THE DELHI DURBAR NECKLACE

The three pictures above represent the Queen wearing DELHI DURBAR NECKLACE.

Queen Elizabeth’s great-great-grandmother won a box of emeralds in a lottery. When she passed away, they were left to her wayward son. He, in turn, left them to his mistress. Queen Mary purchased them back from the woman, and they were used to create a necklace. That particular necklace, she wore to the Delhi Durbar.



It was the lavish celebration in India which marked the coronation of her husband, King George V. Not only does the necklace feature the infamous emeralds, but it also contains part of the Cullinan diamond.
