Ruby and Diamond Collarette a Silver Wedding Present from the Ladies of South Australia to the Princess of Wales

It was a valuable jewellery gift from the the Ladies of South Australia to the Princess of Wales in 1889 (future Queen Alexandra).

The present consisted of a necklet made from South Australian gold, South Australian rubies and Brazilian diamonds. The collarette consisted of twenty-five links each set with three three Australian rubies and four Brazilian diamonds. Suspended from the collarette was „an exquisite pendant, attached by two pieces of cable chain, and sustaining two cornucopias. A beautifully-chased shell occupies the space between these, and in the centre a very large ruby surmounts six diamonds, and close by three pretty-coloured rubies hand in claw settings, a diamond surmounting the centre one. The set is completed by a pair of South Australian gold and ruby bangles,each one containing eleven very large rubies and twenty diamonds.“ Never seen again in public!
It was presented in a opulent silver casket  of 500 ounces Australian Silver (ca 1,5kg) more

Wie ich schon beim Erstellen der Webseite im Jahr 2008 erwähnt habe, hat die Herzogin von Argyll einen grossen Teil Ihres Schmucks der Familie des Herzogs von Kent vermacht.
Nun konnte ich ein weiteres Schmuckstück zuordnen, das Katherine Herzogin von Kent getragen hat, es handelt sich um das Hochzeitsgeschenk von Königin Victoria von England. Ein Anhänger mit einem grossen Smaragden und Diamanten – der jetzt als Smaragdbrosche getragen wird.
