Queen Mary’s Love Trophy Collar

(public domain)

Queen Mary’s Love Trophy Collar was made in March 1901 for the future Queen Mary when she was Duchess of Cornwall and York.

The collar is “formed of seven brilliant-set panels, each with an amatory trophy of bow, quiver and torch in a laurel-wreath oval suspended from a ribbon-tie, framed by foliate brilliant-set bands.”1

The diamonds came from stars and diamond star earrings, which had been given by the Duchess of Cambridge, Queen Mary’s grandmother, in 1885 and from a floral spray given by her aunt Augusta, the Grand Duchess of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, also in 1885.

The collar was given to the future Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, and it was inherited by Queen Elizabeth II in 2002.
