I actually meant the pieces of the Savoy family's jewels that were auctioned throughout the 1980s...but yes, Belgium would have a fine collection of jewels were it not for their refusal to create a state foundation or such.

The auction of the Savoy Jewels will take place June 13th.

I went through the entire lot, and I just could not believe what I was seeing-what a shame the family has to sell their jewels--

It's a shame they feel the need to part with such lovely jewels, but it makes me wonder what (if anything) they kept for themselves.

Considering these jewels are property of Princess Marie-Gabriella only (and she does have some other items too, if I recall correctly), I am wondering if the other two daughters of King Umberto received any jewelry from their mother. It seems that MG is selling the items that came from Belgium. I wonder if she received any Italian items too or that those are safely in a family trust headed by the Prince of Napels.

I am sick! Hopefully those jewels will find a new owner worthy of their splendor and history.

Well, IMHO the only two persons worthy enough of wearing a parure from Empress Carlota of Mexico are Queen Paola and CP Mathilde of Belgium. Sadly the King preferred to buy a new yacht over a new tiara.

Isn't alot of the Savoias jewelry held by the Italian state? I think I remember reading somewhere that the family planned to sue the state to get their jewels back?

Interesting that her siblings didn't want the items and the tax bill that went with them, and that she's only keeping some books and a desk.

Well I'm not Marengo and I'm not sure which website you're referring to ..., but there's a Casa Savoia section at the Glittering Royal Events site at:

Italian Crown Jewels

Can anybody inform me of whatever happened to the Italian Crown Jewels after the last King was voted out? Did the collection ever have a crown?

The Italian crown jewels are in safe keeping at the Bank of Italy because their ownership is disputed.

The Jewels in the vault have been discussed in the Savoy Royal Family Jewels thread so the two threads have been merged.

The legal ownership of these jewels - the Italian State or the House of Savoy - has yet to be determined as neither party has made a claim.
