The Delhi Durbar Tiara: Made by Garrards, especially for Queen Mary during the Delhi Durbar on December 12,1911. Durbar is Hindi, for a ‘ceremonial gathering to pay homage’. The gathering was to install King George V and Queen Mary as Emperor and Empress of India. King George V admired this piece and referred to it as “May’s best tiara”. It was originally worn with detachable emerald drops. The tiara is loaned to Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall by the Queen.
In 1920, Queen Mary had Garrards design a diamond and pearl stomacher. This stomacher has remained in the Royal Collection and has been worn as originally intended: a collection of three broaches. The exquisite workmanship is typical of the standard demanded by Queen Mary for her jewels. Queen Mary gave it to the Queen as a wedding gift in 1943.
