Orange blossom parure

Prince Albert presented Queen Victoria with elements from this parure between 1839 and 1846. The first piece, a brooch (RCIN 65306), was sent to Victoria in celebration of their betrothal. The wreath was the final piece, presented to her on their sixth wedding anniversary. Victoria, writing in her Journal noted 'It is entirely his own design, & beautifully carried out.' She continued to wear elements from the parure to celebrate her wedding anniversary throughout her married life.
