However, the photo of Margaret is photoshoped and is a fake source in regards to the number of pendants and brooches to the parure.
One can only spot two identical rosette pendants in the photo of Queen Sofia of Sweden (nee Nassau), i.e. three too make it symmetrical.
Sofia might have had more rosette pendants, but I havenít found any reliable source for this argument.
Princess Ingeborg of Sweden (nee Denmark) inherited the emerald parure from her mother in-law and was pictured with a single rosette pendant.
When Ingeborgís daughters Astrid and Martha married into the Belgium and Norwegian royal family, they both received an emerald gift set from their parents with:
one identical rosette pendant, individually pair of earrings and a brooch. (Astrid and Marthaís earrings and brooch have never been part of the emerald parure).
(I have never seen any photo of the two emerald pendants given to Princess Margaretha that Glenn mentioned, so I know nothing about this).
Queen Sofia with two and Princess Ingeborg with one emerald rosette pendant.
Princess Martha and Astrid with the emerald wedding gift set from their parents with identical rosette pendants (someone might have a better photo of Astrid).
Queen Sonja with Martha's rosette pendant, another squared emerald pendant and a squared emerald bracelet.
I donít know if the last two pieces are original pendants, or other parts of the parure.
