Cartier Diamond Sun Tiara |Countess Suffolk|Dollarprincess Daisy Leiter| England Aristocratic Noble Jewel History

Cartier Diamond Sun Tiara |Countess Suffolk|Dollarprincess Daisy Leiter| England Aristocratic Noble Jewel History  Dec. .26. — Miss Marguerite Hdye Leiter, popularly known as "Daisy," the youngest and only unmarried daughter of the late Levi Z. Leiter, was married to-day at noon to Henry Mollneaux Page Howard, nineteenth Earl of Suffolk and Berkshire. Miss Leiter is the third daughter'of the house to contract a marriage with a noble family of England. Her eldest sister, who was Miss Mary, married Lord Curzon, Viceroy of India. Her other sister, Miss Nancy, married Major Colin Campbell, a cousin of the Duke of Argyle, on November 29 last. While to-day's wedding was extremely quiet, it lacked none of the glamour of music, lights and flowers. The stately drawing-room, library and dining-room of the Leiter mansion were fragrant with delicate white blossoms, which were banked against a background of smilax and palms, while the suggestion of the Christmas season was given by the holly and brilliant poinsettia that adorned the din-ing-room. ■ *

While the strains of a string orchestra sounded sweetly through the house, the silken rustle of the bridal gown proclaimed the approach of the bride. Long known as one of the beauties of the capital, Miss Leiter never looked lovelier than to-day in her soft clinging gown of Libertin satin, veiled with exquisite point de Venice lace, over which fell her tulle veil, held In place by a tiara of diamonds. This tiara is one of the handsomest jewels of a rare collection of family heirlooms, which the Earl presented to his bride. A long rope of pearls, the favourite Jewel of the bride and which was the gift of her mother, was worn around her throat. She carried a graceful loose cluster of white orchids and roses.

Escorted by her brother, Joseph Leiter. she approached the window recess where the Earl and his best man, Lionel Guest, a son of Lord Winborn of England, awaited her. The Rev. Dr. Roland Cotton Smith, rector of St. John's Church, which the family attends, performed the ceremony according to the Episcopal ritual.

Mrs. Leiter. Mrs. Colin Campbell, Lady Nina Howard, a sister of the Earl, .who has been with him since his arrival in this country, were the only other persons to witness the ceremony.

After the ceremony the party, repaired to the dining-room, where a wedding breakfast was served. The Earl and Countess of Suffolk left Washington late in the afternoon for New York and will sail on Wednesday for England, probably having for their companions Major and Mrs. Campbell. The Earl will take his bride to Charlton Park, his country seat, at Malmesbury, in Wiltshire. It is said to comprise 10,000 acres and Is rich in Historical memories.

Mrs Ogden Mills Boucheron Diamond and Pearl Tiara |Family Jewels Marchioness of Bute| Lady James Crichton-Stuart

Mrs Ogden Mills extraordinary Boucheron Diamond and Pearl Tiara, Family Jewels of the Marchioness of Bute, her daughter.⁣

Worn by Lady James Crichton-Stuart, Sally Crocker Poole, in the year 1962. She was the wife of the 3rd son of the Marchioness of Bute.⁣

Instead of the large pear shaped diamond in front which was probably 70ct, it was changed for another large pearl, so we count 7 pear shaped pearls on top of the diamond tiara and also round pearls in the bandeau to replace the round brilliants. Made by Boucheron Paris, it was one of three tiaras which Mrs Ogden Mills owned, each noted with 85 000 Franc ….⁣
