Now, it's not that I don't like the piece at all, it's how she's wearing it. I don't think it looks good as a necklace, it would look better in it's original state which is a tiara. It's very mis-matchy to me too, since she has a pearl and diamond tiara, I would figure she would have worn diamond and pearl earrings and a pearl and diamond choker then maybe throw in a brooch.

Like this: http://img18.imagevenue.com/img.php?...ONJA_006_4.jpg

2. This gold and diamond flower necklace and earrings. This just looks tacky to me, something you'd find at a yard sale. With the jewels at her disposal, she could have done way better.

I agree with you in 1st time. She souldnt wear that necklace.
But in 2nd time- I dont know, but I like that earrings and necklace.
She tries to wear unnusual- modern type of jewelry. And for 90% I like that jewels.

Bahahahahaha! Maxie, I was just thinking the very same thing! It looks like it's acrylic or something. I love aquamarines but I think they need to be faceted and MORE DIAMONDS please

I disagree - if she wore the necklace as a tiara, it would end up on this site all over again! I honestly don't think I've seen anything more ghastly! I think you can still arrange poppies and buttons to look agreeable, but not belt buckles!

Maybe she should lend it to one of the Moroccan princesses and they can use it as one of those belts they wear for formal functions. It would probably look better on them than her.:)

if i could redesign that necklace i would take the big D's and move them closer to the stone, mirror them halfway on top of each other and tilted maybe 30 degrees. it would look somewhat like a monogram. it would offer a nice base to the stone.

it's the only rescue i can think of.

There are pieces that are beyond redemption (this is one of them) and this is something I imagine in Snoop Dogg not in a Royal so of course this is one of the worst things I've ever seen
not to mention that the necklace and the tiara aren't matched in the least! this is truly a jewlery disaster, please tell me it was the 80's, no one would wear something like this in these days (I think )

Well, Good people, here we go again. I would suggest that what is needed with the above horror, which is beyond redemption-whether it is on the head or around the neck or in the style of some distant aboriginal tribe and used to bedeck other normally not so public parts of the anatomy-it is still a disaster-is to melt the thing down and start over!!!!! Such a nice sapphire too. May I suggest, as I have all too frequently, that the good MT needs to fire her jeweler make the jewels into a new and lovlier tiara.

They do this all the time. The Burmese ruby tiara of QEII is a perfect example. She just had them yank out the diamonds from the Nizim of Heyderabad tiara and got Garrard to take some 96 rubies given by the people of Burma and put them with the recycled diamonds and presto!! a new and splendid goodie with which to bedeck her most royal person.

So MT sould take the horror and redo it. May I suggest Queen Mary's honeycomb tiara as a starting point. Of course that originally had a large sapphire as its centerpiece but then then they went out and ruinged it and put a kunzinite-whatever that is- or an emerald, which does not work, in its place.

You may consult the Bible-ie Geoffrey Munn's Tiaras, a history of splendor-as I do not have the ability, access or pictures to poste for a maginificent picture of Queen Mary in all her fomidable majesty wearing the above cited jewel. If I were to try and post such a thing, being a total mechanical idiot, Warren would see the ghastly results and have a fit and I have caused him enough headaches already. Cheers. Thomas Parkman

I like this as a headpiece. (At least better than as a necklace.)
And it fits so well with the necklace, earrings and her shirt.

Oh My G...

This is not a necklace for a shy person.

It looks like a traffic light, a scarecrow and a neck lengthening tool all in one.

There are even more pix and history to it

This looks very art deco-y, but I still think it would look better on a morrocan belt, that big sapphire would look great.

...I agree! Somehow I see it on the catwalks of Paris, but not anywhere above the waist!!

Same goes for Gloria's necklace. Come to think of it, it looks very much like a high-class S&M contraption (like a doggy lead)...

Oh, and that brooch thingy she's wearing isn't the most elegant piece of jewellery either!
