I also love blue sapphires,but sapphires come in many many other wonderful colours. Would it not be wonderful to see pink,yellow,green,orange,nd purple sapphires in pictures on this forum,especially if worn by the ladies pictured with blue sapphires? Of course,most of the items pictured are heirloom and/or historic pieces of jewellery,and other coloured sapphires haven'y been quite so fashionable until recently.

Princess Diana's sapphire choker

Hi all. I think I may have come across the origins of Princess Diana's huge sapphire brooch / chocker which was given to her by QEQM. It looks like it came from an obscure tiara that was worned by Queen mary.... does anyone have any additional info? have i discovered something new?

I'm a sucker for sapphire jewelry, even though my birthstone is emerald. I especially like the combination of sapphires, diamonds and pearls. I had The Franklin Mint's copy of Princess Diana's choker/brooch, but it got stolen. I also like QEII's sapphire brooch (I'm not sure which russian brooch it is) that has the pearl pendant. And there's a tiara in Munn's tiara bible that's sapphires, pearls and diamonds that's my favorite. I don't remember off that of my head who it belongs to though.

Cool

Would that be the tiara that is part of the parure of Queen Marie-Amelie of France? Now I have to check my Munn "bible".

Here is my share for this thread:

I absolutely love this brooch - which CP Mary obviously received as a gift for Christians birth.
The brooch is said to have belonged to HRH Princess Margaret of Connaught, who married Crown Prince Gustaf Adolf of Sweden and was the mother of Queen Ingrid of Denmark (Crown Prince Frederik’s grandmother). It is a large sapphire center, diamond encrusted, with pearl strands and drops. Its provenance and design suggest that it dates to the 19th century.

It has been referred to as a gift in Danish media (of course probably with a strict underlying condition that it remains in the family line...). Mary has used it a couple of times since, and the queen has not been seen wearing it as far as I remember, so I would also think it is indeed a gift.

Sapphire ring 'belonged to Anglo-Saxon or Viking royalty' - News, Archaeology - The Independent
A unique gold and sapphire finger ring, found by a metal detectorist and just purchased by the Yorkshire Museum, almost certainly belonged to Anglo-Saxon or Viking royalty, very senior clergy or a leading member of the Anglo-Saxon aristocracy, say historians.
Of very great historical importance, it is the only Anglo-Saxon era sapphire ever found in the ground in Britain. The only other sapphire from the period is the one that the Queen wears in her Imperial State Crown, used at the opening of Parliament. Known as St. Edward’s sapphire, this latter gem was once part of King Edward the Confessor’s finger ring and is now the oldest gem in the British crown jewels.
The association of sapphires with high status – demonstrated by St. Edward’s gem – suggests that the sapphire ring, just purchased by the Yorkshire Museum, is of very substantial historical significance. It was found in a field some six miles to the south of York by a local metal detectorist, Michael Greenhorn, a railway technician, was subsequently declared treasure and has now been bought by the museum for £35,000.

The Leuchtenberg Tiara is now part of Swedish Crown Jewels and is most often worn by Queen Silvia.

Queen Victoria's sapphire tiara belongs to the Harewoods.It was a wedding gift to George V's daughter, Princess Mary who married in to that family.

Thanks for the information, Stefan. I'm afraid I never really understood the difference between Swedish Crown Jewels and Bernadotte Family Foundation, and always thought the Leuchtenberg Tiara belonged to the former.

Diana's sapphire Saudi suite is also very beautiful, but my favorite has always been her magnificent sapphire and pearl choker. That's always been an iconic piece of jewelry to me.

I always loved her sapphire and diamond bracelet attached to a velvet band worn as a choker. So lovely!
