This necklace could work for any of Letizia, Mette-M, Mathilde or even MAxima

I think that necklace would also be a nice addition to the British jewels. It would be nice to keep it in England.

Fair. However, lovely as the necklace is and could be put to good use by HM, Camilla or Catherine, the "main line" of the BRF have a number of fantastic emerald and diamond necklaces. In a spirit of sharing, I would be quite happy for this to go to some of their European counterparts who has emerald coloured holes in their jewel boxes.

They may have several emerald necklaces but nothing like this one. And with a number of senior royal ladies, it doesn't hurt to have a few pieces of the same stone.

The necklace was on display at the Victoria and Albert museum for 22 years.

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.
