Where’s your favorite range? 🎯
This weekend was a double dose of fun, as some of our gals took an excursion to look at the Queen Mary. An assortment of the various uniforms and divisions that women worn during WWII (from left to right: Red Cross Blood Donor Services, Nurses Aid, Civilian, Red Cross Production Corps, WACS)
The Honeysuckle Tiara 👑
È stata composta da gioielli decostruiti, come Mary era incline a fare. Questa include diamanti esistenti, in gran parte prelevati dalla Surrey Tiara, oltre a nuove pietre fornite nella realizzazione del diadema (è stato realizzato da E. Wolff & Co. per Garrard, circa 1913-14). In secondo luogo, è stato creato un elemento centrale intercambiabile, e sappiamo come a Mary piacesse cambiare i suoi gioielli. In questo caso, la cornice diamantata di motivi di caprifoglio porta ad un centro più grande, che in origine conteneva la spilla Cullinan V a forma di cuore, una grande spilla con zaffiro e diamanti o una spilla topazio rosa. Mary ha regalato la tiara a sua nuora, Alice, la duchessa di Gloucester, come regalo di nozze nel 1935. Gliela donò con un altro elemento centrale: un caprifoglio di diamanti che corrisponde al resto dei motivi della tiara. Né il Cullinan V, lo zaffiro, né gli elementi topazio facevano parte del regalo di nozze; il Cullinan V fu ereditato dalla regina Elisabetta, si dice che la spilla di zaffiro sia stata data alla principessa Margaret, e il topazio rosa fu unito alla tiara quando fu ereditata da Alice alla morte di Mary nel 1953. La tiara Honeysuckle ora è indossata dall'attuale Duchessa di Gloucester, Birgitte, che è la nuora di Alice. Lo indossa con tre elementi diversi: il caprifoglio di diamanti, il topazio rosa e uno smeraldo circondato da diamanti.

If we accept the premise that historical films reveal more about the present than about the period in which they’re set, #MaryQueenOfScots
is a comprehensive - if somewhat heavy-handed - encapsulation of this era of gender fluidity, sharpened misogyny and the MeToo movement. Indeed, Josie Rourke’s camera and framing create an almost palpable sense of the knuckle-biting frustration felt by all the men whose ambitions rest oh-so-inconveniently on the contents of women’s wombs. However, worthy performances aside - #SaoirseRonan
are suitably majestic, but perhaps more notable is another star-in-the-making turn from #JackLowden
as Darnley - it is an air of weighty staginess and a tension-killing string of rather similar, court-intrigue scenes that ultimately cause the whole to become an unsatisfying piece of work. And that’s without even considering the fact that historians have been enraged by certain questionable sequences.
It’s been long assumed that a diamond tiara with removable sapphire center piece was once the property of Empress Maria Feodorovna but a newly found photo seems to prove this wrong. In a picture from 1911, long before the Empress would have disposed of her jewels, Queen Mary is seen wearing the diamond and sapphire brooch which became the center of the tiara. It now seems more likely Queen Mary purchased or had the tiara created in the 1920’s or 30’s. The brooch is a large sapphire surrounded by diamonds which seem to be in a bow design. Queen Mary also attached the brooch to her Honeysuckle Tiara. After Queen Mary’s death the brooch was inherited by Princess Margaret. Princess Margaret was seen wearing the tiara as a young woman but it is unclear if she inherited the tiara or borrowed it from her sister like she borrowed the Cartier Halo Tiara. She wore the brooch throughout her life. The brooch has not been seen since Princess Margaret’s death but it was likely left to one of her children. It was not included in the auction of her jewels. Let’s hope we see it reappear on The Countess of Snowdon or Lady Sarah Chatto.
A special thank you to @russian_treasure
for sending me the picture of Queen Mary wearing the brooch in 1911!

The Delhi Durbar Tiara - one of the largest (dimension wise) in the Windsor collection! 👑
The tiara was originally created for Queen Mary and crafted from other dismantled jewels in her royal collection. Since its creation in 1901 it has unfortunately been altered numerous times. Thankfully though, the tiara has not been changed too much but as you can see in the bottom left picture, originally the piece was topped by the Cambridge emeralds! After these were removed in 1922, Queen Mary then redesigned the tiara by reincorporating the Cullinan III and IV stones (which can now both be found in granny’s chip brooch - view our page to learn more about this fabulous brooch!). These massive diamonds, which have a combined carat weight of 158 carats, were then removed around the time the tiara was loaned to our Queen Mother in 1946. The Queen Mother wore the tiara upon her visit to South Africa in 1947 (see bottom right), but due to the Queen’s smaller statue the tiara did not become one of her favorites and therefore was stored away and locked up in the royal vault from public eye.
After the Queen Mother’s death in 2002, the tiara passed to our current Queen who then loaned it to the Duchess of Cornwall. Thankfully this piece has become one of Camilla’s preferred tiaras and since wearing it for her first ever appearance as a member of the royal family in 2005 has worn it frequently throughout the years. 💎✨ What do you think of this weeks #tiaratuesday

For a moment we saw the sky turned pitch black last night, the moon eclipsed by the shadow casted from the earth. Yet, when we thought life concludes when the sun set and the sky turns black as if suffocating the very life we need, light enters in giving us hope once more. As long as Christ is at the throne, there is victory on the other side of defeat, and light always comes after darkness. 💥🔥 📸: The Queen Mary accompanied by the Super Blood Moon last night. It was a chilly and windy night at the bay but worth it to witness and get a photo of these beauty. 😊😊 #queenmary #superbloodwolfmoon #superbloodwolfmooneclipse2019 #nightphotography #lunareclipse #photooftheday #abc7eyewitness
