So gorgeous, and check out that choker! Yes, please! The ring's not bad either.....
Not a fan of the chocker, but I adore the earrings. They're elegant but simple, and Catherine pulls them off quite well.

In november 2003 had been sold by the Christi's the sapphire of Queen Maria of Romania. The sapphire had been registered for the first time by Cartier around 1912 and the stone was bigger than an egg. It was a precious sapphire with 478 karat and with origins from Sri Lanka. Only two sapphires in the world had been placed before this exquisite gem: Star of India with 563 karat and the sapphire belonged to the Peter the Great with 547 karat and which can be seen in Dresda.
The precious sapphire had been purchased by King Ferdinand of Romania as a gift for his wife Queen Maria. After her death the sapphire had passed to Queen Elena , mother of King Michael of Romania. The last picture of the sapphire was from june 1948 , the wedding of Princess Ana de Bourbon - Parma with Michael.

I don't know if you're referring to the pearl and sapphire choker, Daria, because I'm in love with this piece and really want to see it brought back for use again. So I'm glad I won't have to fight you over it!

And I agree, the PA sapphire brooch is in a class of its own.

Thank you for posting the photos!

That necklace is SO beautiful! I hear that it was dismantled after it was purchased, however. Can anyone confirm?

Excluding Caroline and Queen Marie Ameile's tiaras, I love all these tiaras. My favorite is the Swedish tiara.

In my book, sapphires, rubies and emeralds are the best ones for tiaras. I love colored gems and stones!

All wonderful, but The Leuchtenberg Sapphire of Queen Silvia breathtaking. I adore this tiara. Also noticed the Belgian Sapphire not did notice far beautiful. I do not like at all the Portland Sapphire tiara very boring.

I would think the tiara would have gone to Louise's children or her husbands family.
We'll never know.

Does anyone have any idea where this tiara, the Sapphire Bandeau Tiara, once belonging to Empress Maria Feodorovna and now belongs to the British Royal family is now? The last time it was seen was on Princess Margaret. It's such a beautiful piece! Name:  ImageUploadedByThe Royals Community1453479792.604258.jpg

Empress Marie Feodorovnas Sapphire Bandeau is a very beautiful piece. As it hasn't been seen at all since Princess Margaret, It's probably still in that mystery jewel vault deep down under Buckingham Palace :-D

Maybe they are keeping it for a future wife of Prince Harry ?

I also love QEII:s sapphire suite that she got from her father KGVI

But my favourite sapphires is the Leuchtenberg Sapphire Parure and the Dutch Sapphire parures.

Royal Sapphire Jewelry

Well this is only a photoshop pic but I I think it's still a good color one. I think it would look awesome on Kate if she ever decides to wear it. I mean she does have/borrow a lot of sapphire jewelry so...I hope this one comes out to play soon.Name:  ImageUploadedByThe Royals Community1453567517.507204.jpg
