A wedding present for Princess May of Teck (the future Queen Mary) from the ‘Girls of Great Britain and Ireland’, bought with money raised by a committee chaired by Lady Eve Greville in 1893. It could also be worn as a necklace. It was later known by Queen Elizabeth II as 'Granny's Tiara', given to her by her grandmother, Queen Mary
1792. This mourning ring was made to commemorate the death of a child, whose brief life is symbolised by the drooping rosebud on the left-hand side of the plant. According to the inscription, the child was called Butterfield Harrison and died on 14 March 1792 aged 2 years 9 months and 14 days. Although black is the colour most usually associated with mourning, white was used for children and sometimes for the unmarried.
