A set of carved coral(?) jewellery. 
Once owned by Queen Farida of Egypt.

A gift from my father. He gave me these a couple of years ago, I must have shown you these before...
At the time I thought I was to young to wear them, and I think I still am... Which is a real pitty since they are oh so very pretty.
