That is a very interesting question, thank you Andrew.
I have often wondered if the very large sapphire Dianna, Princess of Wales, wore initially as a brooch and then later as the centre of a pearl choker, was perhaps part of Mrs Greveille's jewels.
As far as I know, no one has traced that large sapphire to any royal lady prior to QEQM and Diana, Princess of Wales.
But, the current thoughts that QEQM purchased the sapphire at some stage, may be correct, I certainly don't know.
