The tiara is a small all diamonds tiara which Queen Mary wore quite often. It's current whereabouts is unknown.

Queen Mary of England's wedding present to her daughter, Princess Mary, consisted of a single large sapphire surrounded by 14 diamonds. It resembled Prince Albert's sapphire and diamond brooch given by him to Queen Victoria as a wedding present.
In May of 1858 Garrards made a set of three bow brooches, two large and one small, out of 506 diamonds supplied by Queen Victoria.

In 1893 a committee was formed by Lady Eve Greville to raise money from the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland to purchase a wedding gift for Princess Mary of Teck.
They collected more than 5,000 pounds. The diamond tiara came from Garrards.
In 1863 Garrards designed a pair of large pearl earrings.
Each was surrounded by ten diamonds in a cluster shape.
Albert Edward, the Prince of Wales, gave them as a wedding gift to Princess Alexandra.

They are all stunning and my favourite is also the magnificent The Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara,which the queen wore during her recent State Visit to the Republic of Ireland.
