There is an exhibition about Anna Paulovna Romanova, Grand Duchess of Russia who became Princess of Orange in 1816 (200 years ago) and Queen of the Netherlands, Grand Duchess of Luxembourg in 1840.

A lot of jewels of the Queen went lost by fire, robbery or inheritance. An interesting piece showed up. Apparently in 1850, when Queen Anna Paulovna learned about the marriage of her Grootmeesteres ("Mistress of the Robes") Justina Maria Wilhelmina Baroness Van Nagell van Ampsen née Baroness Rengers, she spontaneously took off her jewels and gave it to her...

The Dutch noble family Van Nagell van Ampsen loaned these Orange-Nassau/Romanov jewels to the exhibition. They look surprisingly modern! Picture. I hope the family Van Nagell van Ampsen will give the King the first option when they would decide to sell it. Looks a nice and historic addition to the royal collection. The family still owns estates in the Netherlands and Germany, so they seem not too pauvre and in need to sell.

The Polish Crown Regalia consisted of several crowns, scepters, orbs, swords, and jewels. They were destroyed on the order of King Frederick William III of Prussia in March 1809.

The last wearer of the amethyst set seems to have been Jeanne Linnie Alice Clifford Kocq van Breugel née Baroness van Nagell (1918-2007). Her husband died last year: Jonkheer Willem François Clifford Kocq van Breugel (1914-2015).

Some googling learned that the Baroness was the last person with the surname Van Nagell. The couple lived at Schaffelaar Estate (picture). During her life the Baroness sold the building for 1 guilder to the municipality of Barneveld. The domain around was donated to the Foundation Guelders' Landscape.

After the death of the husband in 2015, the children donated artworks to several institutions. It would have been nice when the set was offered for sale to the royal family. Maybe this exhibition brings the King (Executive of the Foundation Crown Properties of the House Orange-Nassau) to make a purchase. This year it is 200 years ago that Anna Paulovna Romanova became Princess of Orange. It is a very historic piece and the Dutch collection lacks big eyepopping amethysts. What more reason does the Foundation need?


When the King can purchase villas, speedboats, breath-takingly expensive cars and order the Golden State Coach (and before that the Glass State Berline and the Crême Calèche) to be painfully restored against mega-amounts, he can purchase a set of jewels too.

I still think there is a lot of hidden and missing jewels from the Russian royal family and their relatives and Queen Marie of Romania as well.
