The Princess received several significant jewels as wedding gifts from the people of Scotland.
The gift from the Women of Glasgow was the "Thistle of Scotland
forming a corsage ornament in emeralds and diamonds. It was made by
Edwards and Sons, Court Jewellers, Buchanan Street, Glasgow."

sold for £9000 to Middlemas. "A fine rectangular emerald

to the plain hoop."
