The famous author wrote and self-illustrated seven copies of this rare treasure, donating six to “those most closely connected with the Harry Potter books”.
The seventh copy, made by Ms Rowling to raise funds for her charity Lumos, was auctioned by Sotheby’s in 2007 for £ 1.95million.
The stunning creation will be on display at an exhibition in Edinburgh from August 28 to September 5.
The Celebrating our Craft exhibit is curated by jeweler Hamilton and Inches, who designed the sought-after jewel-encrusted cover.
Located in their newly renovated showroom in Edinburgh, the exhibition aims to celebrate the company’s long-standing success.
With 155 years of exceptional works on display alongside the jewel-encrusted novel, the display case includes designs dating back to 1887.
Executives at the jewelry brand said showing off the work of their talented teams was the best way to celebrate this milestone.
Hamilton & Inches CEO Victoria Houghton said: “One hundred and fifty-five years in the business is a wonderful step to take and we want to make sure we mark the occasion correctly. Showcasing the pieces created by our extremely talented team and celebrating their craft is the perfect way to do it.
“We look forward to welcoming visitors and sharing the story of the items featured in the Celebrating our Craft showcase. “
