6. The Queen Elizabeth's Coronation Necklace ;
7. A small diamond collet necklace ; (Certaintly from Queen Mary as a present from the former diamond sautoir)

Photo from the Royal jewels of the World 'site :
I would be very grateful if you could give us more information about the swedish royal family.
Thank you so much for your photo !I had never this photo before.
I think you are right ! I think that the other two large diamonds are (which are similar in shape), and now worn by the current Queen has huge diamond earrings, are the top and bottom pendants.
Do you know the weight of these pendants (on least (30 carats ?).
Please find below two other photos :
I would like to know how many diamonds collet necklaces are owned by the Swedish royal family.
Thank you again !
I don't have much in common (sadly) with the late great Dame Elizabeth Taylor but we do share a passion for BIG diamonds and there is a really interesting picture on Dinastas showing Crown Princess Louise of Sweden at the Coronation of King George VI in 1937.
She is wearing what appears to be three necklaces of diamonds, each with a large diamond pendant, which I believe also may be earrings. I hadn't really understood the Swedes to have a lot of large diamonds in their collection, so this picture struck me as interesting.
I have tried to scribble on the picture the jewels I am referring to. I have done a bit of a digging and set out my theory below.
I think that the pendant on the middle necklace is one of the Vasa earrings, An article about the Vasa earrings is available here.
In terms of the other two large diamonds, which are similar in shape, the current Queen has huge diamond earrings, which I believe maybe are the top and bottom pendants and are also the earrings that form part of the Brazilian parure. If not, I am not aware of any other such large stand alone diamonds in the Swedish collection but would love to know if I am mistaken.
Thoughts and comments welcome, in particular if you don't agree with my theory what alternative large diamonds you think these may be.
How many large diamonds and diamond riveres do the Swedish royal family have?
