Re: Duchess of Gloucester. Buckle brooch
The photo was taken in mid October 1935, so after the engagement. An engagement present is one possibility, but it is possible that the Duchess had this jewel for a long time. She was a mature lady at the time of her wedding, and her family was very well off.
