Happy Birthday to Princess Christina, Mrs Magnuson who turns 75 today! To mark the occasion, we are taking a look at her Pearl Choker with a large diamond clasp, worn for a variety of royal events.
In the early years of her royal duties, Princess Christina often wore this ornate diamond brooch to anchor her sash. It seems to be an antique piece that might have family provenance,
In the 1970s, Princess Christina began to use the brooch as a clasp for a three strand pearl choker, which Princess Christina often embellishes with additional strands. After her jewels were stolen in 2012, this choker is one of the few remaining personal jewels of the Princess.
The Pearl Choker has been worn by Princess Christina at formal and evening events for the past few decades and I have no doubt we will see it for years to come.
