Jewel Detective: Romanian Coronation 1922

Romanian sisters: Maria of Yugoslavia and Elisabeth of the Hellenes [source]

One of the sets of jewels worn in this picture, which is from the 1922 coronation of King Ferdinand and Queen Marie of Romania, will be very familiar if you've read the blog recently. On the left, Queen Maria of Yugoslavia (one of Ferdinand and Marie's daughters) wears the Russian emeralds she received from her husband as a wedding gift. On the right, her sister, Queen Elisabeth of the Hellenes, is also decked in jewels. Can you identify any of the pieces she wears?
