Jewel Detective: Lady Londonderry

On the eve of St. Patrick's Day, here's a jewel puzzle from an Irish aristocratic family. Can you identify the jewels worn by Theresa Vane-Tempest-Stewart, Marchioness of Londonderry at the coronation of King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra? (Bonus points if you can share the amusing anecdote that accompanies this particular jewel outing...)
