What an interesting history, an absolutely stunning piece hidden away for a very long time and suddenly, Voila!, it appears, then disappears.
A mysterious necklace indeed. It reminds me of stories about jewelry with bad histories associated with them, ie. the Hope Diamond. This piece has no such myth written about it so it's puzzling why it languishes for long periods of time. The picture of Queen Juliana is my favorite formal picture of HM, thanks John.
