Attributed to R. & S. Garrard & Co., 1856
Diamonds, silver, gold
12.6 × 5 cm
This brooch appears originally to have formed the centre of a fringe-pattern chaîne de corsage, made by R. & S. Garrard & Co. for Queen Victoria in 1856.
The brooch is of typically mid-nineteenth century style and now consists of a large emerald cut central stone, which, with the immediately surrounding small brilliant-cut diamonds, is detachable as a separate brooch. Nine graduated pavé-set chains are suspended from the outer row of 12 large brilliant-cut diamonds.
Queen Victoria left the brooch to King Edward VII. Queen Alexandra, Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth all wore it regularly, and in 2002 it passed to Her Majesty The Queen.
