I don't know how many rosette pendants it was, but this photo is not a reliable source.
: Thank you for your input Knightship and the

: taken in connection with the coronation of
: George V has been photoshopped. Is there any

: your photo of Queen Sofia in your post it is
: evident that emerald rosette pendants equal

: Princess Märtha and Queen Astrid did exists.
: And if now it is also true that Princess

: Princess Margrethe could have two. But of

: Many have argued that there were seven

: However, the photo of Margaret is

: One can only spot two identical rosette

: Sofia might have had more rosette pendants,

: 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 Ingeborg’s 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
: Martha’s earrings and brooch have never been
: part of the emerald parure).
: (I have never seen any photo of the two

: nothing about this).
: Queen Sofia with two and Princess Ingeborg
: with one emerald rosette pendant.
: Princess Martha and Astrid with the emerald

: Queen Sonja with Martha's rosette pendant,
