The state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II will take place at Westminster Abbey at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, September 19, Buckingham Palace has announced.

Before the service, Elizabeth will remain inside Westminster Hall for four days to allow the public to pay their respects, and then her coffin will be transported to Windsor, where she will be buried alongside her parents and her late husband, Prince Philip.

Although throughout her life the queen was adorned with countless precious and priceless jewels, an expert has assured that the monarch will be buried with only some of her most modest and sentimental jewels despite having a private collection of more than 300 articles.

“Her Majesty is an incredibly humble woman who is unlikely to be wearing anything other than her simple Welsh gold wedding ring to rest,” Lisa Levinson, head of communications for the Natural Diamond Council, told .

The only other piece of jewelry the queen is expected to be buried with is her signature pearl earrings.

“Her Majesty’s life has always focused on the legacy of the royal family, in the UK and Commonwealth; her jewelry forms a big part of that legacy,” she added.

Queen Elizabeth II’s private jewelry collection has some 300 pieces, including 98 brooches, 34 pairs of earrings and 15 rings.

When not worn by the monarch, they are kept in the Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace.

The official Crown Jewels are kept in the Tower of London, and the collection, which dates back to the 17th century, consists of more than 23,000 diamonds, sapphires and rubies.

Her favorite pieces include pearls, a $45,000 diamond brooch and sapphires from the President of Brazil used at his coronation.
