This beautiful tiara was a wedding present for Princess May of Teck (the future Queen Mary) from the ‘Girls of Great Britain and Ireland’, bought with money raised by a committee chaired by Lady Eve Greville in 1893. It could also be worn as a necklace. Worn by Queen Mary (left), it was passed to granddaughter Elizabeth (right) on her wedding day. Since then, the regal headpiece has been spotted on the Queen during her visit to Bangladesh in 1983 and, more recently, to a state dinner in Toronto.
