Large Sapphire 478ct Necklace Queen Marie of Romania|Art Deco Diamond Sautoir Cartier |Romanian Queen|Royal Jewel History

 

 

The cushion-shaped sapphire weighing 478.68 carats held by diamond floral motifs at three points, diamond frame to the reverse and suspension hoop, with French assay mark for platinum With maker's mark HP flanking an ace of spades for the French workshop of Henri Picq, no. 5026 to the suspension hoop.

Before the auction in 2003 it was testet from the SSEF Swiss Gemmological Institute stating that the sapphire is of Sri Lankan origin, no indications of thermal enhancement.

On top of the picture we see a sketch from the Boucheron Archive, with the note about the sapphire.

 

The first reference made by Cartier to this Royal 478 carat sapphire was in 1913 when the gemstone was added to a collection of seven other sapphires to form a magnificent sautoir.

Later that year, the diamond necklace was altered to exclude the smaller sapphires in order to focus on the large sapphire drop attached to a pendant ring of calibré-cut sapphires.

The design for the sumptuous jewel changed again in 1919 and became Cartier's most valuable item exhibited in the Hotel Maria Cristina at their Autumn Show in San Sebastian. Being the talk of the town, the Queen of Spain, Victoria Eugenia, Queen Mother Maria Cristina and the Princess of Bourbon arrived to admire the display in all its splendour.

Two years after the Spanish exhibition, the sapphire drop suspended on the diamond necklace, was purchased by King Ferdinand of Romania. His beautiful consort Queen Marie (1875-1938), was at the time in her mid forties and famous as an ambassador for Romania's cultural interests (Queen Marie was a grand daughter of both Queen Victoria of Great Britain and Czar Alexander II of Russia).

At the time of the purchase of the sapphire, she also acquired a pearl tiara from Cartier, which she wore in the 'Byzantine' style.

The Coronation of King Ferdinand took place on 15 October 1922 and as part of her jewels, Queen Marie wore her splendid necklace perfectly complementing the extraordinary sapphire tiara she had bought from Grand Duchess Vladimir when she fled from Russia. These were also the two jewels that the Queen wore for her portrait by Philip de Laszlo in 1924.

The sapphire was sold, possibly in 1947 when King Michael (grandson of Queen Marie) left Romania and was acquired by Harry Winston. The last pictures of the diamond necklace without the sapphire were taken at the wedding of exiled King Michael of Romania to Princess Anne of Bourbon-Parma in 1948.
It was subsequently dismantled. Of the worlds most famous and historic cut sapphires, the gem offered for sale on 19th November is by far the largest, weighing 478 carats.

Another, the 547 carat polished sapphire, curiously named 'Peter the Great's Nose' which was originally given by Peter I to Augustus the Strong in 1698, is displayed in the Green Vault in Dresden, Germany.

Queen Marie of Romania's sapphire is the largest sapphire ever presented at auction and with its genuine beauty and fascinating history becomes what can indisputably be termed a unique jewel.

After the death of Queen Marie of Romania, in 1937, she left the sautoir and the magnificent large sapphire of 478ct to Crown Prince Michael of Romania, who became king in 1940, before being exiled by the communists seven years later.

 

While the 478 carats sapphire was sold by Harry Winston, in the 60's to a greek collector who presented it to queen Frederika of Greece.


The sapphire pendant now belongs to the Museum of Qatar.
