: While I was doing some very boring household
: shopping late this afternoon, it dawned on
: me that one item in Queen Mary's wedding
: gift lists might hold the key to the source
: of her pearl dog collar now worn by the
: Duchess of Gloucester.
: I recollected having seen this item.
: Hearth and Home 13 July 1893.
: Could the gift of the Thakore of Gondal be
: Queen Mary's diamond and pearl dog collar? I
: don't know but I thought the idea should be
: explored. I don't recollect ever seeing a
: sketch or photo of this particular gift.
: The dog collar I am thinking about
: Perhaps some one has better photos of the
: Duchess of Gloucester wearing this jewel
: which might show the design more clearly.
I think this sounds quite likely Beth, the description with floral & scroll diamonds, rather unusual in a pearl necklace, might fit the bill.
