Philip Mountbat- ten started the week of their wedding with & display proving that •hey will start their married life u one of the richest twosomes In Britain, solely on the strength of their jewel gifts. The couple gave a party at M. James' palace yesterday to show Lheir wedding gifts. Daaled guests saw at least $2,000,000 worth of diamonds, rubles, pearls, sapphires and emeralds shimmering In two big display cases. Five huge salons of Henry VIlI's Palace were packed with silverware, [urs, rare furniture, paintings, books, blankets and the variety of offerings to be expected from an empire so diverse and far-flung. None tried to set an overall value on what was ranged around the royal scai-Int reception rooms of the chilly, unlisted old palace. But even that fabulous array was only a fraction of what had been offered to the royal couple and gently rejected for one reason or another. King George and Queen Elizabeth joined Elizabeth and Philip in the throne room of the palace, where the Jewel cases were displayed. Clustered thickly In front of the glittering array were peers and commoners alike, including several Americans whose gifts were among those accepted. Queen Mary, whose collection of Jewels Is world famous, sent her granddaughter nine, pieces. They were two diamond encrusted tiaras, n massive diamond stomacher, two diamond bracelets and a diamond and ruby bracelet, a pair of magnificent blrdscye pearl earrings, and two baguette diamond brooches. King George gave his daughter a diamond and ruby pendant that was worth a king's ran-som and a double string of pearls the siae of marbles South Africa sent an order of the garter ublozo with diamonds am rubies. The governors of the Bank md gave a spectacular diamond waterfall type necklace. Thorp were four diamond tiaras In all—two 1 from Queen Mary, one from the King with a 25-carat diamond as its feature, and a fourth from Queen Elizabeth. Philip's best man, the Marquess of Milford Haven, sent a huge radio- phonograph. Altogether there were our radic-phonogr&phf and a big television phonograph-radio combination from the British Broadcast- ng Company. Princess Margaret gave her sister picnic case. Canada's mink coat was not on display. But in the name of the people and government of •he dominion there was * set of 24 Georgian silver gilt dinner plates dated 1796-, engraved with the Royal coat of arms, and other silver pieces valued at more than $8,000. Other national gifts included a 192-piece china service from tho president of France, a 300-year-old carved oak and walnut chest confining bolts of silk from the Ital- an people, a collection of glass from Sweden, a blue and gold dressing set from Afghanistan, and a price- ess ruby necklace In a carved ivory x>x from Burma.
