|The Pearl and Sapphire Necklace with Cartier Clips at the sides|
The clips are in traditional Cartier style and were created by the firm in 1931. The Duke of Kent purchased them for his wife, Princess Marina, in late 1930s.

In her will, Marina left the clips to her younger son, Prince Michael of Kent. Princess Michael is a big fan of sapphire jewellery as well so we occasionally see these pieces in action, so to speak. Marie Christine wears them separately, together, or most often, incorporated into her sapphire and pearl necklace.
