I've never seen this photo before. Queen Mary, wearing the diamond lozenge tiara with thirteen upright pearl spikes, and Lady Bessborough, wearing her lovely art deco tiara, which she sometimes lent to Rose Kennedy.

The Cullinan Diamond can also be removed from the scepter. Queen Mary, consort of King George V, shows off the Cullinan diamond as a hefty brooch.
