Be still my heart!!!
Apologies if we've already seen this one in the thread but when I click on the article this morning my coffee cup stopped halfway to my lips and I had to take a moment to recover!
Here is the text of the article (link at the the bottom). I think we should all pool our money and buy this!
A dazzling tiara worn at two British coronations and the Star of Egypt diamond purportedly once belonging to King Farouk are among the historic jewellery items being auctioned Wednesday by Christie's in Geneva.
The glittering pieces are going under the hammer in the auction house's Magnificent Jewels sale in the Swiss city.
The sale also features the largest private collection of JAR jewellery ever to come to auction, spanning 40 years of the work of Paris-based creator Joel Arthur Rosenthal.
Less than a fortnight after the coronation of Britain's King Charles III comes the sale of the Bessborough Diamond Tiara, which was worn at the coronations of his grandfather King George VI in 1937 and mother Queen Elizabeth II in 1953.
Vere Ponsonby, the ninth earl of Bessborough, commissioned the Parisian jeweller Chaumet to craft a tiara for his wife to mark his appointment as Canada's governor-general in 1931.
The Art Deco tiara, made with platinum and weighing 136.5 grams, has an intricate floral design.
"This is as iconic as it gets in terms of the style. The workmanship is unbelievable," said Max Fawcett, head of the jewellery department at Christie's in Geneva.
"This is quite crown-like, which is fitting for this year as it has been through two coronations," he told AFP.
"It's a piece of art and a piece of history."
It is expected to fetch between 800,000 and 1.5 million Swiss francs ($890,000-$1.67 million).

Lovely Art Deco clips on Marie and nice coral drops on Mary!
Do we have another picture of Marie's white enamel bangle? It seems to have some royal monograms on it.
