The Crown of our Lady of Fatima

On October 13, 1942, as a result of a public subscription, the women of Portugal offered the jewels that were to be used in the production of the crown of gold that adorns the statue of Our Lady of Fatima. It weighs 1200 grams and contains 2650 precious stones and 313 pearls.
It is considered by many to be the most important jewel made in Portugal and in 1982 it became even more precious after the bullet extracted from the body of John Paul II, victim of an attack in St. Peter's Square in Rome on the 13
th of May 1981, was added. Curiously, the projectile had precisely the same diameter of the washer that joins the stems of the diadem, where the bullet was placed almost half a century later.
