fit for a queen | the jewellery auction

There is something mysterious and powerful about coloured gemstones. For centuries they have inspired beliefs in their magical powers and captivated the hearts of many. 

Associated with royalty, sapphire often feature in crowns, jewellery and sceptres of Kings and Queens across the world. St Edward’s sapphire features in the Imperial State Crown and is the oldest gemstone in the Royal Crown Jewels Collection. It is thought to have originally belonged to Edward the Confessor, dating to his coronation in 1042. When the stone came into Queen Victoria’s possession, she had it mounted at the centre of the cross on the top of her crown which is where it remains today.
