Re: The Lygon, Cotterell or Hambro Tiara - Countess Beauchamp wedding gifts
Subjoined a list of the wedding gifts:
Case family jewels, consisting of a
smaller diamond tiara
diamond and pearl tiara
It would be interesting to have a detailed description of the “smaller diamond tiara” and the “diamond tiara”, wouldn’t it? Could these be the two tiaras worn for the state opening of Parliament in 1922 and 1924? (And it would be at least as interesting to know whether the “diamond and pearl tiara” was reworked for her daughter-in-law Mona.)
