Where is Carole Lombard's 152 Carat Star Sapphire?

Hollywood gems came is all sizes. In our opinion, Lombard’s goose egg of a star was the top gem in the business. We can only speculate where it might be, but perhaps someone that reads our blog will tell us where it is now. Perhaps they have this fabulous star sapphire locked up somewhere in a bank vault. 

We have been researching this gem since the spring of 2014. Hours have been spent pouring over newspaper articles about this star sapphire. Here are a few of our favorite studio shots of Lombard wearing her 152 carat star sapphire and diamond brooch.

Recently there was a sale on Christies - this could be a new development towards locating information about the designer.

The following images were discovered and collected from the world of Pinterest.
