TBF-QM-68 Queen Mary’s Pearl Bracelet

68. Queen Mary’s Pearl Bracelet

   The origins of this bracelet are unclear; it consists of five rows of pearls with “a large, oval, diamond-cluster clasp”.[1] Queen Mary can be seen wearing it in various official photographic sittings, when wearing her other pearl and diamond jewellery.[2] It was bequeathed to The Queen in 1953, upon Queen Mary’s death, and she has worn it occasionally,[3] most notably on her visit to The Vatican in 1961.[4]
