According to Roberts in The Queen's Diamonds
p. 210 the second of the bracelets for Queen Mary's chain link choker was made in 1935.** It was designed to incorporate a brooch containing a 9 and three quarter carat diamond which was made in 1934. The brooch was detachable.
I am not sure if we have ever spotted the brooch being worn separately, but I will do a separate post about one possibility.
The brooch section of the chain link choker/bracelets.
I had catalogued the following image as showing the detachable brooch from the chain link choker, but recently realised that I was mistaken.
Does anyone have ideas about what the brooch could be?
From Trooping of the Colour 1935
**Edit: I had initially had a typo and wrote that the second bracelet was made in 1936. It was made in 1935.
