The Cartier Diadem, was set with 1,033 brilliants, 84 baton diamonds and 17 diamond beads, account dated 8 January 1948, £5,000;
Three brooches in the form of roses, with tremblant brilliant centres, the petals pavé-set with brilliants.
THE THREE brooches – one large and two small – were originally the detachable parts of a Cartier tiara, which entered the London branch as stock in 1939 and was purchased (together with the necklace) by the Nizam of Hyderabad as a wedding present for Princess Elizabeth in 1947.
Above, a picture of the three different rose brooches, which was earlier, in the platinum diadem on top, to compare.
