Re: Princess Astrid's turquoise and Queen Maud
Maybe they redesigned it? We don't know anything for sure. But there are several pieces of turquoises. Astrid's main necklace, is made of the turquoise drops/tops of the diamond tiara and it has several pendants to make the necklace longer or shorter, or to have pendants. There are also a similar necklace that was one of Queen Maud's wedding gifts back in 1896, which has almost similar design as the necklace Astrid wears, but with bows between each turquoise drop.
Many thanks for the great photo OmerH! I didn't have a copy -- only the comparison I did from a much smaller image years ago.
Here is a full length pic of Pss Astrid where the braceletscan be seen too. It does look very similar to the sautoir but not exaactly the same.
