Necklace and Earrings presented by the Corporation of the City of London

The necklace ". . . consists of 32 Golconda diamonds (old English cut), the centre stone, from which the rest graduate, weighing 13 carats 3 1-32 grains. The beauty of this collection of stones was represented to lie in the uniformity and harmony of size, shape and brilliancy.
The earrings are equal in quality to the necklace, and consist of very large brilliant tops and drops with diamonds between, the top stones weighing 12½ carats, and the drops, which are said to be matchless, 17¼ carats, the whole weight of necklace and earrings being 171 ½ ¼ 1/16 carats.”

The centre stone of the necklace was valued at £5,000, while the total value of the gift was £10,000. Both items were made by Garrard and Co.

The diamond rivière and earrings with pear-shaped diamond pendants were the gift of the Corporation of the City of London and the Princess wore the necklace on the day of her wedding.

The future Queen Alexandra often wore the necklace and the earrings, without the diamond drops. The Princess of Wales added the diamond drops to her diamond collet necklaces as pendants and sometimes even to the diamond and pearl necklace that she received as the wedding gift of the Prince of Wales.
