It was the annual celebration of Midsommar in Stockholm. A couple friends and I had planned to stay at a hotel farther out in the islands.

Leuchtenberg sapphire tiara, necklace and earrings

This diamond and sapphire parure (set) was a wedding gift from French emperor Napoleon Bonaparte to his adopted son’s wife, Princess Augusta Amalia of Bavaria. The Duchess of Leuchtenberg (as she was known after her marriage) gave the set to her daughter Josephine when she married the future King Oscar I of Sweden in 1823. The parure is now in the family foundation in Sweden and has been worn mostly by queens and those acting as first ladies of the country.
