Thanks Boffer. It is a curious one.
I wonder if it was an experiment because I cannot recall seeing that selection worn by anyone else.
: Yes. That is the alternating diamond and pearl
: necklace that Queen Mary wore often,
: bequeathing it to Princess Margaret in 1953,
: who added a detachable pendant, it is now
: worn by Lady Sarah Chatto.
: The origins of how Queen Mary acquired it
: are unknown, however due to the abundance of
: diamonds and pearls in her collection, if it
: was not a gift, it is likely that it was a
: commission using her own stones.
