: I came across the newspaper page from the
: Library of Congress collection showing four
: pictures of wedding gifts to the
: then-Duchess of York. Because of these
: photobucket issues, I was not able to post
: this newspaper page at the moment but I
: found a similar picture from Google Images
: so I am posting the link to that one.
: Firstly, let me apologize ahead of time if
: the questions have already been answered
: here before.
: Secondly, I looked through Google Images and
: saw the facts that Queen Elizabeth the Queen
: Mother (either as newly married Duchess of
: York, or Queen Elizabeth as consort of her
: husband, or Queen Mother) had worn at
: various times the Strathmore Rose Tiara
: (gift from her father) and the turquoise and
: diamond tiara, necklace and one brooch (gift
: from King George V)(as shown in the link
: Questions are whether Elizabeth had worn
: before any of the other jewel items shown in
: the link, had she?
: ***the necklace, pair of earrings, at least
: three brooches, a ring, and a bracelet (gift
: from Queen Mary).
: ***the pearl and diamond sautoir necklace
: and the brooch (gift from King George VI as
: Duke of York)
: ***other pieces from the turquoise and
: diamond gift from King George V: a pair of
: earrings, and at least 7 other jewel pieces
: (which surrounded the necklace and tiara).
: I see from a picture of Princess Margaret in
: the Google Images that she wore the
: turquoise and diamond necklace, earrings,
: one brooch and tiara, but not the other
: pieces although it's difficult to see what
: type of jewel these items are in the picture
: Aside from Princess Margaret who wore the
: turquoise and diamond tiara, necklace,
: earrings and brooch, had she worn any other
: above-mentioned pieces? Had anyone else from
: the Royal Family worn any such piece since?
