: While googling for something else I found this
: picture of Thyra of Hannover (née Princess
: of Denmark) wearing a necklace that
: intrigues me much.
: The picture is small and sepia, so I have no
: idea if it has any coloured stones, but I
: find this necklace very similar in shape to
: the Sutherland rubi and pearl necklace. It
: is said the pearls were given by Queen Marie
: Antoinette to her good friend Lady
: Sutherland a year prior to her execution.
: The necklace was part of the Christie's
: Magnificent Jewelry sale in London on
: December 2007.
: If its the same necklace what was the
: connection with Thyra of Hannover? If its a
: diferent one (we know that jewelers
: sometimes made several items of jewelry of
: very similar design according to the fashion
: of the time) is it known its provenance or
: wherabouts? Any other royal lady wearing
: this necklace?
: Thank you in advance.
: To my eyes Pss Thyra necklace pearls seem a
: big longer than the ones on the Sutherland,
: but the picture is too small to be sure.
