There are so many pictures of the jewels available online, especially the diamond tiara which went for so much money...

I know that the "historical" jewels of Savoy family, which belonged to Savoy Family and not to the Italian State, so they were a private ownership, had been deposied in May 1946 in the caveau of the Banca d'Italia, and they are still there...I don't know if Savoy Family can take them back or if, after 1946, the republican italian government has dispossessed them.

You can view some of the Aosta jewels on this page
http://www.angelfire.com/realm3/casasavoia/fifteen.html
It seems that at least the Aosta knots and diamond tiara is out of the vaults.

The pearl and diamond demi parure is most impressive. Princess Olga would look wonderful while wearing it. Perhaps they will have official photos taken in honor of the pregnancy. Any of these family jewels would add a very glam touch.

At the former royal palace of Venaria Reale, near Turin, opened an exhibition on the jewels of the Savoy family (and the jewels of Our Lady of Oropa). I would say a great occasion, but I haven't finally understood which jewels are exposed: our "dear" Vittorio Emanuele promised to lend the queen Margherita diamonds and pearls thiara (so that this piece was chosen as logo of the exhibition) but then denied it.
And as far as the jewels kept in the bank of Italy, is it possible that they have gone out without having any relevance on the press?
the exhibition will last until the 10th January.

I found out something more: between other jewels there are the wedding keep-sake of Umberto and Maria Josè, the savoy knots brooch, the bracelet king Carlo Alberto gave to her daughter in law Maria Adelaide as wedding-gift, the Aosta diamond thiara with knots and stars and a flower thiara that can be partioned in 4 brooches (never heard about the latter, someone has info or pics?).
Amedeo of Savoy was at the opening and at least the Aosta thiara must have been lent by him.

Other jewels were lent by Maria Gabriella and other noble families. Also a diamond parure of queen Maria Teresa, Carlo Alberto's wife, was expected from VE and also that didn't arrive.
As far as the jewels kept in Bank of Italy, it is announced that they will be shown in 2011 for the 150th anniversary of Italy's unification.

Princess Astrid of the Belgians is wearing one of the Aoste tiara and the necklace. It is a loan from her stepmother because Astrid has no jewelry and she is the only one who can wear them for official evening receptions at the Belgian Court.
I may understand but it is sad , that a Princess who has no official life anymore , may sell her jewelry for having an appartment or house for themselves or her children.

Someone sent me this great photo of Princess Clothilde wearing some serious bling. I don't know whether the jewels are a loan or from her own collection. I tend to think they're a loan...but they're stunning.

Unfortunately we haven't seen the jewels for the 150th anniversary
Maybe the dispute between the italian state and the Savoy family is not resolved.
Here in Italy we haven't heard any news recently about the jewels.

It's pretty, but it really doesn't do that much for me.
