A modern necklace of graduating diamonds, this piece was likely a wedding gift to Alexandra Manley when she married Prince Joachim of Denmark in 1995, and began to be worn soon after the wedding, with the Alexandrine Drop Tiara, and a large pearl pendant, which were paired with coordinating pearl earrings.
