The women of Auckland showed their appreciation for the first reigning monarch to visit their country by presenting the Queen with a bejeweled version of a well-known national symbol, which was made possible by fundraising.

The Brooch is made of platinum set with baguette and brilliant diamonds, it was presented on Christmas Day 1953 and worn for the first time before the trip was over. It has been worn for New Zealand-related functions ever since.
