Princess’ Jewelry Up For Auction too

If it isn’t enough that Shirley Temple’s blue sapphire ring, the Queen of Albania’s Coronation tiara and jewels owned by the Duchess of Windsor are all up for bids this month, in May 2016 Christie’s Geneva will feature some of the amazing baubles from Gabriele, Princess zu Leiningen.

Gabrielle was previously married to Prince Karl-Emich zu Leiningen and later to his Highness Prince Karim Aga Khan IV, 49th Imam of the Ismaili, so that flawless, D color diamond ring isn’t surprising.

Your Blog Hostess is not sure why she still retains the title of Princess zu Liningen as her marriage was dissolved in 1998, but it sure works as a selling point for Christie’s.

    Do you suppose we have fairy godmothers because we’re royal-jewelry orphans?

    Don’t think the divorce proceedings have concluded yet with her second husband, so she’s probably in need of funds.

it's not just a love-affair with my own voice
