Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee Necklace


Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee Necklace In 1887, the “Women of the British Empire” each gave between a penny and a pound to provide a celebratory memorial for the Queen’s fifty years on the throne. Part of the money raised was used to commission a large equestrian statue of Prince Albert but the rest of the money was spent on this necklace, which was presented Queen Victoria on June 24, 1887. The design is of graduated diamond trefoils, each with a pearl centre.
