TBF-QA-4 Queen Alexandra's Dagmar Necklace

4.  Queen Alexandra's Dagmar Necklace

   This piece is well documented. However one fact, of particular note, is that it was left by Queen Alexandra to the Crown. The detailed notes in her jewellery inventory, which were used to divide her collection, state that her wishes were that it would be bequeathed as an heirloom of the Crown “on condition that no part of it shall ever be altered”.

   The rest of Queen Alexandra's jewels that are now in The Queen's possession seem to have passed directly to Queen Mary and thence to The Queen as private property.
