That would be a spectacular addition for any collection. Is the Duke of Aosta selling it or has it already been sold once?

I believe belongs to Pss M. Gabrielle of Italy, she has worn it as a necklace on two occassions at least.

The princess had a jewelry collection that was larger than that of the Belgian Queen. Much of it has been auctioned of already.

Maria Gabriella di Savoia ? How did an Aosta heirloom end with her? She is no descendant of Maria Vittoria dal Pozzo della Cisterna ? Maybe it was inherited or discreetly bought by the Savoia branch from their Aosta cousins ?

It is a fa-bu-lous diadem.

The jewellery collection of the Belgian Queen is not really a high bar, is it?

To be fair, part of that collection actually came from Belgium, via her mother. The Belgian kings could have bought back some of the pieces from the Savoys, but showed no interest apparently.

There is an auction in Vienna with some lovely heirloom pieces. Not much information about provenance, but quite a bit of 19th century diamond jewelry.

Prince Charles of the Belgians , Count of Flandres gave his great Fabergé/leuchtenberg tiara to his Sister Marie José who never wore it because she was to old.
Princess Maria Gabriella sold it and sold other belgian jewels such as the Countess of Flanders small tiara. It was often said from a Noble Family.

Back to the Belgian Royals , they never bought their family jewels during Auctions. King Baudouin had the buy Queen Elisabeth Cartier tiara !
I never understood why the Queen gave the tiara to Leopold and not to the Reigning Queen ?

Princess Mathilde received a tiara from the Belgian Nobility. Great ;
But Princess Claire received nothing so King Albert II had to buy a tiara. AN Auction at that time sold a royal tiara , but he said : It is too expensive. But he bought a very expensive Boat Alpa , one year later a bigger one and now it is to sale for more then half of the Price .

There are some lovely items for sale in this auction. Some of these pieces could be welcome additions to the jewel boxes of Mathilde, Mary and M-M.

The Belgians seem to have made some very silly decisions regarding the family jewels are now worse off than some of the non reigning houses on the jewel front.

Very fair. I only hope the Queen has been quielty buying more jewels so that the Crown Princess has a reasonable jewel box as and when she starts to perform royal duties.

Thank you for sharing. Fascinating jewellery at fascinating prices. I suppose they are all collector's items now.
