Re: The Thibaw ruby
Yes, I did do a post on a large ruby worn by Queen Alexandra at an opera or concert, but I doubt if it would have been the one we are discussing.
On another occasion Alexandra was said to have worn a large ruby in a brooch, but once again I doubt it would have been the Thibaw ruby.
Without photos we can never be totally sure, but I suspect that there would have been press comment - or at least comment in diaries and letters --if either Queen Alexandra or Queen Victoria wore the famed ruby.
Whilst you are probably spot on wasn't there a post you started on RJWMB (I don't go onto the site any more) about Queen Alexandra wearing a large ruby?
