The necklace has a number of round diamonds and banquette shaped diamonds, which creates a unique effect . The matching tiara is also full with diamonds and the two royal diamond jewelry pieces were created to appear at the grandest ceremony that ever happened in Egypt since the time of the pharaohs, the wedding of Queen Nazli’s eldest daughter.
