The History









Crown of Stars.
Gold with diamonds. Donated by the Catholic world to Pope Pius X in 1904.

The crown is a valuable work of a high level goldsmith's art. It is composed of twelve stars made up of many diamonds set on pale gold leaf. The jewel was donated by the Catholic world to Pope Pius X on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the definition of the dogma of the Immaculate Conception by Pope Pius IX in 1854.
