magnify Emerald and diamond pendant brooch


The brooch incorporates two of the Cambridge emeralds, one a gold-set cushion-shaped stone, the other a detachable pear-shaped pendant. The brooch could also be fitted into the Delhi Durbar stomacher. When so used by Queen Mary, the two emeralds were separated by the Cullinan VIII brooch.
