Diamond Jewels |Queen Mary Marriage Presents

Wedding jewels reflect the taste and style of the time and often the preferences of the groom, but May of Teck was an jewel victim and and she had her own taste. Although most antique wedding jewelry has been dismantled and remade, select pieces have survived.

On the picture above, from the year 1901 - we see an arrangement of a lot of her gifts:

1 - The ‘Girls of Great Britain’ tiara Garrards, 1893; altered 1914 A wedding present for Princess May of Teck (the future Queen Mary) from the ‘Girls of Great Britain and Ireland’, bought with money raised by a committee chaired by Lady Eve Greville. It could also be worn as a necklace. Queen Mary later replaced the pearl finials with diamonds and removed the lozenge-pattern bandeau from the base so that it could be worn as a headband. Both tiara and bandeau were given by Queen Mary to Princess Elizabeth as wedding presents. In 1969 the bandeau was reunited with the tiara M:7 x 21 x 19.5cm

2 - Diamond Riviere Necklace, (gift from Prince of Wales - future King Edward)
This necklace was to be Mary's wedding gift for her marriage to the Duke of Clarence. On February 27, 1892 . Queen Mary wore the necklace at her wedding
