Queen Victoria's Turkish Wedding Earrings ReplicaHire the most complete set of Replica British Crown Jewels
The Turkish Diamond Parure was a favourite of Queen Victoria. She wore the set on many important occasions which included her own wedding, christenings of some of her children as well as some of their weddings.
Queen Victoria left the necklace to her son, the Duke of Connaught. The set was worn by his wife, the Duchess of Connaught, who wore them at the Coronation of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia in 1896, the Coronation of Edward VII in 1902 and the Coronation of George V in 1911. After the Duchess died in 1917, the jewels were inherited by her only son, Prince Arthur of Connaught. They were later inherited by the 3rd Duke of Fife in 1959, who eventually auctioned the diamond necklace in 1970. The current location of the jewels is unknown.
