Well, Archduchess Marie-Astrid might be, as unlike her cousin Archduchess Astrid she didnīt receive/loan magnificent jewerlry from her in-laws.

To le soleil: I canīt remember many occassions where Archduchess Marie-Astrid wore elaborate jewelry after her marriage to Carl-Christian. She usually is very discrete (not only with jewels). I assume she can loan borrow some Luxembourg heirlooms from time to time though. I wonder if this branch of the Habsburg family has any important jewels. What tiaraīs did Archduchesses Alexandra and Constanza wear for their weddings? A Habsburg piece or something borrowed from the de Ligneīs/ Auerspergs.

Alexandra and Constanza had the same tiara on her Wedding. Recently it was also worn by Estelle de Saint-Romain the wife of Archduke Carl Christian.

I believe most jewels of Empress Zita were stolen somewhere in the 20-ties, I donīt know anything about the other branches of the family though.

Really? How interesting! I'd never heard of their theft. Do you have an article or something to refer us to?

Can anyone give me titles of books that I can purchase pertaining to Jewelry of the German Roya/Princely Families of Germany? I had posted this in library but no responses.

Thanks in advance!

The tiara Archduchess Francesca wore to the wedding of the Danish Crown Princely Couple is convertible into a necklace. She wore it as a necklace at a ball in Vienna. Unfortunately i have no pic.

Does anyone have clear a picture of Carina Axelsson and the tiara that she wore? Is it a Berleburg Tiara?
