In February 2015, Ashdean had mentioned a turquoise, pearl and diamond fringe necklace owned by Birgitta, Duchess of Gloucester, and Annie had managed to find a picture of this necklace, which is very seldomly seen: |

Unfortunately, we could not, by then, find the origin of this necklace.
I have found another picture of this necklace, worn in 1953 (according to Alamy's caption), worn by Princess Alice, Duchess of Gloucester:
