Many of us have hunted for photos of the exhibition of tiaras by Cartier in 1911 as it featured Princess Christian's turquoise tiara which had formerly belonged to Queen Victoria. What I think posters are hoping for is a relatively clear photo rather than the indistinct one from the 1911 Coronation.
Alas I have never found a photo of the exhibition.
The UK press did, however, have a photo of the Cartier diamond sautoir which was presented to the lady who was considered to have worn the prettiest gown at the ball which was also held to raise money for the Middlesex hospital. It was won by Lady Diana Manners, later Lady Diana Cooper.
