      Kent Jewels: Cambridge Sapphire Parure. The parure was created in the second half of 19th century by unknown masters. Queen Mary inherited the Cambridge sapphires from her aunt and godmother, Princess Augusta, Grand Duchess of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, who herself had gotten them from her mother, the Duchess of Cambridge. She presented it as a wedding gift to her own goddaughter, Princess Marina of Greece and Denmark upon the Princess’s 1934 marriage to her son George, The Duke of Kent.
