Thanks for the response, LadyK. You're right, Wallis Simpson would have definitely changed the history of the British monarchy. And based on their behavior, I bet she and Edward VIII would have had some wild parties at Buckingham Palace.

I'll see what I can do with pics of her and the British royal jewels (I'm not too sure that Queen Mary won't claw her way out of her crypt to stop it from happening, though!)

I've reloaded the links that didn't work before so here goes try number two:

Queen Sofia in the Amethyst Necklace Tiara:

Hope these work!

Okay, here's the Princess Olga ones. She was actually engaged to King Frederik IX of Denmark but broke it off. If she hadn't, we would have had a princess of Greece & Denmark sitting on the throne as Queen Olga of Denmark. Here's what she might have looked like in the Danish jewels:

Great work, Mapmaker!

AAAAAAHHHH!!! It's like Tara Reid, Britney Spears, and Paris Hilton all rolled into one. When I opened it.....hold on...sorry, I just threw up in my mouth a little bit. I'm glad Guillaume got over his infatuation with her.

Wow, how beautiful was princess Marie Grabielle of Saboy, and the shell-shaped tiara llooks stunning on her. She really has the regal look to carry off that tiara.

Good job, Wymanda. It is kind of strange to see her wearing what is now a very well-known piece of jewelry.

Great work again. It is actually one of my favourite royal stories of the 20th century, the Olga-Frederik break-up, together with the failed engagement of Juliana and Karl of Sweden (or Peter and/or Paul of Greece).

Actually she would not have had the Khedive to wear as that came with Ingrid from Sweden.

As did the ruby tiara, but still it looks great on Olga (but her elegance would even make the swedish Jeep-tiara acceptable probably )

You're right, wymanda. I forgot that it was Margaret of Connaught's engagement in Egypt.

Marengo, thanks for the response, also. I looked at what I have and was under the impression that Queen Desiree's ruby parure was originally worn in Denmark by Queen Alexandrine, pre-dating Queen Ingrid, who only embellished the original design. Can you please let me know if that is incorrect? Thanks in advance.

Hope to have my efforts with Wallis up soon.

Actually I automatically assumed it came to Denmark with Queen Ingrid, as she is Swedish. But it could have been Queen Lovisa to of course, am am not to sure now. In the last case it would indeed have been worn by Queen Alexandrine.

The ruby Parure was given to princess Lovisa of Sweden by her grandmother, Queen Joséfine of Sweden when she married the then danish Crown prince Frederik in 1869. Red and White like the danish Flag the Dannebrog. But it was only a loan and when Queen Joséfine died a few years later Lovisa inherited it. The Tiara was given in 1898 to Duchess Alexandrine of Mecklenburg the bride of her oldest son the future Christian X. who inherited the Rest of the parure after the death of his mother in 1926. In 1935 the entire parure was given to princess Ingrid of Sweden when she married the future Frederik IX.

Thanks, Stefan, for the update.

Alright, fasten your seatbelts and put on your coats. Hell may be freezing over (or at least Queen Mary and Elizabeth the Queen Mum may be flipping in their crypts). Here is a look at what might have been if Edward VIII had not abdicated:

Keep in mind that some of the other famous pieces brought to England from and through Queen Mary were gifted to many different members of the British Royal Family. I have, therefore, limited these posts to jewelry worn by the Queen Mum.

Boucheron Honeycomb Tiara:

Deli Dhurbar Tiara:

Indian Ruby Tiara:

Persian Turquoise Tiara:

http://img487.imageshack.us/my.php?i...kcircleds3.jpg

Teck Crescent Tiara:
http://img527.imageshack.us/my.php?i...rescentqa0.jpg


I almost feel like I'm preaching blasphemy, but the Duchess of Windsor actually looks attractive in a couple of these. Enjoy!
