I wonder if the Queen wore the amethyst necklace in this painting of her... hard to say ! Photo found on Wikipedia site : https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Queen_Mary_by_Solomon_Joseph_Solomon.jpg
I also found that photo of Queen Mary, photo published in the Illustrated London News of February 1949.
We can say that she wore the amethyst tiara and most probably the matching upper part of the earrings.
If the Queen gave at some point the suite to the Duchess of York, later Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, it may have been after her death in 1953, in her will... And why not inherited directly by Queen Elizabeth II ?
