The Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara - Needleminder
This tiara was worn by Queen Elizabeth, after receiving it as a wedding gift from Queen Mary. Elizabeth reportedly referred to it as "Granny's Tiara."
A wedding present from the ‘Girls of Great Britain and Ireland’ to the Duchess of York, later Queen Mary, in 1893, the tiara was purchased with money raised by a committee chaired by Lady Eva Greville, who became one of Queen Mary’s ladies-in-waiting.
In November 1947, Queen Mary gave the tiara as a wedding present to her granddaughter, Princess Elizabeth. The Queen has worn the tiara regularly throughout her reign and is depicted wearing it on certain issues of British and Commonwealth banknotes and coinage.
