From Royal Jewels of the World Blog, credit to RDavid regarding newly discovered old Portugese tiara:

Here is a link that leads you to some discoveries made about the jewellery collection of the Portuguese Royal family (at the end there is an English translation)

https://www.academia.edu/42831590/A_..._4000_diamonds

“Part of the investigation taking place within the scope of the opening of the Royal Treasury Museum of the National Palace of Ajuda, João Júlio Rumsey Teixeira presents his first conclusions about the observation and research of the fragments of dismantled jewels from the palace’s collection, which until today remained disconnected and physically separated.
The deduction that several of this fragments were once part of a large mid-19th century tiara was the starting point of a technic and historical analysis that, supported by unprecedented original documents, allowed to reconstruct the history of one of the most famous, albeit mysterious, Portuguese jewels of the 19th century.”

Its refreshing to discover that the Duchess of Braganza has a healthy jewel chest ,though tiara events for the Portuguese RF are very rare.

Came across this tweet stating that Queen Maria II's Sapphire tiara was sold for almost 2 million USD.

It was sold by the Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen family. RDavid has a post about the tiara here.

The Ajuda National Palace Museum tried to buy the tiara but the price went too high for them. I hope they are able to come to an agreement with the new owner so that it can be displayed in the museum.

I am sorry that the state of Portugal did not buy this jewel.

Its a shame the Portuguese were unable to acquire the tiara.

It was too expensive . I am afraid more minor Royals will sell their royal jewels now.
