I have the images and will be taking them to the Grand Lodge of the Masons and a regalia shop opposite in the near future.

the alledged gems

I'm not alleging they are 'gems'. Definitely* paste or glass (haven't checked which) and not even well done.
Good point about the size. As the very kind Mr Crissdee says, he is taking the photos to show somebody and size might matter to them. I shall measure up later and email the info to you, crissdee.

*Ok, as with many people in these situations there's a teensy weensy part of me that really really hopes they are diamonds. But they're not. My interest is why it was kicking around the family and roughly how old it is.

Well, my man in London has reported back that it's nothing to do with the Freemasons and the Regalia chappies think it is probably a garter as in Knights of the, possibly a Scottish one which is interesting. I shall have to do some more digging.

So many thanks to Crissdee for completing his mission. :)
