An Edwardian diamond and sapphire pendant/brooch. The pendant centring a cabochon sapphire suspended from a seed pearl and diamond cluster double chain with a marquise diamond clasp.In the Great London Exhibition of 1862, a sapphire weighing 260.37 carats was purchased by Russian Emperor Alexander II and presented to his wife Empress Maria Alexandrovna. This rare treasure was described as “unique … for its combination of size, color, clarity and extraordinary cut.” Today, this magnificent piece of history is in the Russian Diamond Fund, where it is proudly shown in Moscow, Russia From Her Majesty’s Jewel Vault: Prince Albert’s Sapphire Brooch Art Deco Diamond, Emerald, Sapphire Brooch or Pendant Early 20th century Sapphire Brooch: ca. 1860, Russian, gold, silver, diamonds, Ceylon sapphire (260.37 carats). “This sapphire was purchased by Alexander II at the London Great Exhibition of 1862 and presented it to his wife, Maria Alexandrovna.” [I wonder if he gave it to the Empress when she was his fiancée, Alix of Hesse and by Rhine, as they didn’t marry until 1864.] Lluís Masriera Rosés – An Art Nouveau gold, plique-à-jour enamel, diamond, ruby and sapphire brooch, Barcelona, circa 1901. #GoldJewelleryArtNouveau
