Queen Mary Jewels | Imperial Presents -Royal Wedding Gifts

History of the enormous jewel collection of Queen Mary
DIAMOND TROPHY OF LOVE COLLAR

Formed of seven brilliant-set panels, each with an amatory trophy of bow, quiver and torch in a laurel-wreath oval suspended from a ribbon-tie, framed by foliate brilliant-set bands.
This delicately constructed collar, in the Louis XVI style, was made in March
1901 for Queen Mary when Duchess of Cornwall and York, at the beginning of the reign of King Edward VII. It was probably made by R. & S. Garrard & Co., with diamonds in Gold 6 × 34 cm
The diamonds were taken from a scroll and ribbon-pattern collar*, which itself had been made with stones taken from seven 12-pointed stars and a pair of diamond star earrings, given by Queen Mary’s grandmother, the Duchess of Cambridge, in 1885. These gifts, in 1885, were presumably to mark the Princess’s 18th birthday.
Diamonds were also removed from a floral diamond spray given by her aunt, Augusta, Grand Duchess of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, in the same year 1885.

Queen Mary, like her mother-in-law Queen Alexandra, favoured deep collar necklaces for most of her life, due to her long slim neck and the high fashion of the time. The style was not adopted either by Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, to whom the necklace was given when Duchess of York, or by The Queen, who inherited it in 2002, who has worn it only once.
* No reference has been found to the creation of this necklace in the Garrard ledgers; the firm supplied four diamonds and repaired it early in 1902 (Garrard RL51, fol. 266, 30 January 1902, £1 15s). Equally, there is no reference to this necklace in the Cartier archive (an attribution suggested in Munn 2001, p. 133).**

More details of the jewels of Princess Beatrice >>

Prinzessin Beatrice von Battenberg erhielt von Ihrer Mutter der Königin von England ein Fringe „Fransen“ Diadem aus Diamanten, das für Königin Victoria ihm Jahr 1866 gefertigt wurde. Es war eine der wenigen Diademe, die Königin Victoria bis ins späte Alter trug, weil es leicht gearbeitet war und im Gegensatz zu den grossen Diademen ihr keine Kopfschmerzen bereitete. Zusammen mit grossen Diamant Ohrringen, einem Diamant Halsband, mehreren kleineren Broschen und Diamant Ährenbroschen ist sie auf einem offiziellen Bild zum Kronjubiläum dargestellt.

Die Königin Victoria besass noch andere „Fringe“ Fransen oder Strahlen Diademe…

zum Teil vererbt aus der Familie wie auch diese:

Wedding gift to George V and Queen Mary, when Duke and Duchess of York, from Sir Augustus and Lady Harris, 6 July 1893

A pair of engine-turned gold opera glasses, scattered with diamonds and ringed with pearls at both the looking and viewing ends of each glass, the central hinge with a diamond-set octagonal twister and pearl finial.

Tiffany & Co. were well known for their production of luxury items but opera glasses of gold were rare – usually the surfaces were mother of pearl or enamel, in imitation of eighteenth-century pieces. Here the firm have used engine-turning to create a decorative surface to the gold, which has been adorned with rose-cut diamonds.

It will be on display at the exhibition of  „Gold“ . Glittering gold accessories spanning six generations of Queens and Consorts go on display in Scotland for the first time, at The Queen’s Gallery, Palace of Holyroodhouse, 27 March –
