1638 Henrietta Maria by Sir Anthonis van Dyck (Royal Collection)

A 1638 van Dyck portrait of Queen Henrietta Maria, this shows a variety of bodice and sleeve jewels.

This image was copied from Wikipedia as a non-copyright encumbered document.

This portrait does not show the complete bodice, but whets the curiosity. The dress may include a coat or over-skirt extending below the bottom. The coat or over-skirt is attached to at least one side of the bodice with pearl buttons.
