Geocache Description:

Queen Victoria's Fringe Brooch

Queen Victoria's Fringe Brooch, 1856

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 Queen wearing the Fringe Brooch together with the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara, the Coronation Necklace and the Greville Peardrop earrings, November 2011

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.
