The Aquamarine Pineflower Tiara: Cartier is responsible for this gem and it features aquamarines set in a pine cone motif interspersed with rectangular stones. This piece originally belonged to the Queen Mother. It was an anniversary gift from her husband, King George VI. Among her collection, this wasn't a real favorite. She didn't wear it often before gifting it to her granddaughter, Princess Anne. Anne had the gem altered at some point; she shortened it to make it easier to wear.
