Queen Elizabeth of the United Kingdom's Turquoise Tiara

Creation:  This tiara was made by Garrard circa 1900.  Queen Elizabeth had the top diamond border removed.

Materials:  diamonds and Persian turquoises set in gold and platinum
Queen Elizabeth
Princess Margaret
Princess Margaret
Provenance: 
  1. Queen Elizabeth of the United Kingdom; from her mother-in-law on the occasion of her 1923 marriage to King George VI of the United Kingdom
  2. Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon; from her mother on the occasion of her 21st birthday in

Questions:
  • Did this tiara belong to Queen Mary before she gave it to Queen Elizabeth?
  • Was this tiara inherited by Princess Margaret's children in 2002 or did it return to the Queen's Collection like the Lotus Flower Tiara?
