Crown Princess Martha of Norway received a versatile bracelet when she christened the American Liner "Oslofjord" in Amsterdam 1949.
This pearl bracelet with a squared diamond & emerald clasp can also be mounted as a tiara.
Martha was only photographed with it as a bracelet, but Queen Sonja has worn it as a tiara (December 1968) and as a bracelet.
She has also worn the diamond & emerald clasp on Queen Alexandra's pearl choker.

Hope we will see this piece worn as a tiara soon. It's almost 50 years since the last time!
