The Leuchtenberg Sapphire Tiara

The Leuchtenberg Sapphire Tiara

Composed of 11 sapphires framed in diamonds on a diamond base of honeysuckle and leaf motifs, the Leuchtenberg Sapphire Tiara was probably made by the Parisian jeweler Marie-Etienne Nitot. Originally, pearls were included as an alternative to the sapphires; the pearls are no longer with the tiara, but supposedly the capability is still there. It’s a flexible tiara made in 11 different sections, allowing the user to adjust the circumference at will. It folds out to store flat in its box, a feature that Queen Silvia has noted makes it very handy to travel with.

The sapphires are thought to have been a wedding gift from Napoléon to Princess Augusta of Bavaria, Duchess of Leuchtenberg, when she married Eugène de Beauharnais (Empress Joséphine’s son). It makes the journey to Sweden with Augusta’s daughter, Josephine, who married Oscar I of Sweden and Norway. It is now in the family foundation in Sweden, and has been worn mostly by queens and/or those acting as first ladies of the country.

Magnificent Unheated 11.49ct Burma Royal Blue Sapphire GRS

Unquestionably one of the most gorgeous and stunning Unheated Blue Sapphire from Mogok in Burma you will find anywhere online in the world at the moment – a sensational gem weighing an absolutely impressive 11.49ct. The Blue Sapphire is simply gorgeous – a deeply saturated almost pure hue of blue akin to the famed ‘Royal ‘ blue of yore and which, at its best, like this example, shows extreme fire and vibrancy. The stone is almost but not eye clean – we would call it eye clean to all but the exceptionally eagle eyed – actually the only inclusion is right in one corner- astonishingly good clarity for a Burmese sapphire. Such extremely good clarity in such an immense blue sapphire is absolutely rare and absolutely to be collected. Lustre and brilliancy are excellent – the stone is positively ‘alive’ and is extremely vibrant and lively despite the window in the gem. The ring will come complete with GRS certification confirming no heat, the origin and Royal Blue.

Art Deco Unheated 1.95ct Burma Blue Sapphire and Diamond Platinum Ring GIA Certified

Art Deco Unheated 1.95ct Burma Blue Sapphireand Diamond Platinum Ring GIA Certified

A Simply stunning Art Deco ring c.1935 featuring a wonderful Unheated 1.95ct Burma Blue Sapphire from the famed gem mines of Mogok in Burma (Myanmar). The colour of this magnificent gemstone is an almost pure hue of blue, absolutely gorgeous! Bear in mind that the light in Chicago, as an example, may not be so bright this time of year! Clarity is extremely good for the gem genre and this is a bright and vibrant stone, as evidenced in the pics. The gem is not quite eye clean but overall clarity is *excellent* for the gem genre. Note however that we are using a macro lens and this is barely visible with the naked eye. Cutting is good and the stone has a decent face for its weight, without major windowing. The cut is slightly asymmetrical. Lustre and brilliancy are both wonderful, and this is an extremely vibrant gem indeed. The diamonds total 0.30ct and are clean and white. The metal is 10% iridium 90% platinum, indistinctly stamped in the shank, and diagnostic of the jewel’s age. The ring has numerous tiny scratches commensurate with its age and unpolished state. Size 6.75. The stone comes complete with a certificate from GIA as attached, evidencing colour blue, origin Myanmar, no treatment.
