Ruby Diamond Wreath brooch Diadem Empress Josephine of France | Imperial Jewels History Royaltiaras Rubytiaras historictiaras napoleonic tiaras neoclassical movement, the laurel became a popular motif in head ornaments in the early nineteenth century. Like victorious warriors in Greek and Roman times, Napoleon chose it for his imperial crown as a symbol of his power, while Joséphine also adopted it to display her sovereign status, wearing a laurel-leaf tiara for the coronation. Nitot appropriated the classical symbol in turn, creating harmoniously symmetrical arrangements that were characteristic of the imperial jewels. The tiara was the centerpiece of the sumptuous ceremonial parures supplied by the jeweler, the crown that drew the eye, focused and raised people's gazes, and transfigured and deified the wearer. In this parure, depicted with precision by Regnault, the empress's tiara features two large laurel branches studded with diamonds that joined above the forehead, over a floral band set with splendid emeralds, a type of naturalistic composition typical of the Empire style

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:

The center stone of the tiara, weighing 12.04 cts, was reworked into a ring in platinum, see above.

For Eugenie Niarchos, two of the large quatrefoil emeralds were made into earrings – with a top of oval emeralds to hang in and out.

Furthermore, the large bracelet with five oval emeralds from the tiara, received a diamond frame in platinum and can be seen in the picture above and follow the link for more imperial history
