Queen Elizabeth II's favourite piece of jewellery is 'incredibly rare' and costs up to £1m

“If these pieces are made up from natural pearls, they are going to be incredibly rare, not to mention valuable.”

Just one single natural pearl is worth around £3,000, according to the experts, which more than suggests that the whole necklace would be incredibly expensive to buy.

If one pearl is worth £3,000, the late Queen’s signature three-strand pearls “could be worth anywhere from £600,000 to £1,000,000”.

Fittingly, the pearls have had a transcendent legacy – much like the monarch herself – and have been passed down to an important relative.
