Sapphire and Diamond Crown Queen Maria da Gloria II Portugal Royal Jewels History |Reinha Portugal

A remarkable diamond and sapphire crown that belonged to Queen Maria II of Portugal  r. 1826-28 and 1834-1853 Composed of nine numbered and detachable elements that can be worn as brooches, it is set with 5 blue sapphires with an estimated total weight 32-35 ct, the largest of which measuring 19.15x15.60x7.65 mm with a report stating Burmese origin, no heat. The crown is also set with a massive amount of old cut diamonds, with a total estimated weight of 90-95 carats. In a 1846 portrait of the queen at Palácio Nacional da Ajuda, Lisboa, the monarch is seen wearing the crown as well as a sapphire brooch and sapphire bracelet. One may speculate if those were matching with the tiara.sapphire #crownjewels #casadebragança #jewelry #sapphiretiara #tiara #diadem #diadema #crown #royalcrown #sapphirejewelry #jewelry #jewellery #royaljewels #royaljewellery #royals #beauharnais #sapphires #safira #queen #joyauxdelacouronne #joyasdelacorona #zaffiro #diamonds #diamondjewelry #jewelryhistorian #jewelleryhistorian #historyofjewelry #arthistory #portugalgema

PROVENANCE OF THE IMPERIAL SAPPHIRE PARURE

A cord in writing, found between the boxes of jewels, stated that these sapphire jewels were given to Grand Duchess Stephanie of Baden, by her cousin Hortense de Beauharnais, Queen of Holland.

Such an origin is very likely. In many paintings Queen Hortense of Holland, and her mother Empress Josephine, can be seen wearing precious belts. Furthermore, Hortense’s financial papers, which are kept in the Napoléon archive in Paris, give evidence of her fortune between 1817 and 1837, the year she passed away. They show that she left Paris in 1816 with little money, but a lot of jewellery.

After Grand Duchess Stephanie’s of Baden death in 1860 the sapphire parure described as

‘necklace, pendant, earrings, seven pins and a belt’

was inherited by Stephanie’s second daughter, Josephine, Princess of Hohenzollern Sigmaringen.

See at the coronation picture, the sisters of Napoleon Caroline, Pauline, Elise and Hortense are in court gown with „jeweled belts“ and „bandeau head ornaments“ also stetted with large pins of precious centers, like the brooches and pins.

Under Napoléon’s court, belts decorated with precious stones were part of any jewellery parure, as fashion dictated that the waist was very high on dresses and court ladies needed a belt which was placed just under the décolleté. More about the history:

Auguste Viktoria Friederike Luise Feodora Jenny of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Augustenburg was the wife of Emperor Wilhelm II and as such from 1888 to 1918 German Empress and Queen of Prussia.

The empress often wore this large oval diamond brooch and Devante de Corsage and was shown in different pictures. The large faceted oval sapphire is framed by 20 evenly sized diamonds and two larger diamonds on the short lengths. A large, even pearl hangs movable on the brooch with an eyelet and three diamonds. There are flourishes made of diamonds on both sides.
