Geocache Description:


The Coronation Necklace

The Coronation Necklace, 1858
Listen to Gemmologist Christopher Cavey discussing the Coronation Necklace

R. & S. Garrard & Co., 1858
Diamonds, silver, gold, platinum
38.1 cm long

 

This magnificent necklace was made for Queen Victoria by R. & S. Garrard & Co. in 1858.

Franz Xaver Winterhalter, Queen Victoria, 1859, RCIN 405131

It has acquired its name from having been worn at the coronations of Queen Alexandra in 1901, Queen Mary in 1911, Queen Elizabeth in 1937 and Her Majesty The Queen in 1953.

Like almost all inherited royal jewellery, it has undergone complicated changes since it was originally made.

It now consists of 25 graduated cushion-cut brilliant diamonds set in silver with gold links, and a large pendant diamond of 22.48 metric carats, known as the Lahore Diamond.
