It sounds interesting do you have picture of it please?

A beautiful and delicate tiara. What an honor it must be to wear something like that on your wedding day

HRH Duchess Elisabeth of Mecklenburg, nee Princess of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach is wearing a rather unfortunate creation, and she seems to realise it too The pearls are to die for, of course.

ye Gods and little fishes, the pearls are to die for. Re the tiara if they had just left off the top circle of emeralds or whatever and just kept the bottom row of jewels the tiara would really be quite lovely but the way it is is definately overdone. But interesting nevertheless. Cheers.

Her mother, Grand Duchess Sophie of Saxe-Weimar, nee Pss of The Netherlands didn´t like to smile either. How can one look so grumpy when you have this amount of pearls almost literally showered over you. I believe they came from Russia with Sophie´s mother, Queen Anna Pavlovna.

I think that could be the tiara which belong to Princess Sophie of the NEtherlans who married in 1842 GD Carl Alexander of SWE. By this marriage a lot of priceless jewellery was brought into the royal house, since Sophie's mother was the jewel-loving Queen Anne Paulovna of the Netherlands, born Grand Duchess of Russia.

Indeed, and Queen Anna disinherited her eldest son, leaving even more jewels for Sophie to enjoy

Sophie Pss von Schönburg-Waldenburg (Potsdam 21 May 1885-Fontaneli, Moldavia 3 Feb 1936) was a daughter of Victor von SW and Lucie zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg. Sophie was a wife of Wilhelm I zu Wied Prince d'Albanie (1876-1945). But it's hard to say something more about this tiara.

It's a pretty tiara.

I actually have a question: We've all heard the stories about the theft of the Hesse jewels during the second world war. Aside from the Hesse Spike Tiara, I was wondering if anyone knew anything--or even had pictures of--the pieces that were either destroyed or are still owned by the family today.

Viele Danke/Much Thanks,
Chota

Edit: my error. What follows refers to the Belgian Astrid, not the Luxembourg Marie Astrid. Nonetheless, any excuse for a good pic!

(Princess/Archduchess) Astrid has been loaned some magnificant pieces from the Austria-Estes: see here. More Aosta than Habsburg, but no-one's complaining.
