Spectacular emerald jewelry belonged Miss Sackville-West.
Lavish to a degree were the gifts bestowed upon their high fortunate daughter by Lord and Lady Sackville themselves. Their many tokens of deep parental affection included:
a chain of brilliants, composed of diamonds interspersed with fifteen fine emeralds (the bride's favourite gem) of fabulous value, which can be transformed at will into a double necklet, hair ornament waistband or shoulder-chain.
Other of Lady Sackville’s many presents included a beautiful diamond tiara, in the form of knotted rope, and into each loop of which rubies, diamonds or emeralds can be fixed at will and worth a fortune,
a handsome corsage ornament in diamonds,
brilliant Empire comb with ten large emeralds berries and ten diamond leaves,
a massive emerald brooch with a large square emerald in the centre of a diamond brooch;
two emerald rings - one with a square emerald;
two ruby and diamond tassels or aiquilletes,
neck ornament of seven large single diamonds,
large heart-shaped ruby pendant and Indian ring with square ruby
Large Cabochon sapphire ring.
valuable set of very dark Russian sables, muffs, stole and a travelling cloak of rich leopard skin —most appropriate when one recollects that leopards support the Dorset armsand an Elizabethan bread chest, inlaid with mother-of-pearl, the only specimen of its kind known.
Beautiful replicas of the old English silver Knole of the time of Charles 11. were presented by Lord Sackville, and a superb ebony and silver mirror (the work of Mr. Schaub, of the British Museum) was given by the bride’s uncle and aunt.
Lady Nicolson’s gift to the bride of beautiful emerald pendant was presented to her ladyship 30 years' ago by the Shah of Persia, when Sir Arthur was appointed to Teheran, and has never been reset, and special reference must also be made to Mr. Rodin's fine statuette.
Lord Sackville’s detachment of the West Kent Yeomanry, from whom the guard of honour was drawn, presented the bride with a beautiful miniature of her father. These many beautiful treasures were rapturously inspected by the many guests at Knole, and here it might be mentioned that the employees on the Knole estate and the townspeople of Sevenoaks were privileged to have special view on Sunday afternoon, upwards of 300 being present.
