In 1920, Queen Mary had Garrards design a diamond and pearl stomacher. This stomacher has remained in the Royal Collection and has been worn as originally intended: a collection of three broaches. The exquisite workmanship is typical of the standard demanded by Queen Mary for her jewels. In recent times, Queen Elizabeth II has again started to wear this amazing jewel. Queen Mary gave it to the Queen as a wedding gift in 1943.
