: I thought this match already was well known to

: How would a necklace of graduated turquoises
: look like if each stone was surrounded by
: nine diamonds? There would be no symmetry to
: the necklace at all. Typos are not that
: uncommon in publications from the period.

: I agree with all that Knightship says,
: that I doubt if there is a typo in the
: publication. Quality publications from the
: nineteenth-century in the UK tended to be
: accurately type set and proof read.
: The shape of the turquoises in the only
: image I can find of Queen Maud depicted with
: the turquoise elements on the diamond tiara
: do appear to match those in Princess
: Astrid's necklace, although I am doubtful
: about the size. While it is difficult to
: judge, the number of diamonds surrounding
: each turquoise do seem to be more than 9.
