Another wedding gift with a large sapphire was from the Queen of Greece. This may have been used by Queen Maud for her coronation.
In the coronation photo it appears that Queen Maud is wearing the emerald bracelet given to her by the King of Greece, although it looks to have been reset on a diamond band.
In the replica jewels for the exhibition the Queen's bracelet was depicted as having a faceted emerald.
If Queen Maud used the sapphire given to her by Queen Olga then it too would have been a cabochon stone, not a faceted stone as shown in the replica made for the exhibition.
