The Oriental Circlet, the original diadem consisted of more than 2,600 diamonds with opal accents, all set in gold. Opals were one of Albert's favorite stones, & after receiving this tiara Victoria commissioned an opal necklace, earrings, & brooch to go with. The opals have since been replaced with rubies. Many changes have occurred since the tiara was created. For the initial design, Victoria supplied around half of the diamonds from her existing collection - some of which were once set in jewels owned by Queen Charlotte. The ownership of Queen Charlotte's jewels was disputed by Victoria's relative the King of Hanover, & when it was decided that they rightfully belonged to Hanover this tiara had to go back to the workshop. The Hanover diamonds were removed in 1858 & replaced by a mix of diamonds taken out of other royal jewels & new ones from Garrard. Queen Victoria left this set to the Crown in her will, & when Queen Alexandra inherited it after Victoria's death she changed it again. Apparently believing opals to be unlucky, she replaced them with rubies from a necklace given to Queen Victoria by the ruler of Nepal. She also reduced the size of the tiara: there were originally 17 opals and arches, but only 11 rubies and corresponding arches exist on the piece today. Additionally, the original ledger page from Garrard's notes that parts of the tiara were removable to be replaced with "large single diamonds" for "when a lighter and more simple tiara is required". For all the changes she made, the tiara doesn't seem to have been a favorite of Queen Alexandra, & the same goes for Queen Mary. It passed to The Queen Mother when her husband inherited the throne, & she finally made good use of the revised tiara. When the Queen Mother died in March of 2002, the tiara passed to her daughter, Queen Elizabeth, along with the rest of her estate. This is one of the pieces that she technically could have asked for earlier - after all, it was left to the Crown, & she's been in charge of the Crown since 1952 - but she let it be, supposedly saying "Mummy will give them back."
