Astonishingly beautiful, sumptuous and
Known for her extensive jewelry collection, this granddaughter of Queen Victoria of the Britain born at Balmoral Castle, in Scotland in 1887, was considered a great beauty of her time and was widely known to British public and her family as Ena. When she passed away in 1969, she left behind an impressive collection of jewels.
Notably, this stunning piece of Royal jewelry was singled out amongst the extraordinary jewels of the 19th and 20th Centuries and illustrated in a noted book named Celebrating Jewellery.
Besides Queen Eugenia’s Cartier bracelet, the sale also features some of the other significant selection of Royal jewels, including a pair of ruby and diamond pendant earrings suspending sensational, perfectly matched Burmese rubies of 11 carats each (pictured above). Expected to garner a price of $2,500,000, these splendid earrings dating back to 1921, were formerly in the collection of HSH Princess Max Egon zu Hohenlohe-Langenburg.
However, we have also earlier seen the sale offering of the finest and most expensive Royal jewellery, including the vintage Royal jewels of Romanian King Carol II, and the Mughal Mirror diamond necklace from India's royal jewel collections which was expected to sell for $20 million, to name a few.
Another noted auctioneer Christie's is also offering the famed 76-carat Golconda diamond 'Archduke Joseph Diamond’, and is expected to sell for over $15 million.
