The superb jewels of H.S.H. Gabriela Princess zu Leiningen feature some of the finest gemstones collectors could dream of. The highlight is the 36 carat D color Pohl diamond, illustrated left. Mined in 1934 as a 287 carat rough stone, it was the first major diamond to be polished in America and was sold in 1943 to Bernice Chrysler Garbisch of the Chrysler Family. In 1998 it was acquired for the Princess at Cartier. This famous diamond is offered for an estimate of US$3,800,000-5,500,000.

MAGNIFICENT JEWELS BY CARTIER

More jewels by Cartier include a sensational emerald and diamond necklace suspending a richly coloured Colombian emerald of almost 40 carats, illustrated right (US$2,500,000-3,500,000). Princess Gabriela was photographed on many occasions wearing the necklace and the matching earrings, one of them being at the official dinner preceding the wedding of Prince Felipe of Spain and Letizia Ortiz in Madrid, in 2004.

Another magnificent parure, also by Cartier, is set with rare Burmese sapphires. The V-shaped necklace suspends a 55 carat cushion-shaped sapphire (US$2,000,000-3,000,000) and is complemented by a pair of ear pendants, with diamond-set star tops and pear-shaped sapphire pendants, each weighing approximately 25 carats (US$600,000-800,000).

THE CULTURED PEARL PARURE

This very elegant cultured pearl and diamond fringe necklace, illustrated left, belonged to H.H. Begum Om Habibeh Aga Khan (1906-2000), the wife of H.H. Sultan Mohammed Shah, Aga Khan III. When it entered the collection of Princess Gabriela, a matching pair of ear pendants and a bangle were commissioned to Van Cleef & Arpels in order to wear them as a complete parure (US$200,000-300,000).

H.S.H. GABRIELA PRINCESS ZU LEININGEN

Born to an entrepreneurial and philanthropic German family, Princess Gabriela, a trained lawyer, has been involved in educational, health and cultural development programs throughout her life.
