Maharani of Baroda, wearing her Sapphire Necklace with Diamonds in platinum, of eleven rectagular sapphires of 200ct, suspending from the collier, made by VanCleef and Arpels, it was valued about €1 130 000.
Sita Devi was the daughter of the Maharaja of Pithapuram - Sri Raja Rao Venkata Kumara Mahipati Surya Rau Bahadur Garu and his wife Sri Rani Chinnamamba Devi of Kapileswarapuram, Nuzvid Zamindari. Sita Devi first married M. R. Apparao Bahadur, Zamindar of Vuyyuru.
By him she had one child, a son Rajah M. Viduth Kumar Apparao.
She was very social and was also a very close friend of Princess Niloufer the daughter-in-law of the 7th Nizam of Hyderabad.
She met her second husband, Pratap Singh Gaekwar of Baroda, at the Madras horse races in 1943.
The Gaekwad was, at that time, considered the eighth richest man in the world. It was also reported he was the second richest Indian prince. The Gaekwad was mesmerised by Sita Devi. The lovers consulted with his legal team. The lawyers recommended that the Hindu Sita Devi convert to Mohammedanism.
That would dissolve her marriage to the Zamindar under Indian law. She embraced Islam. The Gaekwad took her as his second wife in 1943, which caused consternation with the British authorities, as this violated the antibigamy laws that the previous Gaekwad of Baroda enacted. The British Viceroy in New Delhi summoned the Gaekwad to contest this marriage. The latter argued that the law applied to the subjects of Baroda, and that he being their monarch was exempt from this law. This was confirmed by the Viceroy's legal advisers. The British government accepted the marriage, but didn't refer to the Maharani as "Her Highness" as was the protocol for the consorts of rulers of princely states.
In 1946, the Gaekwad took his second wife on a tour of Europe. The reason for their visit was to find a suitable residence away from India.They found that the independent principality of Monaco was a suitable place to set up their second home. They bought a mansion in Monte Carlo and the Maharani took up permanent residence there.
