I thank for your post and thank you for your patience concerning my reply.
The emerald and diamond bracelet
Please note that I have noticed that Mrs Greville was wearing an emerald and diamond bracelet pinned at Mrs Greville's waist in her outfit for the Devonshire House Ball in 1897.
I have the impression that it is the bracelet given by her father as a wedding gift.
The emerald and diamond palm tree brooch
Please also note that I have the impression that Mrs Greville was wearing parts of te emerald and diamond palm tree brooch at the Devonshire Ball.
Please note the following to confirm my position.
1. We have the emerald and diamond bracelet
2. Next (on the right) we have a "emerald" and diamond bow brooch with a central stone.
3. Next (on the right) of the bow brooch I can distinguish the following :
a. the gold stem of the brooch with the central diamond (biggest one) with the small emeralds below.
b. I can also recognize the huge square emerald stone which is the biggest one of the brooch.
c. I have the impression that I can also recognize the tropical flowers (on least one or two).
Consequently, I can recognize parts of the brooch.
Thank you for letting me know what do you think. Which, you can infer, would be greatly appreciated.
The ruby and diamond bow brooch
Thank to Beth, we all know that Margaret Greville was given rubies by her father. We have also been informed that Mrs Greville has worn an huge ruby and diamond bow brooch.
I have also the impression that Mrs Greville was wearing the huge ruby and diamond bow brooch worn by QEQM and on least once by Princess Margaret.
As a matter of fact, I can clearly recognize a huge brooch with the small stones on the top of the dress.
Last but not least, the situation is particularly difficult for me as I can't post anymore photos on the forums. It leads me some difficulties to express myself and confirm you my theories.
Consequently, I would be very grateful, if Beth, could post the enlarged photos on my behalf.
With my deep gratitude to all for all these years and your kind answers.
Thank you your Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
The head wear must be a small unknown tiara.
On Instagram Franck said that he could see the following in these photos of Mrs Greville.
1. An emerald and diamond bracelet pinned at Mrs Greville's waist .
The bracelet in question had been a wedding gift from her father-in-law. The emeralds & diamonds were said to be of equal size.
This information came from items I posted about Mrs Greville's wedding gifts years ago.
Franck raised this issue in a post about an emerald bracelet worn by QEQM which Leslie Field says belonged to Mrs Greville. Franck had told us years ago about Field's article. I fully acknowledged his role in that issue.
2. An emerald brooch worn by Mrs Greville.
When I did a post about his thoughts about the bracelet on Instagram Franck then said he could see the emerald brooch.
Here are some photos. Hopefully, they will help others decide for themselves.
I hope that Franck will have the time in his extremely busy schedule to join in this conversation .
