From the Gem Standard

"When you have access to some of the most valuable and famous jewels in the world, why not wear them more often?

For Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, that happened on Tuesday when she wore the Nizam of Hyderabad necklace to the National Portrait Gallery’s gala dinner.

The platinum and diamond Cartier necklace and a matching tiara were a wedding gift presented to Queen Elizabeth upon her marriage in 1947, which she picked out herself. Originally created by Cartier in the 1930′s, the tiara has been transformed over time, but the necklace remains the same and has been worn many times by the Queen, often appearing in official portraits.

While the high street dresses and £20 pound Zara necklaces have all looked great, Catherine is after all the future Queen of England and it is nice to see her in regal jewels."

"This store has a very pleasant environment and Jeff and Janet are both kind, wonderful people. I used Jeff a few times for appraisals and he was very thorough and was happy to answer lots of questions. He uses scientific methods and tests rather than going solely by appearance as some jewelers will try to do, and his expertise is well respected. On one occasion, he even went out of his way to help expedite a deal for me. He has my highest recommendation. Suzanne T., San Rafael, CA
