The medieval Crown of Margaret of York made circa 1300AD. ? I had thought Margaret of York was Henry the VIII's older sister, which make it worn by her sometime in the 1400s, but either I'm mistaken or the crown was an heirloom. Got to hit the books!
The crown of Princess Margaret of York - sister of Edward IV and wife of Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy. Made in c. 1461 this is one of only two English crowns from the medieval period that survive intact.

DIAMOND "Orlov". According to one version, it is one of the big pieces of stone “Great Mogul”, originally weighed 400 carats after cutting – 189 carats. As the story goes, the diamond has long been the third eye (located between the eyebrows), of the statue of Brahma temple in Seringapatam. Traces of the famous diamond to the time lost, until it got to the Armenian merchant Grigory Safras. In 1767, he put the diamond in the Bank of Amsterdam, and five years later sold the stone for 125 000 to th
Like the Black Orlov, the Orlov Diamond, which has a faint bluish-green tinge, is rumored to have once served as the eye of a Hindu god statue. The rose-cut diamond has a dome shape that resembles an egg that's been cut in half. At 189.62 carats, the Orlov is one of the largest found diamonds in the world. Legend has it that during the 18th century, a French solider stole it from a Hindu temple in Tamil Nadu, India. The Orlov (sometimes spelled Orloff), was then sold and resold until it ended up in Amsterdam, where it was bought by Grigory Grigoryevich Orlov, a Russian count. Orlov had been having an affair with Catherine II while she was married to Peter III of Russia. Peter III was ultimately dethroned, Catherine subsequently became Catherine the Great of Russia and had an illegitimate child with Count Orlov. However, she ultimately left the count for a Russian prince, and the heartbroken Orlov gave her the giant diamond in an attempt to win back her affections. Orlov's grand romantic gesture was unsuccessful, but Catherine named the diamond after him and had it set in her royal scepter. Currently, the Orlov is part of the Kremlin Diamond Fund, an exhibit in Moscowshowcasing Russia's crown jewels.
The Orlov is a large diamond that is part of the collection of the Diamond Fund of the Moscow Kremlin. Its origin – described as having the shape and proportions of half a chicken's egg – can be traced back to the 18th century Sri Ranganathaswamy Hindu temple, in Srirangam, Tamil Nadu, India where it once served as the eye of the presiding deity.

"Portrait of Jane Seymour", 1537, by Hans Holbein the Younger (Flemish, 1497/98-1543). Jane Seymour (c. 1508-1537) was Queen of England as the third wife of King Henry VIII, succeeding Anne Boleyn as queen consort following the latter's execution in May 1536. She died of postnatal complications less than two weeks after the birth of her only child, a son who reigned as Edward VI. She was the only one of Henry's wives to receive a queen's funeral, and his only consort to be buried beside him.

"Queen Elizabeth on her Coronation Day June 2, 1953. Her Majesty is wearing the purple Coronation Robe trimmed with ermine, gold Garter Collar and dress of white satin with coloured beaded embroidery of the flower emblems of Great Britain and the Dominions, among them the English Tudor rose, Scottish thistle, Irish shamrock, Welsh leek, Canadian maple leaf, Australian wattle and Indian lotus flower."
"The Queen inherited the diadem in 1952 on the death of her father. Because the Queen wears the diadem to and from the State Opening of Parliament each year, and is pictured with it on all United Kingdom postage stamps, the diadem is seen by more millions of people than any other item of royal jewellery."

This exquisitely crafted early 19th century emerald and diamond tiara was commissioned by Louis-Antoine, the duc d'Angouleme (1775-1844) in 1819, for his wife the Duchesse d'Angouleme Marie-Therese (1778-1851), the eldest daughter of Emperor Louis XVI and his Queen Consort Marie Antoinette, who were executed by guillotine in 1793 during the upheavals of the French Revolution

