|Diamond and Platinum Necklace|
Rebult from an Earlier Piece
Presented, 1947, to Princess Elizabeth
The Royal Collection
This piece, created by the jewelers at London's Cartier, is actually rebuilt from an earlier Cartier necklace. The necklace was altered so that the Queen could wear the double drop pendants separately from the necklace. The necklace itself contains thirty-eight brilliant-cut, open-back collets as well as emerald-cuts and some substantial cushion-cuts. The double drop pendants incorporate brilliant-cut diamonds with thirteen emerald-cuts which surround two large cushion-cut diamonds and a rather impressive pear-shape.
This would make a nice gift for the Queen’s soon-to-be Granddaughter-in-law. Yes?
