King George V gave his daughter a truly magnificent parure of sapphires
and diamonds as his wedding gift. It consisted of Queen
Victoria's diamond and sapphire tiara, her diamond and sapphire cluster
necklace with Prince Albert's 1845 brooch as a detachable oval pendant
and a bracelet of sapphire and diamond clusters.
Princess Mary, Viscountess Lascelles wore this parure at her first dinner
party and dance where she and her husband entered her parents as the honoured
guests at Chesterfield House. King George wrote in his diary "Dear
Mary looked charming and wore my sapphires."
