magnify Aquamarine and diamond necklace

Mappin & Webb, Rio de Janeiro

The necklace and a matching pair of earrings were a Coronation gift to The Queen from the President and People of Brazil in 1953. The perfectly matched stones are in diamond and platinum settings. The original detachable pendant of the necklace was mounted in the centre of the tiara by Garrards and has been replaced by a smaller stone, also detachable.