MARIE-THERESE, DUCHESSE d'ANGOULEME EMERALD AND DIAMOND TIARA This exquisitely crafted early 19th century emerald and diamond tiara was commissioned by Louis-Antoine, the duc d'Angouleme (1775-1844) in 1819, for his wife the Duchesse d'Angouleme Marie-Therese (1778-1851). The tiara which was designed and executed by the French Royal Jewelers Evrard and Frederic Bapst in 1819, was a masterpiece of the French jewelry craftsmanship of the early 19th century. The design of the tiara was a symmetrical design of scrolling foliage, mounted with over a thousand diamonds set in silver, and 40 emeralds set in gold. The silver and gold lines of the settings are clearly visible in the photograph of the tiara. The diamond-studded semi-circular band of the tiara, is curved upwards towards the center, in order to fit into the contour of the wearer's head. The scrolling foliage of the tiara arises from the curved band, and the design is perfectly symmetrical with respect to the median line. Two emeralds are placed along the median line of the tiara, a lower small square-shaped emerald touching the lower curved band, with its opposite vertices along the median line, and an upper larger cushion-shaped emerald as the centerpiece of the tiara, surrounded by 18 brilliant-cut diamonds. Twelve other larger emeralds are also placed in symmetrical positions, six on each side of the median line of the tiara. Being executed with materials provided by the state treasury, such as gold, silver, diamonds and emeralds, the finished tiara though used by the Duchesse d'Angouleme, still remained the property of the French State. Marie-Therese used the tiara until the year 1830, when she decided to go into exile in Britain. Before her departure to Britain she returned the emerald and diamond tiara to the French state treasury. The celebrated tiara remained in the French state treasury until 1848, when there was a proposal to dispose of all the crown jewels of France, in the immediate aftermath of the revolution of 1848. However the proposal, never materialized and the crown jewels including the Marie-Therese emerald and diamond tiara remained in the safe custody of the treasury. By 1887, the crown jewels of France represented a powerful symbol of the deposed monarchy of France; thus, the sale went ahead despite all the well-founded criticisms. The auction that was held in May 1887, attracted international attention, and several leading jewelry houses in the world, such as Tiffany's, Van Cleef & Arpels and the Parisian jewelers Frederic Boucheron and Paul Bapst, took part in the auctions. The jewels were divided into 69 lots, and Tiffany's of New York, successfully bid for 24 of these lots which they purchased for $480,000, a sum that was greater than the combined purchases of the next nine largest buyers. The total proceeds realized from the sale of the crown jewels was said to be 6 million francs. The "Marie-Therese Emerald and Diamond Tiara" was also sold at this auction, but the jeweler who purchased it is not known. In all probability the jeweler who purchased the celebrated tiara was a British national, as it surfaced in Britain, and was once owned by Wartski's jewelry firm, situated in Grafton Street, Mayfair, London. According to Geoffrey Munn, the Managing Director of Wartski, who also wrote his famous work "Tiaras, a History of Splendor" the "Marie-Therese Emerald and Diamond Tiara" was in the safe of the Wartski's jewelry firm, at the time he joined the firm more than 30 years ago. No one in the firm was aware of the historical credentials of the celebrated tiara. It was just known as an "Emerald and Diamond Tiara" and contained 1,021 diamonds and 44 emeralds. The owner of the "Marie-Therese Emerald and Diamond Tiara" decided to dispose of his valuable possession in the year 2002, and the value of the tiara was placed at £700,000. However on a recommendation made by the Reviewing Committee on the Export of Works of Art, the Minister of State for the Arts, Tessa Blackstone placed a temporary bar on the export of the tiara, to provide a chance to interested parties to raise the required money, to keep the tiara in the United Kingdom, as the committee was convinced of the outstanding aesthetic importance and the technical skills evident in the tiara, which still retains its original form. The bar was said to last until April 15, 2002, and was to be extended by another 3 months if serious attempts were made to raise such funds. The bar on the export of the tiara expired on April 15, without any attempt being made to raise funds for the purchase of the tiara. The owner of the tiara was thus free to do whatever he wanted with his valuable possession. The Victoria Albert Museum which displayed the tiara for twenty years, thus lost an opportunity to hold on to one of its choicest exhibits for the want of a benefactor to purchase the valuable piece of jewelry for them. The loss of the Victoria Albert Museum, became the gain of the Louvre Museum in France. The owner of the celebrated tiara successfully negotiated a deal with the Louvre Museum, that brought him the returns he expected. Thus the emerald and diamond tiara of the Duchess d'Angouleme, Marie Therese Charlotte, the only child of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette to survive the French revolution, finally became the property of the Louvre Museum, where it is displayed today.
