Before the Madonna's coat was renewed in 1991 and the jewelry was rearranged, the figure was covered with countless pieces of jewelry. It has been customary for a long time to present this Madonna figure in the Cologne Cathedral with ornaments made of gold and silver. In addition to some votive offerings specially made for this purpose, the largest part of the jewelry consists of personal jewelry, such as gold and pearl necklaces, small crosses, rings, bracelets, earrings and watches made of gold. All the faithful were shaken when the pane in front of the Madonna was smashed on 4 January 1969 and part of the jewelry was stolen.
