Queen Mary Arch Earrings - Silver Plated with Swarovski Elements - Post Style

This set is inspired from the arches of a crown made by Garrard for Queen Mary in 1911 for her Coronation as consort to King George V.  Queen Mary presented it to the Crown Collection in 1914 with the intention of it being the future Queen consortís crown. 

It had been the tradition since Plantagenet times for a Queen not to attend the coronation of her successor.  Queen Mary broke with this tradition in 1937, probably to show solidarity after the abdication of King Edward VIII, and wore the crown as a circlet without arches.
