   This all diamond antique pendant, dating from the 1870s, consists of “a marquise-cut diamond drop within a graduated double border of old-cut diamonds”, with a diamond scroll-motif pendant loop; it was presented by King George V to Queen Mary as a gift to mark her 51st birthday in 1918.[1]

   This pendant subsequently passed to Princess Margaret, and upon her death in 2002 it was sold at auction for “£31,200”.[2]
