According to some notes in 1993 , after the tabloid press claimed that the Queen Mum was selling this suite, Buckingham Palace asked Leslie Field to deny the story, which she did.
The centre is the table of the large amethyst and the "arms" that radiate out are the edges of the facets, which creates the sense of something hanging, but in fact is the central amethyst.
Queen Mary wore the amethyst tiara till her death, a picture was taken, when she visit the royal ballett in the 50th, wearing the tiara.
In the picture above she wore an large amethyst brooch with an frame of fine scrollwork of diamonds, as devante de corsage, with one of the pendants of the earrings. Probably one of her wedding gifts of 1893, which is noted as present from Mr Burdett-Coutts.
