|Queen Josephine's Pearl and Ruby Brooch|
King Oscar presented this brooch to his wife in 1830s. It was a symbolic present since the five pearls in the brooch represented the couple's five children - Carl (future Carl XV), Gustaf, Oscar (future Oscar II), Eugenie, and August.

I think it's a lovely piece, one of those brooches that go with pretty much every outfit. The Swedish royals have much more spectacular jewels but I am glad they aren't neglecting this little brooch.
