This is information that has already been released by the Royal Collection, back in 2007 on the web-exhibiton to coincide with the 1947 Wedding Exhibition:
"The stomacher is formed as three linked brooches which can be worn separately. Made for Queen Mary in 1920 with diamonds from two of her wedding presents: the ‘Kapurthala’ stomacher and the ‘Town of Swansea’ crescent, both given in 1893. Given by Queen Mary to Princess Elizabeth for her wedding in 1947."
It seems like a lot of the jewels that are to be featured in this publications have previously been exhibited during the course of various Buckingham Palace Summer Openings, and thus a lot of the information has already been released.
