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.
