I don't think I have ever seen anything which might match the necklace in the British collection. Photos seem to be scarce and not 100% clear.
Below is the clearest image I could find but, unfortunately, the database would only show a close up of part of the necklace, even though in a thumbnail preview the entire necklace could be seen.
Most of the references I have to Queen Alexandra wearing a sapphire necklace are from pre 1909, although one is from 1914; however, given the occasion (a State Opera during the visit of the King and Queen of Denmark), I suspect that Queen Alexandra would have worn the sapphire necklace given to her by the Czar and Empress for her silver wedding anniversary.
