The missing purple crystal is completely covered by her train and does not show.
I have not noticed any other crystals missing, but considering how many are on the gown, it is possible that a couple clear crystals are. If so, they're not noticeable or missing in any kind of large quantity. Pearl, The Gibson Debutante as described by The Franklin Mint. The height of the Victorian passion for beauty...
