Dis­cover the ex­quis­ite jew­ellery piece from Cartier which can be worn as a tiara or neck­lace

This spec­tac­u­lar piece, pre­sented by Cartier at the Bi­en­nale des An­ti­quaires in Paris, is a trans­formable piece of jew­ellery that can be worn as a tiara or a neck­lace. The cen­tral pearl, still in its orig­i­nal di­a­mond set­ting, is said to have once be­longed to Queen Mary of Eng­land, wife of Ge­orge V, who passed it down to her daugh­ter. It can be de­tached from the main struc­ture and worn as a pendant. Mea­sur­ing an im­pres­sive 21.82 x 17.6 x 16.4mm, the nat­u­ral pearl is con­sid­ered to be one of the most beau­ti­ful ever dis­cov­ered due to its per­fectly sym­met­ri­cal shape and lus­tre. Along with the pearl, the piece is set with di­a­monds and smaller pearls in gra­dat­ing hues.
