Estimated value: CHF 765,000 - 1,340,000 . Magnificent jewelry and noble jewelry.

Pearls and beauties complement each other, and the gentle beauty of pearls gives famous women a special aura that complements their fame and beauty. The heritage history of unmounted pearls is difficult to trace, so the natural pearl necklace offered for sale this time is round and smooth, with seven detachable drop-shaped pearls hanging from it. It comes with detailed records of royal provenance, making it even more rare.

It is clearly visible from the portrait painted by the painter Joseph Carl Stiller in 1820 for Augusta Amelia (1788-1856), the former Princess of Bavaria and Duchess of Rochtenburg. The necklace was worn by descendants of this royal family.

Due to the unpredictability of the sea, rough waves in storms and various other factors, the work of pearl divers is extremely difficult and dangerous. Therefore, flawless pearls are so rare that pearls have been regarded as a symbol of status and wealth for the past two thousand years. The alluring charm of pearls lies in the unique luster reflected and diffracted by its transparent layer. Wearing it on Josephina's body makes her fair and delicate skin even more visible. Different from other transparent gemstones, the iridescence emitted by pearls not only gradually became inseparable from Josephina's appearance and temperament, but its magnificent brilliance added to Josephina's queenly style. Whether paired with a daytime outfit or a day and night gown, the pearl necklace around Josefina's neck gives her the confidence to fulfill her duties and obligations to Sweden and its people. Josephina was 69 years old and was deeply loved during her lifetime. Her death was deeply regretted by the people. Since then, Josefina's pearl necklace has been passed down to her descendants from generation to generation. Until this century, the necklace is still the center of attention and topic at royal weddings and other formal occasions.
