As far as I know, it became the center of Dianas very famous pearl choker.

There is a photo of the QM wearing it on a State visit. The stones look dark blue but in fact are emeralds.

It is splendid! Has it ever been worn by the current Queen? It is truly wonderful.

From the blog: "In 1907, Margaret Greville purchased an emerald necklace which once belonged to Marie Antoinette. It was bought from Boucheron's, the French jewellery house located in Paris.

"Marie Antoinette, Queen of France, became a victim of the French Revolution and was executed by guillotine on 16 October 1793. After her death the necklace disappeared from sight until Margaret Greville bought it in 1907.

"When Margaret Greville died in 1942, she left her house at Polesden Lacey to the National Trust and she bequeathed the Marie Antoinette necklace and the rest of her jewels to her friend the Queen Mother."


That is a very long while for the necklace to be out of sight. How do we know it is Marie Antoinette's necklace for certain, I wonder. Who had it for over 100 years?

From Her Majesty's Jewel Vault: The Greville Bow Brooch

From the looks of it, I don't like this brooch. It's too big for me.

Wow - I would love to see it worked into an updo. Or at a state banquet where someone took a picture of it for us.

Yes I agree it is a little on the large side but the QM carried it off well,I wonder if we'll see it worn again?

'A little on the large side'! Yes, it's immense! A real statement piece, but with the right outfit and combined with understated earrings it could look gorgeous, even nowadays.

That would look beautiful with Kate's full, long hair. But it's not much the British style. The British Royals seam to either do the full tiara thing, or no hair jewels at all.

Yes, Camilla can rock the big gun tiaras. The Greville is beautiful but it takes a certain person to be able to pull it off IMO and Camilla does.

I was thinking maybe using it in the same way Maxima did on this dress

Good idea. The bow is a bit bigger, but on a similar dress waist line, it would be wonderful to see. I think the dress would have to be black and very basic in style, so the broach was the one big punch.

Would be great to see the Grenville emerald necklace get an outing soon. They are serious stones, up there with the Crown rubies
