The sapphire necklace could be the Tsar & Tsarina's anniversary choker just lost in the mass of necklaces Alexandra is wearing. Then with the Ladies of Bristol necklace hanging from the long diamond riviere further down necklace..
I think the pic is a also sketch/ttouch-up and we know how reliable they can be.
: Queen Alexandrine´s tiara reminds a little the

: When I was hunting for information about the
: jewels worn by Queen Alexandrine at the gala
: opera performance, I noticed that none of
: the other papers mentioned that Queen
: Alexandra wore a sapphire necklace.
: I wonder if I incorrectly interpreted the
: description in The Times 12 May 1914 of
: Queen Alexandra wearing "a diamond and
: a sapphire necklace" ?
: Other descriptions of Queen Alexandra's
: necklace mention a pendant, although no
: coloured gemstone is mentioned. For example
: The Daily Telegraph 12 May 1914 --
: I suspect that HM may have worn one of her
: colliers resille, perhaps with a sapphire
: pendant. Queen Alexandra is reported to have
: have had at least 2 large sapphires, so it
: is a possibility. (one which springs to mind
: is the Ladies of Bristol sapphire pendant;
: the other is a large sapphire brooch she is
: said to have worn) Of course HM may have
: worn only diamonds and the mention of a
: sapphire in The Times may be a mistake.
: Ladies of Bristol pendant.
