A wedding present for Princess Mary of Teck in 1893 (the future Queen Mary) from the ‘Girls of Great Britain and Ireland’, bought with money raised by a committee chaired by Lady Eve Greville. Queen Mary later replaced the pearl finials with diamonds and removed the lozenge-pattern bandeau from the base so that it could be worn as a headband. Both tiara and bandeau were given by Queen Mary to Princess Elizabeth as wedding presents. In 1969 the bandeau was reunited with the tiara.
