Queen Alexandra’s Wedding Earrings were part of a parure given to the then Princess Alexandra of Denmark by the future King Edward VII as a gift for their wedding.

The earrings consist of a “large pearl encircled by ten brilliant in fancy claw setting.”1 The entire parure by Garrard consisted of a tiara, a necklace, a brooch and these earrings. She wore the entire parure except for the tiara on her wedding day.

They were bequeathed by Queen Mary to Queen Elizabeth II in 1953.
