Do you know something about these two pair of earrings worn by Queen Victoria?

1) the big earring she wore on her wedding day ( you can see them also in that photo Google Images)
2) in a page I've discovered that these are Queen Victoria's fringe earrings: Google Images is it true?

I believe these were later turned into necklace pendants by Q Alexandra and later were given to QMaud ,IMO these are the same big diamond earrings that Q Sonia of Norway wears

Dear Sunflower thank you for your answer. I've just found on the net (Turkish diamond rosettes |Queen Victoria of England and Great Britain) that Queen Victoria's Turkish/Rosette necklace and earrings were given to her son Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught.
Unfortunately I've not found new informations about Queen Victoria's Fringe Earrings.

[my bolding]
Regarding the earrings, I think you may be reading too much into it. It says "[Queen Victoria] is wearing her heart-shaped diamond pendant together with the rosette necklace, which she later gave to her son Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught." It doesn't refer to the earrings. The "heart-shaped diamond pendant" is an attachment to the rosette necklace as seen in the illustration.

I was looking that photo of Queen Mary and I noticed something.
Royal Turquoise Tiara - Parure | Queen Mary, Princess of Teck
She's wearing 3 necklaces: may the one on the top be the base of the Girls of Great Britain tiara? I know that she removed it from the tiara and later Queen Elizabeth re-united the two parts.
What do you think about it?

The base of the Girls of Great Britain Tiara incorporates diamonds in a distinctive alternate lozange and brilliant-cut pattern set between two fairly solid bars of diamonds.

Beautiful tiara that would be wonderful to see again. I wonder if the Queen feels its restoration would be economically worthwhile to do so when there are so many other wearable tiaras, but this would certainly look lovely on Kate as another tiara to consider. I think the diamonds have the old-style rose cut, though, so they may not have the brilliance and fire of the modern cut gems.

This is truly a timeless tiara! Prince Albert has great taste! I wish we could see this tiara worn today.

What a little beauty. So delicate yet loaded with diamonds and sapphires. I really hope the Harewoods haven't sold it, given its regal provenance, and that one of these days we'll see it adorning one of the females from the family.

I cant help but thinking how wonderful this would be on the Duchess of Cambridge, and how it would go so nicely with her engagement ring. Seeing how she favors smaller "bling", it think it would be perfect on Catherine.

For me, this tiara ranks high on my list of the tiaras I'd like to play with! It's got everything you'd want to see in a tiara - delicacy, intricacy of workmanship, DIAMONDS - and what really appeals to me is the height. That's why I also like the Poltimore so much, too.

Not going to happen as the tiara belongs to the Earls of Harewood
