Order of the Ascending Sun (Udayadita), Breast Star
Estimated market value:
The Order of the Ascending Sun (Udayadita) was established by HH Farzand-i-Khas-i-Daulat-i-Inglishia Shirimant Maharaja Sir Sayaji Rao III Gaekwar Sena Khaos Khel Shamsher Bahadur in 1909. The Order of the Ascending Sun (Udayadita) may have been created as the II Class of the Order of the Sun. However, due to variations in classification across sources, the 3 Orders are classified here as separate products associated with the Order of the Sun. The Order is thought to have been made obsolete in 1941 or 1956.
The Order of the Ascending Sun (Udayadita) Breast Star is worn with a neck ribbon and features a Sanskrit inscription of the Order's motto, "SATYAMEVA JAYATE", which translates to "Truth Shall Triumph."
The Breast Star is similar in design to the Special Class Breast Star of the Most Noble Order of the Vikramaditya, but does not feature diamonds or rubies.
The design of the royal cypher Order may have been altered in 1939 to reflect Pratap Singh's accession to the throne.
