Queen Camilla wore a historic necklace during the coronation on Saturday.
Known as “the Coronation Necklace,” it was originally created for Queen Victoria in 1858, according to The Court Jeweller. Made of a total of 26 diamonds, including a giant 22.48-carat pendant called the Lahore diamond.
The stone was originally part of the Lahore Treasure in the Punjab region of what is now Pakistan until 1849, when the area was taken over by British colonists and “presented to Queen Victoria in 1851,” according to the Royal Collection.
