As consort of HM King Rama VI, she often wore jewels that belonged to the king's mother, Queen Sri Bajarindra. The tiara/necklace belonged to a European Nobleman, and was acquired by HM King Rama V on his visit to Europe, as a present for HM Queen Sri Bajarindra. The necklace was made in a European design by a Thai jeweller to match the tiara for HM Queen Sri Bajarindra. The Suite also encompasses a large bracelet/brooch of similar design.
