Could the necklace be made of jet? Donít know date of picture but she could be in mourning.
Queen Mary was not a fan of jet and gave pieces to the Museum of London which might explain lack of wear by other royal women.
Recently I posted photos on Instagram showing Queen Mary wearing her black and white pearl bracelet, now worn by QEII, and also a photo of Queen Mary wearing a black pearl necklace.
We also know that Queen Mary had black pearl earrings.
Has anyone ever seen any other photos of Queen Mary with black pearls?
In many ways I am surprised that we haven't seen at least the necklace being worn by another royal lady.
