Queen Elizabeth II celebrates her 63 years and 218 days of reign as England’s monarch on Wednesday, Sept. 9. The 89-year-old Queen of England is all set to break the record of Queen Victoria, who held the throne for 63 years and 216 days.

The British royal family will join the Queen at Balmoral Castle to celebrate the momentous occasion. Prior to that, Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, Prince Philip, will travel via steam train from Edinburgh to Tweedbank to formally open the new Borders railway. Meanwhile, a 30-minute flotilla show will sail on River Thames from the Tower Bridge to the house of Parliament to mark the queen’s longest reign.

In a run up to Elizabeth's record-breaking reign, International Business Times, Australia Edition takes its readers through a gallery of her personal jewellery collection (Royal Collection).

The Queen wore the Diamond Diadem Crown (1820), which was originally made for George IV, for her Coronation ceremony. On all postage stamps, she can be seen wearing this same crown. Also, the Queen wears it every year for the State Opening of Parliament.

Britain's Queen Elizabeth II is seen wearing a brooch made from the Cullinan diamond.

In the third picture, the queen is wearing the 'Burmese Ruby Tiara.' This tiara was specially commissioned for the Queen by Garrard in 1973. The tiara was made using jewels in her possession, including 96 rubies presented ‘by the people of Burma.’ The diamonds on the tiara have been taken from the Nizam of Hyderabad Tiara. Along with the tiara, the Queen is seen wearing a ruby necklace and matching ruby earrings.

The fourth picture shows Queen Elizabeth II wearing 'The Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara.' It was a wedding present to Queen Mary in 1893 by a committee of girls of Great Britain and Ireland, headed by Lady Eve Greville, who purchased the tiara from Garrard, the oldest jewellery house. It was passed down to Queen Elizabeth II by her grandmother, Mary, as a wedding gift. She is also seen wearing 'The Festoon,' which is made of 105 diamonds. George VI commissioned the jewellery in 1947, which weighs a whopping 170 carats.

The Cullinan III and IV brooch is pictured.

The sixth picture shows the 1914 Faberge Mosaic Egg. This is one of the four Faberge eggs included in the Royal Collection. Four jewel-encrusted Easter eggs dominate a lavish display of works by Russian Imperial jeweller Carl Faberge. Among the four eggs, three were commissioned by Tsar Nicholas II and are among only the 50 Imperial Eggs ever made. It is included in 300 Faberge works from the Royal Collection.
