|Queen Mary's Boucheron Loop Tiara|
She wore the tiara for a series of portraits in not long after, wearing the elaborate dress she wore for the coronation of Edward VII and an array of other jewels including the Kensington Bow Brooch (now worn by the Queen), and the Surrey Fringe Tiara as a necklace (later broken up for other tiaras) underneath the elaborate diamond choker known as Queen Mary's Love Trophy Collar (which still exists, unworn in the Queen's vault).
|Mary, as Princess of Wales|
Current home of those diamonds, the Delhi Durbar TiaraOf all the jewelry reconfigures Queen Mary made, I think this might be the piece I'm most glad she dismantled. The Delhi Durbar is not only more in the style that I associate with her, but a more sophisticated and impressive design all around. She had a good eye, she did.
