Diamant Diadem der Grossherzogin Hilda von Baden | Diamond Tiara of Grandduchess of Baden

Das wertvolle Diadem gehörte der letzten amtierenden Großherzogin Hilda von Baden, geborene von Nassau (1864 - 1952), der Frau des Großherzogs Friedrich II. von Baden (1857-1928), der bis zur Abschaffung der Monarchie im Jahr 1918 im Karlsruher Schloss residierte.
Stilistisch weist die Goldschmiedearbeit laut dem Museum Elemente des Klassizismus auf. Gold und Platin bilden einen Rahmen mit zwei Stegen, in den Girlanden und gegenläufige Wellenlinien eingepasst sind. Diese sind  „à jour“ (nur am Rand, ohne Bodenplatte) gefassten Brillanten besetzt. Die Mitte wird von einer Raute mit einem Brillanten betont.
Die fein ziselierte Fassung ist mit 457 Altschliff-Brillanten und 225 Diamanten mit einem Totalgewicht von ca. 75 Karat besetzt. Die größten elf Steine wiegen zusätzlich ca. 15 Karat, davon der mittlere ca. 5 Karat. mehr zu der Historie Diadem>>

Es ist nicht bekannt, zu welchem Anlass das Diadem für die Großherzogin Hilda von Baden angefertigt wurde. Möglicherweise wurde es zum Regierungsantritt Friedrichs II. – des letzten badischen Großherzogs – im Jahr 1907 in Auftrag gegeben. Die aus Hessen stammende Großherzogin Hilda starb 1952 im südbadischen Badenweiler. Der jetztige Wert wird auf 1,2 Millionen € geschätzt.

collection of the French Crown Jewels.

Nearly all the jewels were sold during an auction the French government conducted in 1887, and only a few of them survive in original condition. Several of the larger items were broken up before the auction . Others have been dismantled in the years since, and a number of the diamonds have been recut.

Several of the jewels that survived are matching pieces set with rubies and diamonds, originally part of a sumptuous parure  suite that Napoleon bought in 1810. The histories of these pieces are as rich as the rubies .
