Those aren't earrings. The article notes that HM had two pieces removed to shorten the necklace; those pieces are what we see in the pic.

It is indeed a beautiful piece and also a bit of an 'eye-catcher' best worn with a V-neck dress. Maybe it's a bit too loud for HM in her advanced years?

I was thinking the same Viv,maybe we might see some of the younger royals wearing it.

I definitely agree that this piece suits a younger royal. I've always considered it a bulky piece, too, but that diamond drop is just magnificent.

Stunning, part of the exquisite Greville loot which had such lovely feminine pieces!
A more youthful wearer, how about the duchess of Cambridge, she seems to need a necklace

This is one of my favorites necklaces ever! I considered this one prettier than the other ones Queen Elizabeth has.

Just an observation....this pic from the Windsor Horse Show is one of the VERY few times that I can remember seeing HM in a day dress without her triple strand of pearls! The very instant I saw this pic, that is the first thing I thought of....I guess I consider her triple strand her trademark! Just thought I would share it with everyone!

It's certainly a change and refreshing to see her with a different strand of pearls. Nice to see HM mix it up a bit.

The single-strand does look unusual - and a bit spare.
Mixing it up, or maybe the favourite three-strand was in at the jewellers for maintenance.
The Ladies of India Delhi Durbar brooch with its huge carved emerald is not bad either!

Well spotted, but I'll take the brooch. You guys fight over the pearls

I noticed the brooch but couldn't remember its name; thanks, Warren. And I'd definitely take that over the strand of pearls, too!

This has nothing to do with Tiaras.

This thread is called "Tiaras, Necklaces, etc." so that covers a broad spectrum of jewels.

I may be wrong here but is it possible that Queen Alexandra is wearing the base of The George IV State Diadem as a chocker in this picture? I don't see any info saying that the base can be worn that way.

I don't think the pearls of the State Diadem can be removed to be worn as a necklace. Besides, Alexandra (as the Queen now) had a huge number of pearl necklaces of every imaginable length and style so I doubt she would resort to taking the base off the Diadem.

On a different note, that's a beautiful picture of Queen Alexandra. And she is wearing her famous serpent bracelet which personally I like a lot.
