I've been recently visiting München, and its Residenz palace. I was surprised by such amount of beautifuk jewels displayed there, specially the crown ones, and the queen´s of Bavaria ones as well. The ruby and diamond parure of Queen Maria Theresia, and the pearl and diamond one, belonging to the estate of Queen Amalia of Greece, are very spectacular. Also there is a bodice from the XVIII, made for a bavarian electress.
This is the golden fleece jewels where the Wittelsbach blue diamond was placed. I think it was auctioned some years ago. Now there is a blue cristal stone, the pink diamond below is real.
