: But nice worn over a glove, as Queen Elizabeth
: wore it. It does appear quite long in the
: Devonshire Ball picture, if the lower loop
: is the bracelet.
I'm also entirely convinced, tha lower loop is the bracelet (which I also never noticed before!). But the top part (left from the lace) is (IMO) the end of the necklace, while the loop under this part should be the bracelet.
Then I found another nice jewel on The Duchess of Teck's fancy picture: Left, on her neckline does she wear the Emperor of Austria's brooch (formerly knwon as Teck Corsage Brooch). It nearly disappears in the white lace trimmed on the neckline but the hanging pearl led me to it .
Over the stomacher is something worn that looks like another parts of a necklace(?) or similar brooches(?) with sapphires(?) surrounded by diamonds(?). Interesting piece... any ideas?
The Duchess wears the same stomacher as seen on the rght picture in one of Nellies older posts: http://members2.boardhost.com/royal-jewels/msg/1338542630.html. There also added with these sapphire(?) clusters.
