Queen Marie-Amelie's Sapphires | The Court Jeweller

I don't like the tiara but the rest of the parure is stunning and regal. One of the most majestic I have seen.

Such a shame, they should have sold the large baroque pearl and kept the rest of the pieces if they were in need of money.

According to Marlene Koenig who runs the blog Royal Musings the main reason for selling the items was the enormous insurance costs. Also the difficulty to divide them between the many heirs of Infanta Alicia - she had three children, seventeen grandchildren and thirty-eight great-grandchildren.
I agree that it's a shame that the items had to be sold and I'm sure the family did so with a heavy heart, but they have no use for them really.

A diamond necklace was made in 1811 and was presented by Napoleon I to his wife Marie Louise. This was a gift to celebrate the birth of their son, Napoleon Francois.

Princess Allice, the owner of these sold jewels did give jewels to her 2 daughters when she was alive. (Ruby tiara).
Princess Anne de France, Don Carlos wife was never allowed to wear any of her jewels. I don't think they had a heavy heart.

A rare picture of Alix, Dowager Princess Napolon wearing a floral tiara with the family's diamond pendant necklace.
Is anything know about the tiara? I've only seen HIH in what looks like a convertible sapphire necklace in an old official portrait.
Also, any idea on the event? Looks like it might've been taken at the wedding ball for King Baudouin and Queen Fabiola, and Princess Alix's presence would be logical, given the family connection.

It seems that bridal tiara of Olympia, Princess Napolon was once belonging to her great-grandmother Princess Helene d'Orleans, Duchess of Aosta.

Thanks for the identification I was wondering if it was a historic piece or a loan.

What a pity it was sold off its design I'd imagine was a nod to Napoleons Coronation Crown.

On the left, Countess Marie Adelaide d'Andigne (mother in law of Duchess Sophie von Wrttemberg) wearing an interesting diamond and pearl tiara:

She is daughter of Vicomte Amaury de la Barre de Nanteuil and grand-daughter of Princess Monique Imperiali de Francavilla.

So, this tiara could be either Freanch or Italian heirloom.

Interesting picture, as we saw so few pics from the wedding gala. And it is rare to see French aristocrats wearing their jewels. So it is difficult to find out where the tiara comes from.

True, unfortunately.

Marie Adelaide is married to a Frenach Count, daughter of French Vicomte and grand-daughter of Italian Princess, who is connected to all Italian grand families, so this lovely little tiara could be either French or Italian heirloom.

It is also interesting that Marie Adelaide d'Andigne is 5x cousin once removed of Princess Michael of Kent. They are both descendants of Count Philipp von Grnne (1732-1797) and his wife Madeleine Christine von Holstein (1744-1811).
