A stunning bracelet which Princess Margaret wore in her official 19th birthday photo has emerged for sale for £40,000.<br />
<br />
The Queen's younger sister sports the Art Deco cultured pearl and diamond bracelet in Royal photographer Cecil Beaton's 1949 portrait taken at Buckingham Palace.<br />
<br />
It is around her left arm as she is captured from the side in a white tulle embroidered dress against a landscape backdrop.<br />
<br />
Beaton recalled in his diary being taken aback by Margaret's beauty and 'piercing blue eyes'. He said she was very engaging with him despite having been out till 5.30am partying in a London nightclub the previous day.<br />
<br />
The bracelet, made by Paris jeweller Cartier, is going under the hammer with London-based auctioneers Dix Noonan Webb.
