The Nizam of Hyderabad Parure
This wonderful tiara supposedly does not exist anymore. The tiara was, together with a necklace given to HM The Queen by the Nizam of Hyberabad as a coronation-gift.
Made by Cartier and later broken up to be used in new setting, in the Burmese Ruby Rose Tiara, made by Court jeweller Garrard.
The roses of the original tiara were thought to have been taken to be made into Rose Brooches for The Queen.

The Teck Circlet
Made to go along with The Teck Diamond Tiara. In both pictures of Mary Adelaide, above, she is wearing the necklace. The necklace and tiara were passed to the Queen Mother. It is not quite sure whether The Queen Mother loaned or gave the necklace to her daughter, HRH Princess Margaret. If she gave it to her it would have been passed to Margaret's son. Margaret's collection of jewels and tiaras were sold at Christie's in 2006. The Teck necklace was not part of the auction so it is thought that the necklace went back to the current Queen as it was a family heirloom.
