Why? They were gifts of no "official" significance to India.

No, no, dear Lady, Britain does not have enough jewels. Nobody, even Imperial Russia, had enough jewels. The more jewels the merrier. Besides a major complaint, albeit a trivial one, is that Queen Elizabeth wears only a small number of the tiaras and other wondrous and toothsome objects in her most royal possession and leaves other delights just shut away in the cold, dark, dank and dreary vaults which are supposedly under Buckingham Palace. If some kind soul would send me the directions I would fly over to Londan and rent a room on the ground floor near the Palace and buy a shovel on the order of the Red Haired League of Conan Doyle and dig away. After all what she does not use she could not possibly miss. And I could then post pictures of these unloved goodies on the RF. But nobody ever has enough jewels. And diamonds are everybody's best friend. Cheers.

Art treasures, and similarly jewels, are some of the best ambassadors a country has. The Anglo-Indian jewels were GIVEN to the British royal family, and accordingly there is no need to return them. Besides, at least someone is wearing them. If they were returned, they'd just be gathering dust in some Delhi museum, like the Napoleonic jewels in the Smithsonian in the United States.

Stolen Jewels

It is sad that I have to say this, but I would think that it should have been understood and done long time ago! Most of the British and Persian Jewels are stolen diamonds and goods from india and its temples (for ex: Darya-e-noor, kohinoor, the hope diamond, etc), I and many indians personally feel that it should be returned. < ed Warren >

This is how I have understood the conflict. Sigvard needed money when he married and lost his title and sold most of the jewels he had inherited from his mother. The diadem however he pawned by his father in hope that he later would be able to pay back the loan. The king understood it as if he had bought the tiara but he let his son borrow it sometimes for his wife to wear. When the king died he left the tiara to Sigvard's son who later soled it to king Carl Gustav. Sigvard thought the transaction was wrong since he and not his son was the owner of the diadem.

In Matriarch, Anne Edwards wrote: The Queen had heard through a Lady-in-Waiting that for Christmas he (Edward) had given Mrs. Simpson jewels valued at over 50,000 pounds, including several pieces that had been in the Royal Family for generations.

This Christmas was in 1935. Is this true that Prince Edward gave Wallis any Royal Jewels?
