Diamond Arrow Brooch Hairpin or Headornament|Earl and Countess of Dudley Present Royal Wedding Gifts| Royal Jewels Queen Mary England Queen Mary's brooch
The royal wedding gift from the Earl and Countess of Dudley, to Princess May of Teck, Duchess of Cornwall and York, was a diamond arrow hairpin and brooch wearable also as head ornament. Nothing is known about the Cupid's arrow or Cupid's dart whereabouts.
There is an diamond arrow in the Swedish royal family worn by Queen Silvia and Crown Princess Victoria, but the ends are more static, like the arrows of the style of early 19th century, from the Brazilian empress and Princess Amalie of Beauharnais.
Thank you to Franck!
