At the 1997 Royal Gala Performance of Swan Lake which took place at the Royal Albert Hall in London, Princess Diana wore the much famous necklace Swan Lake Suite.
Created by Garrards, the Princess chose five of her favourite South Sea pearls that hung from the main silver drop on the necklace. Garrards had also made matching earrings. It so happened that both the necklace and the earrings were not fully finished at the time of the ballet. So the Princess returned them to Garrards for them to be completed. Destiny had something else written for Lady Diana. Sadly enough, the Princess died before she could get an opportunity to wear the finished pieces. Few years later, the Swan Lake Suite was then privately sold to an English couple.
