I would guess so. It’s surely an impressive necklace. Something royal families should grab, if they can. A necklace like that need to see the light of day again: on the royal stage.

The articles about the sale don't specify which member but say they are on sale by the Bourbon Parma family.

There are other pieces up for auction in this collection including a tiara. The tiara was said to have been given to the wife of Duke Elia of Bourbon Parma. It seems likely the other jewels belonged to them as well. I guess not impossible but seems likely one person/family put all the pieces up.

The only child of Elia who even married was Infanta Alicia. She died last year. I wonder if it is just a coincidence or if the pieces past to her on the death of her parents and brother, and they are being put up for auction by her heirs.

The Bourbon Parma pearl necklace and a brooch are exquisite and I could picture them on queen Sofia though I doubt they will make their way into the Spanish jewel chest.

Yes I was wondering why Infanta Alicia's daughter in law Anne d'Orleans never wore any of the Bourbon Parma gems,was the relationship sour?

The Faberge aquamarine tiara was made in 1904. It was given as a wedding gift from Frederick Francis IV, Grand Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin to his bride Princess Alexandra of Hanover and Cumberland.
The tiara is up for auction for $230,000.

The estate of Count Oscar Bernadotte of Wisborg, who passed away a few months ago, is auctioning off some historical items including this brooch said to have belonged to Queen Josefina of Sweden and Norway. After her death it was inherited by her son King Oscar II of Sweden and Norway, his son Prince Oscar Bernadotte, his daughter Elsa Cedergren, her brother Count Carl Bernadotte and then his son Oscar Bernadotte.*
Prince Oscar's wife, Princess Ebba is seen wearing the brooch on their gold wedding celebrations on March 5 1938.*
The brooch is made of gold and silver and 10 cm long. It has 9 ct diamonds set "à la trembleuse" and can be divided into three pieces. It was made by Court Jeweller Gustaf Möllenborg around 1860 and comes in a box together with a set of hair and brooch pins.*
The asking price is €14000-19000

Did Queen Josefina receive the brooch as a wedding present?

According to the auction house the brooch was made around 1860 and Queen Josefina married in 1823. In fact she became a widow in 1859. Maybe she had it made for the festivities surrounding her son's coronation in the summer of 1860?

The consort of the current sovereign Prince owns tiaras, but she normally misses state events where tiaras could be worn and, even in the rare occasions when she did attend, she chose not to wear a diadem. I wonder why.
