It is obvious that Mrs Greville had several diamond rings (Vincent Meylan)!
She also bought a diamond ring from Catherine the Great !
However, her biography says that the diamond ring now worn by the DOC is from the Greville Bequest.
: I found the description below of a diamond
: ring owned by Mrs Greville.
: Tatler 18 December 1940
: I suspect that this is where the idea of her
: diamond ring being shaped like a playing
: card comes from; however, the article
: actually suggests that the diamond was a
: square shape set on the diagonal as are
: diamonds on playing cards.
: I would be cautious in concluding that the
: diamond ring worn by QEQM was not part of
: Mrs Greville's inheritance as it is likely
: that Mrs Greville might have had several
: diamond rings.
