On 2 March 1879 Queen Victoria recorded in her journal that she had told her son, Arthur, Duke of Connaught, she would give his wife to be, an Indian diadem.
Then on 12 March 1879 Queen Victoria described showing her gifts to the bride and others, again referring to an Indian diadem.

Royal Imperial Oranien-Nassau Jewels | Princess Heinrich of the Netherlands>>

Prince Henry of the Netherlands was one of the richest Princes in the world. A silver mine in America brings him a princely income and he has many Dutch, Russian and other bonds, with 99 properties in Holland – the maximum number, for the King alone can own 100 – and some in other countries.

His royal Bride has got the richest jewels …the oranien nassau diamonds….

As a gift from the Emperor and the Empress, the Princess Bride Marie, a 9-star brilliant tiara, is enough; the same is made by the court jewelers S. Friedeberg & Sons, after the diadem which Princess Elizabeth received during her marriage. According to the composition of the individual parts, 24 different forms, u. A. also representing a necklace, to be a masterpiece of jewelry.

By contrast, the very same jewelry gifts have been carried out by the same company in private compositions, which the prince Heinrich venerated his bride. It is a double jewelry: tiara, corsage and necklace in sapphires and diamonds, as in diamonds to wear.

The stones supplied by the prince are among the greatest rarities, and a large sapphire and a large diamond below are estimated at 100,000 each; the whole decoration has a value of more than 1 000 000.
The tasteful and dignified execution of the work is a high honor to our local arts and crafts. The prince has offered his bride, as a wedding gift, a wealth of diamonds and other gemstones, as he would seldom appear in such abundance and beauty even in princely weddings

The Berlin industry has been particularly honored to be entrusted with the creation of the jewelery, which was supplied by the court jewelers S. Friedberg Sons.
The whole Corbeille de mariage consists of a diadem, a corsage (big brooch), a necklace with 11 pendulum oques and an extension of the same to the corsage as so-called. Esclavage, which ends in two shoulder brooches.

This jewelery, made after drawings by Holbein, can be worn in two ways, with sapphires or all in brilliants.

The large sapphires and diamonds supplied by Prince Heinrich are among the rarities that hardly any of the most famous treasure troves in the world have.
The great sapphire of the corsage, weighing about 200 ct, of the most beautiful purest blue of more than 100,000 ct in value, is of no less beauty than a second sapphire cabochon of over 100 cts, which is matched by the five large sapphires of the diadem.
The large brilliants to be screwed in place of the sapphires, solitaires from 10 to 30 carats a piece, are of the purest water as they are brought to Brazil only in the earliest time to days.
All jewelry is protected from a value of one million marks.
