This was made in 1858, to replace Queen Charlotte's necklace that had been lost of Hanover.
It used 28 stones.
Queen Mary removed two large stones to use as earrings in 1911, (these were thus replaced by 3 stones from Queen Adelaide's Collet Necklace); it thus contained 29 stones.
However, in 1953, The Queen shortened it from 29 stones to 25 stones.
