At last count, I thought the BRF main line had 7 "serious" emerald and diamond necklaces. Could they do with more amonst the 3 current / future Queens remains a subjective question.
In my count I have only included the Delhi Durbar necklace used by HM, the Delhi Durbar choker previoulsy used by Diana, the Godman and the 2 Greville necklaces. Additionally, Camilla has a necklace of square cut emeralds and diamonds that may have been a present from the Saudi's, and Catherine has her emerald and diamond demi-parurue. I have not included any of the "minor" emerald and diamond necklaces that HM has been seen in from time to time.
