Zitas von Bourbon Parma's father replied to her question about the nationality of the family with: We are French princes who ruled in Italy.
On June 13, 1911, the engagement of the 19-year-old princess to the 24-year-old archduke took place in the fatherly Villa delle Pianore near Lucca, in which Zita was born Number 2 in the succession to the throne after Franz Ferdinand of Austria-Este had moved up.
On October 21, 1911, a wedding was celebrated in Schloss Schwarzau am Steinfeld. The highest-ranking guests were Emperor Franz Joseph I, who brought a toast to the couple.
The emperor had the bride make a diamond diadem for the court jeweler Köchert for 90,000 crowns.
The jewel has already been conveyed to the high bride; a courier of the Chamber of Commerce was entrusted with the task of moving the diadem into
Bring the castle to Schwarzau-am Steinfeld, where it was taken over by the ducal chamberlain Count Karl d'Avernas.
The valuable bridal jewelry is adorned with more than a thousand diamonds.
The tiara has a modernized baroque style in the form of a crown and consists of a bandeau and five parts, in the center of which there is a diamond frame, which is surrounded by a leaf ornament.
The individual parts each have a brilliant solitaire at the top; the stone in the middle is the largest and weighs four carats, while the other solitaires drop symmetrically to the sides.
The five parts above the bandeau can be unscrewed from the carcass to which they are attached and used as a necklace.
But each piece also individually forms a piece of jewelry for itself. So the bandeau as hair ornament and the middle piece as
Brooch and pendant can be worn. The individual tops can be screwed into brochure frames and three of them can also be combined to form a broad hair comb.
The tiara is set entirely in platinum and the diamonds, which are of course of the very first quality, have all been processed a jour.
The artistically executed piece of jewelry rests in a tasteful, simple cassette made of brown ekras leather, which is lined with blue velvet.
Princess Zita wore the necklace, which she had received from Archduke Karl Franz Josef as a bridal gift; pearls and the emperor's tiara glittered in the hair, see above in the picture.
It is a dazzling abundance of diamonds and gemstones, of art and commodities, the love and awe of the lovely prince bride offered the bridal gifts:
In the wonderful tiara that Se. Majesty the Emperor donated, flickering and glittering countless diamonds in all sizes.A second cassette contains all the utensils necessary to assemble the individual pieces, because the diadem can be dismantled in all its parts and can be worn in a wide variety of ways.
King Friedrich August von S a ch s e n also donated a magnificent diamond diadem. The stones are assembled here in the form of a tortoiseshell combs, each of which can be used individually while strung together to form the tiara.
The gold frame that surrounds the picture donated to the Pope by Sr. Holiness is a sight worth seeing. Towered over by the papal crown, it bears the inscription: "Instavrare omnia in Christo", the bourbon coat of arms with the duke strone below as a counterpart, and on both sides in blue enamel the reason: October 21, 1911. The four corners show apostles' heads made of embossed silver Twelve large gemstones are emblazoned in the sidebars, andalso sent a rosary made of Venetian gold filigree.
The necklace, the Archduke Karl Franz Josef presented his graceful bride, consists of twenty-two rows of pearls and has a wide brilliant clasp, see above.

Among them were pink silk sachets with white tips that came from the maids and dressmakers of the castle. And here was a moving scene, with the Duchess specifically showed me this work; a testament to the sublime sense and noble heart of the high woman, who appreciated this humble homage according to her inner values.
