Were the stones really blue in color ? Sapphires or blue diamonds ?

Thanks for the info. It seems this stone is a favourite in the family (mine too). Maybe Kate would get the rest of the stones...

The necklace by Faberge may be the one Alice wore but as we do not know defintely that Alices necklace was sapphies and not one of other stones in a identical diamond setting...

according the book where that picture was taken it was the necklace of Alice and they were Sapphires. But with mislabeled stuff you will never know...

I saw the necklace at a exhibition at Wartski in London...and spoke to Geoffery Munn...Alice was not mentioned.

yes, a few of us went after that card .... and a few others.


No, but as I said, I haven't really looked either. The ebay card was the first one I went after.
