Diamond and platinum necklace

Cartier, London

A wedding present from the Nizam of Hyderabad to Princess Elizabeth in 1947, the necklace was remodelled from an earlier Cartier piece. The double drop pendant, which incorporates 13 emerald-cut diamonds, is detachable from the chain of 38 brilliant-cut open-back collets.
