The Queen in the Queen Mary fringe tiara (which can also be worn as a necklace) was made for Queen Mary in 1919. It is not, as has sometimes been claimed, made with diamonds that had belonged to George III but re-uses diamonds taken from a necklace/tiara purchased by Queen Victoria from Collingwood & Co as a wedding present for Queen Mary in 1893. In August 1936, Queen Mary gave the tiara to her daughter in law Queen Elizabeth, wife of George VI.
