No. It has only ever been seen in the portraits of Elena when she was young, in her Russian court dress. Some question of what it actually was made of, if actually a tiara or simply cloth and backing to it which was common. I have seen on some boards that speculation Elena's daughter Olga wore it on her wedding day. But from the pictures, the veil hides most of the tiara she is wearing, it doesn't seem Olga did. Olga did inherit her mother's diamond kokoshnik tiara, it was her wedding gift.

Katharine, Duchess of Kent had a particular fondness for pearls and chokers. They are one of her trademark pieces of jewellery.

Wow imagine how much that would fetch at auction as there is a picture of Victoria actually wearing it. Heiresses and oligarchs would pay through the nose to own something like this even if it is light on the jewel front.
