with her leggendary pearls.....maybe she was not as beautiful as Queens like Sissi, Maria of Rumania etc, but surely she was the image of regalness.

A tiara drawn by Musy, Queen Margherita gave it to her nephew Umberto II, who gave it to Maria JosŤ, on the wedding day (January 8th, 1930).

The CROWN JEWELS have been kept in a caveau of the Italian Bank since 1946 and nobody can see or admire them as it would be fair.

Another shame of the italian republic.

King UMBERTO II (GOD bless him) decided to gift italian people with the crown jewels. How generous!

This is why he did not take them in exile..

I guess it's not possible, because after the institutional referendum (2 july 1946) all the properties of the Crown (former Kings, former Queens and the male desendants) have been confiscated by the Goverment; I think the Royal jewels (Italians and Sardinians) were properties of the Crown and not Royal Family's properties.

In the 70s, after a contentious between the Italian Government and th Royal Family (the Victor Emanuel III's desendents), the Savoy Family won that some properties, like Racconigi, must be handed back to the Savoy sisters, but the King's quote must be confiscated by the Government.
The jewels, I think, have been ceded to the Government, with many others properties (the Royal Palace of Milan) in the first years of the XX century, so, the royal jewels became a State property. I don't know if all the jewels were ceded to the State.

I think the jewels in the deposit box was supposed to be given back to the family I heard. However Queen Margarita's celebrated peals was not among them.
