Roxburghe Jewels | Mary Duchess of Roxburghe | Cartier Diamond Tiara | Wedding Gift

Lady Mary Evelyn Hungerford Crewe-Milne was born on March 23. 1915, the only daughter by the second marriage of the first and last Marquess of Crewe to Lady "Peggy" Primrose. She was named after her godmother, Queen Mary.

The Jewish ancestry to which the Duchess was referring was that of her maternal grandmother, Hannah, daughter of Juliana Cohen and Mayer de Rothschild, thus making her a direct descendant of Levi Barent Cohen, head of one of the most important families in Anglo-Jewish history, and of Nathan Rothschild, the founder of the English house of Rothschild.

Her engagement was announced in June 1935 to the young Duke of Roxburghe, of the Royal Horse Guards. He presented her a wonderful diamond ring from Cartier of two pear-shaped diamonds, seen in her engagement portrait above.

Their marriage at Westminster Abbey took place on October 24, 1935 and was considered to be one of the most important society weddings of that year, with Queen Mary and the Duke of Kent attending the reception at Crewe House. Two years later, the Duchess was one of the four train bearers to Queen Elizabeth at the coronation of King George the Sixth, chosen because of her striking brunette looks and deportment.

There were no children and in 1953 the Duchess endured a six week siege at Floors, the Duke’s castle. It was his contention that under Scottish common law a wife lived in her husband’s house by licence only. The dispute was eventually settled out of court; the Duchess left for London and was granted a divorce in December, 1953 because of her husband’s adultery..

After the divorce, the Duchess settled down in a large apartment overlooking Hyde Park, devoting herself to charitable works. She insisted on entertaining with the same Rothschild style of her parents and living up to her family motto, “I know whom I have believed”. Her view of the background which had endowed her with such wealth was that of the born aristocrat. At the time of her death in 2014 she was the last descendant of the two daughters of Hannah de Rothschild and the Earl of Rosebery.

The important diamond tiara was one of her wedding gifts, which was presented to her by the Duke. It is of geometric design, set throughout with circular-cut diamonds surmounted by a graduated row of thirty-one collet-set diamonds, inner circumference approximately 415 mm signed Cartier, fitted case stamped Cartier, the exterior of the case with monogram and coronet for Mary, Duchess of Roxburghe. It is offered at auction in May 2015 by Sotheby's at Geneva for an estimated $300,000 -500,000 USD.
