Turkish diamonds| Connaught Diamond Necklace| Royal Gift from Queen Victoria


Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught, the third son of Queen Victoria and her special favourite was gifted with her "Turkish diamonds". In the 1850s, Henrietta Ward sketched Queen Victoria wearing her Regal Circlet and her necklace of Turkish rosettes. This sketch is found in Geoffrey Munn’s “Tiaras: A History of Spendour” (plate 58, page 80).

The necklace of rosettes was worn by Queen Victoria on most of her early important occasions, such as her wedding and the christenings of her children Queen Victoria with the diamond necklace>>.

In her last will, Louise Margaret the Duchess of Connaught, bequeathed (after legacies to her other children) "…all my property real and personal…to my son for his absolute use and benefit in the hope but without intending to create any trust that as regards certain articles of jewellery and furniture he will distribute them in accordance with a memorandum I shall leave for him."
So the Turkish rosette necklace was most probably bequeathed to her son Prince Arthur who at the time was not married.

After he married, it was perhaps used by his wife the Duchess of Fife (I couldn’t find any picture of her wearing it). When Prince Arthur died (1938), he was survived by his son (d 1943), his wife (d 1959) and his father (d 1942). The Duchess of Fife was predeceased by her sister (d 1945).

With the Connaught dukedom extinct, the Duchess of Fife left the Turkish rosette necklace to her heir, James Carnegie, who would become the 2nd Duke of Fife.

The necklace was auctioned in London, as "From the collection of his Grace the Duke of Fife" in July 30th, 1970 for £23 000.

Many, many thanks to Jonathan!
