Its making my year !!!
Oh My God... A photographic evidence of 2 rarely seen Queen Victoria's jewels worn by Queen Alexandra !!
Before Queen Elizabeth II wearing the Kent amethyst parure, no photographic evidence of it being worn.
Same think for the swag pearl and diamond brooch, no photographic evidence before Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother wore it !!!
I think we can hope that more photos like that still exist.
I would like to see:
-Photo of Queen Victoria's opal parure (now the Crown ruby parure being worn by Queen Alexandra or Queen Mary...
-Photo of Queen Victoria's sapphire parure worn between the death of the Queen and the wedding of Mary, The Princess Royal.
-Photo of Queen Victoria's mother, in gala dress with jewels
For the jeweled belt worn at The Waverley Ball by Queen Alexandra, I think its simply paste.
Thanks again !
