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.

I'm not obsessed with royalty...I just think intensely about it.

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?
