This went unsold -does anyone know if it went up for auction again and was eventually sold or if it might have been lent?

They really are. The tiara is one of my favorite sapphire tiaras, and I really wish it had been bought by someone who would wear it and be photographed in it.

Yeah, I believe this has officially become one of my favorite sapphire tiaras as well! It's so beautiful! If only it were bought by someone who had the opportunity to share it with the world -it's a shame that so many beautiful jewels are slowly going into hiding. ;(

The stomacher is absolutely magnificent and has a Renaissance look to it. All these pieces can certainly rival anything in a royal collection by far.

The duke of Anhalt is putting a pearl necklace that belonged to Amalia of Solms (wife of Stadholder Frederick Henri of Holland, Zeeland etc.) up for auction.

They are expected to sell for 120.000-160.000 euros.
Amalia had access to the best pearls that came with the VOC, the Dutch East India Company.

The pearls will be autioned on May 13th at Sotheby's in Geneva.

Royalty Online

She must have had a lot of pearls. The big pearl necklace of the Dutch RF is supposed to have belonged to her. And empress Frederick also had a pearl necklace that belonged to Amalia. It was inherited by her eldest daughter Victoria, who sold it after WWI to finance her Russian playboy boyfriend.
'
I believe that there is a debate which ones are thé famous pearls of Amalia, but is generally assumed that it was the Prussian necklace.

The Rosenborg tiara sold for CHF 245.000,-

Lot | Sotheby's

Most items sold for double, triple or more than the estimated value.

Princess Amalia's pearls went for CHF 593.000,-

I love that tiara! Since my birthday's coming up, my husband must've bought it for me.

The above link contains photos of the Cartier tiara with a pear-shaped pearl. The pear-shaped pearl in question belonged to Auguste Wilhelmine Luise von Hessen-Kassel, who was the grandmother of Queen Mary (1867-1953). The tiara can be worn as a necklace.

The tiara is a masterpiece. It would have been a perfect piece for Japanese Imperial Princesses.

The above link contains video of the upcoming Christie's jewellery auction in Geneva. Empress Eugenie's "Feuilles de Groseillier" brooch and real pearls from Baroness de Rothschild's collection are among the lots.
