When you consider caret weight of the bandeau Tiara and earrings (which are huge stone as well), this would easily surpass the British Coronation Necklace. Then you add in the House Diamonds necklace, oh and don't forget the 'little chips' QM is wearing on HER BELT, and we are into the stratosphere of carets. Refresh your memory and gaze at the beauties from the previous post http://members2.boardhost.com/royal-jewels/msg/1490656635.html
Looking at the House Diamonds necklace, I am stunned at the three major emerald cut Diamonds at the front. I would love to know the grading of the central stone, as to me it has a real bluish tinge to it. Additionally, the emerald cut to our right of center looks to be the most clearest / whitest of stones. When you think about their size alone, these three diamonds would have to sell around $10m each if auctioned (which I know would never happen). What would be an estimate on the total value of Diamonds QM is wearing tonight - astronomical!
Regardless of value however, all of the pieces work in sympathy with each other and create a truly spectacular vision.
Can any other posters think of an occasion where the jewels/ combination worn by a royal lady presented such a display of both caret power and beauty? Has the current QM (Maxima) knocked off the past QM (Mary) as the all time diamond queen?
