Wow! It's fascinating to see that jewelry box (it looks quite big). About the question of the jewels I posted, there was no info about the place they were located, but perhaps they're in Hungary... I even thought they belonged to some of Sissi's descendants

The beautiful ruby parure was lost. That is a recreated set. Even so would love to see it upclose.

Well, in this case I was reffering to her jewels used at her coronation as Queen of Hungary, but perhaps they're the original ones.

Those survive and used in Zita's coronation (She was Queen of Hungary too). The rubies set was once belonged to Queen Marie Antoinette before her marriage to King Louis XVI. They were brought back and Sisi wore them on the wedding aniversary. It consists of a tiara, necklace on a black velvet base and a bracelet.

But Zita's crown (which was a remake of Sisi's, wasn't it?), was lost in exile in Switzerland, due to some shady baron, I've read. Anybody who can elaborate?

I think it was the same. Yes it was lost. So were the rubies...

That case was really beautiful. I'd like to see it in person, it'd be nice to own something like that.

I don't think that they're rubies, they don't look red for me... but like gray or black. Honestly I don't know, the site didn't say

This was made with hungarian opals and found that belonged to the Crown Princess Staphanie

Isn't it the belt that she is wearing on this painting, it looks similar to me... ?
