"Granny's Chips", I think the Royal Family called the biggest necklace of diamonds. Queen Mary was nothing if not ostentatious and certainly knew her power; if she came to your palace and saw something she loved (even if an ancient family heirloom), she'd mention it---and you'd better be packing it up so she could take back with her, or you'd be black-listed, and on the outs with the "swells"!

Karoline Reuss zu Greiz: The betrothal of Princess Caroline and Wilhelm Ernst, the reigning Grand Duke of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach since 1901, was announced on 10 December 1902. At Buckeburg Castle (the home of her uncle), they married on 30 April 1903. Caroline was reportedly very against the match; at the last second of the wedding, she attempted to draw back, only to be persuaded most forcibly by Emperor Wilhelm II and Empress Augusta Viktoria to proceed with the marriage.
