The ROSBERY PEARLS belonged to Hannah, Countess of Rosbery nee de Rothschild. Her jewelry collection was admired throughout all the Royal Courts in Europe during the second half of the XIX Century. This pearl and diamond bracelet, brooch and tiara are one of the finest pieces of Victorian jewellery ever made. In a private collection for the last 140 years they will probably be acquired by an important museum.
