Queen Mary’s Lover’s Knot Brooch is “in the form of a knotted, brilliant-set bow, the tail of each ribbon made with two articulated joints.”1

Queen Mary bought the brooch from Garrard in 1932, and it became one of six bow brooches she owed. It was bequeathed to Queen Elizabeth II in 1953, who wore it regularly.
