The “Allnatt” diamond, named after its first owner, British sportsman Major Alfred Ernest Allnatt, is a rare fancy vivid yellow stone weighing 101.29 carats. Cartier mounted the diamond into a floral design, closely resembling Queen Elizabeth’s Williamson Pink diamond brooch, which she received as a wedding gift in 1947.
