The ten-rayed stars made of diamond are in the possession of the Archduchess Louise of Tuscany, before her marriage. Probably it was also left to her from her halfsister Maria Antonietta, later Abbess of Hratschin Prague, when she died in 1883. Above her halfsister Archduchess Maria Antonietta, is pictured with the diamond stars and wearing gala for the court.
Louisa is pictured in her 18th, with seven of the stars as tiara, pinned as hairjewels, as well as, wearing one of the diamond stars as brooch on the collar.
Many jewels incorporated stars in their design because the scintillation of diamonds seems to evoke the light of the night sky. It was a style popular throughout Europe in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and was revived by Coco Chanel in Paris in the early 1930s.
Ihe stars a probably left to her children, but nothing is known, because she sold some of her jewels in later days.
