Yes, that is the necklace, and here is a much better photo from the King Fahd return banquet in 1987. (Scroll down to picture of QEII in yellow gown and click on it.)
Notice the matching earrings. The site this photo is from identifies the necklace as the King Faisal, but it obviously is not. Here is the King Faisal necklace. (Scroll down to the fifth picture and click on it.)
Gwynnan, do you know at what event your photo was made?
Thanks, Boffer, you are very kind to approve my sleepy reverie! I would only like to know whether this necklace was ever photographed before the 1987 King Fahd return banquet. I think the fact that the Queen wore it then is very suggestive of its having been a gift from King Fahd.
