La Pelegrina Pearl

As well as the famed Krupp diamond and the 69-carat Taylor-Burton diamond — a stone so awesome that it was almost a celebrity in its own right — her vault included the Grand Duchess Vladimir Suite, the La Pelegrina Pearl and rare artefacts from houses including Boucheron, Bulgari, Cartier, Chopard, Garrard, Van Cleef & Arpels, Ruser, Tiffany, Schlumberger and more.
