the middle and is surrounded by 300 diamonds.

It's worth $15,000.

"I felt that Rachel was the perfect artist to create a gift for our Queen, who has dedicated her life to public service and is an inspiration to women and girls around the globe," Schofield said in a news release.

Schofield also made a donation in the Queen's name to a charity promoting girl-centric approaches to educating adolescent girls in the developing world.

Each Canadian Lieutenant Governor gets a personal audience with the Queen. Schofield's meeting was Thursday at Buckingham Palace.
