Re: clearer pic of the head ornament Oops!

I realise that I should have used the wording "strongly graduated" in my previous post, as it is clear that the elements in the headdress worn by the Duchess of Teck are graduated. |
Rather than change my post, I decided to acknowledge my mistake openly, and do this post instead.
: Many thanks for the image Nellie. I feel that
: it is based on the photo of the Duchess of
: Teck in the first photo I posted. The top of
: the dress and all the jewels appear to be
: the same; but the image does clearly show
: the "circles" we associate with
: the necklace.
: I don't know whether the Duchess was
: wearing the end parts of the necklace (I am
: presuming that it may be divisible into
: separate parts) or if a separate bracelet
: One factor which inclines me to think there
: may be a bracelet is that the circles (or
: hoops as some prefer to call them) do not
: appear to be graduated in the headdress worn
: by the Duchess of Teck. In the necklace,
: especially in some photos of Princess
: Margaret, the graduation is obvious.
: I suspect that the central portion in
: Nellie's image of the headdress was probably
: the largest of the Duchess' sapphire
: brooches - the same as when the Duchess was
: photographed wearing this configuration on
: other occasions.
: Graduation of the elements in the necklace.
: Duchess wearing headdress with the largest
