Her May birthstone jewelry formed an important part of her jewelry wardrobe, but one piece that created a special place in her heart was the famous art deco choker she received from the Queen Mother. This necklace was originally designed with 16 cabochon emeralds and was one of the jewelry that formed the Delhi Durbar parure. Queen Mary remodeled it in 1920’s and brought it down to 14 emeralds set in platinum in art deco style. She picked up this timeless jewelry to pass on to Diana as her wedding gift.
