TBF-QM-53 Queen Mary’s Diamond and Pearl Necklace

53. Queen Mary’s Diamond and Pearl Necklace

    The origins of this necklace are unclear. Field describes it as “a simple chain set alternately with large pearls and fine collet diamonds”.[1] Queen Mary wore it often both during the day and to evening events, most notably in a photographic sitting with The Queen, when Princess Elizabeth of York.[2]

   This necklace was subsequently bequeathed to Princess Margaret in 1953, and it is now owned and worn by Lady Sarah Chatto.[3]
