The King Khalid necklace consists of “brilliants, marquises and 20 graduated pear-shaped pendants in openwork claw settings.”1

The necklace was made by the jeweller Harry Winston and was given to Queen Elizabeth II by King Khalid of Saudi Arabia. This happened during an official visit to Saudi Arabia in 1979.

Queen Elizabeth II wore the necklace frequently and also loaned it to the Princess of Wales during the 1980s.
