Annie Besant (1847–1933) wearing the 18th Degree Rosicrucian Jewel. The Jewel originally belonged to Count Alessandro di Caglostro but eventually came into the possession of a number of important Theosophists, including H.P. Blavatsky, H.S. Olcott, Mrs ver Planck, W.Q. Judge, and Rukmini Arundale. Mrs. Besant, the fourth owner of the Jewel, is shown here wearing it in a photograph taken in the year 1902. The photo appears courtesy of Mr. Joseph E. Ross of Ojai, California. The picture appeared on the cover of Theosophical History, Vol. III, No. 3 and is the subject of an article by Nell C. Taylor entitled "The Mysterious Life and Transitions of the Cagliostro Jewel." Ms Taylor and Mr. Ross wish to express their appreciation for the return of the Cagliostro Jewel to the Adyar Theosophical Society Museum and Archives on July 17, 1992.
