The Duchess of York probably wore the brooch, on the christening of her daughter and some times later in the early years. Nothing is known about the royal christening sapphire and diamond brooch, yet.
...Princess Elizabeth has also given many beautiful golden gifts from the Begum of Bhopal, including a golden napkin ring, and various other necessities.

PRINCESS & PORRINGER British Jewellers Gift Royal Baby The Duchess of York Bruton Street, Mayfair, accepted, on behalf of the Royal baby, the Princess Elizabeth, a siver porringer as gift from the .National Jewellers' Association. The occasion was quite informal. Mr. G. L. Joseph and Captain W. Llewellyn-Amos, bearing the porringer, were presented to the Duchess of York by the Lady-in-Waiting. The Duchess greatly admired the porringer and said it was a very beautiful gift. The baby was afterwards brought in the nurse, and the presentation was made by Mr. Joseph, who said :
For many centuries British goldsmiths and silversmiths have held a pre-eminent position in the world. They have owed this pre-eminence largely to the great interest which has always been taken by the Royal Family in the design and execution of their work. The high standards that have been almost consistently maintained by British goldsmiths and silversmiths have been inspired in a very large measure the reigning family.
From the time, more than years ago, when teapots and candlesticks were fashioned for the use of Queen Anne, down the present day, royal patronage has continued to foster the art of the smith in precious metals, and, with but a brief intermission, has succeeded in maintaining that craft on a very high level of taste and skill. It our hope that your Royal Highness will look upon this porringer worthy of the traditions of those craftsmen who produced the Queen Anne candlesticks and the Georgian tea services which are to-day so high, treasured by collectors. We hope, too, that the porringer will take its plaice, in due time, upon the breakfast table of the first Baby in the Land, and may even be banged imperiously upon the table by her infant hands. In graciously accepting from our craft this silver porringer, Your Royal Highness is continuing a long-established Royal tradition and paying high honour to our craft."
The Duchess of York again expressed her pleasure at the gift, and held out the porringer to the Baby Princess, who, attracted the bright object, held out both nands to take it. " You see, she likes it once," said the Duchess. The porringer is an example of the best qualities of British craftsmanship. On the finely executed panels which form the body and cover is the emblem of the York Rose in repousse. The two handles are of ivory carved in the form of thistles, while the cover is surmounted by an ivory and silver coronet, used by the younger members of the Royal Blood. The porringer is inscribed, " Homage to the Princess Elizabeth, Alexandra, Mary of York."
