Re: Mrs Greville and the question of sapphires

References to the sapphires are proving elusive. I noticed that Sian Evans uses a reference from The Lady 22 July 1914 when she mentions the sapphire necklace which Mrs Greville wore to a State Ball. The Ball, which had been postponed because of the assassination of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand, was eventually held on 16 July 1914; however, Mrs Greville's dress and jewels were not described in any of the other press reports I could access today. In the only reference I saw Sian Evans does not mention a sapphire tiara. For the July 1914 State Ball Mrs Greville wore a diamond tiara.
Thank you for alerting us to the possibility that the jewels worn in 1937 might be sapphires LDMJ.
