Tiffany and Co – 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 –

Princess Helen of Waldeck-Pyrmont | Duchess of Albany | Jewels

Schmuck und Juwelen | Hochzeits Geschenke für die Prinzessin Helen von Waldeck-Pyrmont anlässlich Ihrer Hochzeit mit dem Prinzen Leopold von England, Herzog von Albany.
Prinzessin Helen, wie sie sich nach der Hochzeit mit dem englischen Prinzen nannte, um sich von der Tochter von Queen Victoria, Prinzessin Helena, zu unterscheiden.
Alter Schmuck erzählt immer eine Geschichte – und verleiht der Trägerin einen ganz besonderen Zauber, das weiß man in den Königshäuser und vererbt, diese Stücke gerne weiter, so wie hier von der Herzogin an Ihre Tochter Alice.

Wedding gifts and Royal Presents for the future Duchess of Albany

other wedding gifts:
There are different pictures of the wedding – one in the newspaper -a sketch- which she wore, the necklace and the Waldeck Tiara…and a later version for the officiel photo ..with her „new“ jewels.

I think she wore, in tradition (the last time) the tiara of her family, the Waldeck Tiara and had pinned the sprays together- and on her gown…
The diamond spray brooch, was later given to her daughter Princess Alice Countess of Athlone ..
