GOLD CHOKER WITH PEARL FRINGE AND MULTI-GEMSTONE NECKLACE

From 'The Royal Jewels' Revised Edition p.167 by Suzy Menkes, 1986

"...With exquisite, but quite unconscious, irony the Crown Prince and Crown Princess of Jordan presented to the Princess of Wales an antique necklace of Indian origin which recalled the great treasure trove of royal gifts from India over the span of 150 years.  It is an elaborately worked gold choker with a pearl fringe, set with multi-coloured gems, including a central emerald, turquoises and diamonds."

I only found out about this necklace while reading this book.  I am not sure if this was ever worn by Diana or if she had it altered to suit her tastes.  If anyone has any information, it would be greatly appreciated.  At the time the book was written, the Crown Prince of Jordan was the brother of the late King Hussein.

Picture scanned from 'The Story of DIANA' p.105 by David Levenson and Trevor Hall, 1985.  This book doesn't have any page numbers so the numbering I used starts immediately after the family tree page.

 

'WILLIAM' CIRCLE PENDANT ON GOLD WIRE NECKLACE

The yellow gold circle is engraved with the name 'William' in Prince Charles' writing.  This was a present from Charles to Diana after the birth of their son.

BUTTERFLY PENDANT WITH BLUE AND WHITE STONES ON A GOLD NECKLACE

I think the gold necklace is the Omega necklace described above with an added butterfly pendant.  Note the matching earrings.
