A Symbolic Token of Devotion: National token from South Wales to Princess Alexandra, Duchess of York (later Queen Alexandra), circa 1864. This exquisite piece was crafted by renowned jewelers Messrs. Hunt and Roskell, showcasing their mastery in combining precious stones with intricate design. The badge's upper part is shaped like a bouquet, featuring emeralds, diamonds, and pearls that seem to dance across the surface. At its center lies a diamond pin supporting the leek (the symbol of Wales), suspended by a gold chain on a bed of high-relief diamonds set amidst emerald hues. The entire piece is encased in an ornate frame adorned with enamel work, studded with diamonds and emeralds, featuring three pendants. The central pendant depicts St. David, the patron saint of Wales; the right-hand one represents the dragon emblem of Wales; while the left-side pendant displays the arms of Wales. The accompanying bracelet boasts a stunning centerpiece – an emerald surrounded by diamonds on a circlet formed from entwined leeks and scrolls adorned with pearls, gold, and fine brilliants. This magnificent token was presented to Princess Alexandra as a symbol of devotion from South Wales in 1864.
