For the British royal family, the heart-shaped pin, which is set with three blue sapphires, is extremely important.It was a gift given to Queen Victoria by her grandchildren in honor of her Diamond Jubilee, formally observed on June 22, 1897, to commemorate the 60th anniversary of her coronation.On the brooch, the number 60 is outlined in diamonds.

Queen Victoria enjoyed the second-longest reign of any monarch in Great Britain before her death on January 22, 1901.
This record of 63 years was broken by Queen Elizabeth, who marked her 70th year in office at her Platinum Jubilee in June, months before passing away peacefully on September 8 at her cherished Scottish estate.
