Queen Marie-Amelie's Sapphires | The Court Jeweller

I don't like the tiara but the rest of the parure is stunning and regal. One of the most majestic I have seen.

Such a shame, they should have sold the large baroque pearl and kept the rest of the pieces if they were in need of money.

According to Marlene Koenig who runs the blog Royal Musings the main reason for selling the items was the enormous insurance costs. Also the difficulty to divide them between the many heirs of Infanta Alicia - she had three children, seventeen grandchildren and thirty-eight great-grandchildren.
I agree that it's a shame that the items had to be sold and I'm sure the family did so with a heavy heart, but they have no use for them really.
