Wedding gifts of the Duchess of Fife

HRH Princess Louise Victoria Alexandra Dagmar of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, Princess of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, Duchess of Saxony, called "Lulu" by her family, on the occasion of her marriage.

The following is the list of jewels received by HRH Princess Louise of Wales on her wedding to the Earl (created Duke) of Fife 1889:

This list is not complete, it includes those gifts of jewellery that were displayed in the large dining room at Marlborough House (home of the bride’s parents) and mentioned in the newspapers. Missing from the list is any gift from grandmother Queen Victoria and most foreign royals attending the wedding. There are also several discrepancies between the various sources, as can be seen under each gift.

Further gifts of jewellery from her fiancé included the ruby and diamond engagement ring; and a diamond collet necklace “which could hardly be surpassed in regard to the size and purity of the stones" [Graphic, 23-24]
The necklaces were in the same casket. The larger one is a string of the purest diamonds, the smallest being the size of a pea and the largest as large as a six-pence. The inner necklace is of smaller, blue-stone diamonds....so rare and perfect that the necklace very probably vied with the other in value."From 'The Sunday Union' (Sacramento, CA)

- The Prince and Princess of Wales The bride’s parents gave several gifts, the most splendid was a diamond fringe tiara, picture left, convertible to a necklace
…of elegant design of alternating and graduating rays, varying from nearly two inches long in the centre to half an inch at the extreme ends”. It was “not dissimilar to that which the Princess of Wales herself wears upon State occasions”.
According to Snowman, the tiara was supplied by Hancock’s, the sketch above see above.
Other gifts from the Prince and Princess of Wales included a splendid dressing-bag, the fittings of which were of gold adorned with coronet and monogram, and (from the Prince alone) two pairs of mother-of pearl opera glasses, beautifully painted with figures and mounted in silver.

- the Princes Albert Victor and George of Wales, Princesses Victoria and Maud of Wales:
diamond and ruby horse-shoe brooch is a gift from the brothers and sisters of the Bride.[The Times];
The diamonds are of uncommon size, and admirably matched. The brooch is in a pale blue velvet case, on the outside of which are the autographs, in gold, of the givers "Eddy," "Georgie," "Toria," and "Harry." [Graphic, 26-27]
