The Duchess of G is one of the minor royals who has the largest amount of jewels, yet she is elegantly unostentatious. She'l pull out the pieces when needed, and the rest of the time she will leave us hints and fragrances of her collection. I love her!

I agree with Auntie.Especially the Diamond and the Diamond/Emerald tiara are both masterpieces.

Does anybody have photos of the Diamond and the D'n'Emerald Tiaras?
The Duchess wore the Honeysuckle Tiara at the Guildhall Banquet for the Indian President. She wore it with the Pink gem.

The Duchess has a great collection.

A couple of the links that showed some of these treasure are no longer working. Does anyone have some pics or another website that has pictures of her jewellery.

On another note, can anyone recommend a book on the British Royal Jewels (does one exists?).
I think I saw on another thread that the Royal Jewellery by Suzy Menkes is not that great, if I recall.

I have Field's "The Queen's Jewels" and I love it. I have Menkes book and I love it, too. Munn's "Tiaras: A History of Splendor" is the bible for use joolies.

The tiara is, as Warren stated, the Honeysuckle Palmette tiara with one of the changeable centerpieces. The necklace is absolutely beautiful. The Gloucester's have a gorgeous collection of jewels.

The Duchess wore the same combination to a Banqueting House function some years ago, except on that occasion she also had a diamond and emerald brooch which served to pin the sash to her shoulder. Rather than describing it, you can see it in post #4 of this thread.

Does anyone know the jewels HRH wore the return banquet this week for the state visit? It is hard to see in the pictures the parure she has on.

Thank you! :-)

The same is the case with the Countess of St Andrews and, of course, Freddy Windsor will inherit all his mothers things for his wife who will not even have a title other than Lady.......Windsor.
I don't think that there is a problem with Gloucester jewels moving away from the main line . If we think about them , half are historical and half not . I mean , Alice received the turquoise parure as a wedding gift but the Iveagh tiara and the diamond rivieres were Mary's personal jewels with no previous royal history. The emerald tiara was also a gift bought by the Duke specifically for the wedding and I think that also the majority of the previous Duchess's smaller jewels (brooches earrings etc)hadn't a significant royal connection tracing before QMary or were gifts from her Scottish relatives. And the Indian tiara before ending up with the Gloucesters, was already the property of another minor member of the extended British family (which strictly speaking . I can't tell if it was even a British royal) So apart from the turquoise parure and the large pearl brooch(didn't it belong to QAlexandra?) I don't think that they are a loss to the main Family's treasure trove .

I also do not believe we will be seeing the Gloucester jewels move away from the family anytime soon. The turquoise parue given to Alice was a gift to Queen Mary as a wedding gift from her parents, The Duke and Duchess of Teck. I'm not certain of the provence prior to that, but I consider it to be a "historical family piece" and would be very sad to see it leave the family.
The Indian tiara was originally owned by HH Princess Marie-Louise, daughter of HRH Princess Helena, the fifth child of HM Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. HH Princess Marie Louise (called "Louie") by the family, also left a spectacular diamond bracelet to Queen Mary and an additional tiara (later sold at auction) to HRH Princess Patricia of Connaught.
