Yet, there is a large diamond in the central cross today.
According to the media William Astor gave Queen Maud a gold bangle with one superb diamond the size of a walnut as a wedding present. I have not found an illustration so I have no idea of the shape of the diamond but I wonder if that diamond might today be set in the central cross of the tiara?
I know this is something which would be almost impossible to verify without court acknowledgement but it is still an intriguing thought. Does any one have other ideas about the origin of the large diamond?
