I see sapphires in the painting, not emeralds. Or am I a bit colourblind? |
: Searching in my old files, I came across some
: portuguese royal jewels and found a better
: picture of Queen Maria II of Portugal
: with her emerald tiara, with matching brooch
: and bracelet. It then appears more clearly
: that the tiara has at least three
: substantial emeralds.
: Through her daughter Infante Antonia the
: tiara ended up to the
: Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen princely House and
: was seen on Pcess Birgitta
: of Sweden at the 1967 danish royal wedding :
: I would like to add another royal emerald
: jewel from Queens of Portugal :
: a huge bow brooch which belonged to Queen
: Marie Anne and is showed off in one Lisboa
: 's Palace.
: Do you know more about it ?
