Re: Nellie Melba's Cartier jewels. The diamond necklace/tiara
A website named HAT
(History of Australian Theatre) maintained by Leann Richards has quite an interesting database of people associated with Australian theatre history and related articles.
One article covers Nellie Melba's first tour of Australia in 1902, and for at least one, possibly two of four concerts in Sydney in October 1902 she was already wearing the necklace mounted as a tiara.
The whole article can be found here
Below is the image illustrating the article, apparently a scan or photo taken from a contemporary newspaper report.
