Purportedly once owned by Princess Irena Obolensky, it was last purchased at Christie's 2005 Important Jewellery Auction.

The House of Obolensky was a princely Russian family, with a similar status as Duke or Duchess. The aristocrats mostly fled their homeland during the Russian Revolution in 1917.
