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.

Excluding the feather and wreath tiaras, I love all of these tiaras. My absolute favorite is the amethyst tiara.

I'm not one that usually gets into the threads about fashion and jewelry but I just happened to come across this article. To be honest, if I could, I'd love to be able to get dressed up for occasions that Queen Mary's chokers would go with.

I've always known that the Girls of Great Britain and Northern Ireland was the Queen's preferred "go to " tiara but until this article and going off on one of the tangents, I really didn't realize the sentimental value Granny's Tiara holds for her. A very special wedding gift commissioned just for her grandmother was given to her as a wedding gift. That I didn't know. What I also didn't realize is that the pearls in the Lover's Knot tiara were originally on the original GGBNI tiara and it must have really meant something to HM to hand it down to Diana and also just as important that it was returned after her death.

I've got to read up on the jewels more often methinks.

Although I know I am one of the few that do, but I really like the Art Deco Aquamarine Parure. However, I think in amethyst, it would be stunning.
