Interesting - if you study the photo carefully, it is clear that the "Photoshop" of the day was scratching out/inking in where details were altered. You can see that Alex's neck has been narrowed front and back to give her a slimmer, more elegant neckline!
: I came across the description below of an
: unidentified tiara worn by Queen Alexandra
: probably in late 1896.
: From Australian Town and Country Journal
: 23 January 1897.
: I wonder if the description might fit the
: jewel Queen Alexandra wore in front of the
: Queen Victoria's small diamond crown as in
: the photo below? (I suspect that the pendant
: is attached to Queen Alexandra's veil, not
: the jewel above)
