Queen Mary’s Bangles each consist of “39 brilliants, the gold sides finely engraved.”1

The traditional Indian ornaments were a wedding present to the then Princess Mary of Teck from the Bombay Presidency, an administrative subdivision of India. The committee which raised the funds was chaired by Lucy Ada, Baroness Harris, whose husband was governor of Bombay.

The bangles were among the wedding presents for the then Princess Elizabeth in 1947.
