The King Faisal necklace is described as being “channel-set with baguettes, suspending claw-set brilliant” and having “11 graduated pear-shaped pendants.”1
The King Faisal necklace has a total of 83.94 metric carats and was made by Harry Winston in 1952. It stayed in stock until 1967, when it was purchased by King Faisal of Saudi Arabia. He presented it to Queen Elizabeth II during his State Visit to the United Kingdom that same year.
Queen Elizabeth II has worn it often since. She also loaned it to her daughters-in-law, The Princess of Wales in 1983 and the Countess of Wessex in 2012.
