Wow! Amazing! Such a sad ending for the Russian jewels....

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Russian Pearl Pendant Kokoshnik

This is one of my favorites! This tiara is absolutely breathtaking. I love the shape of the pearls, the kokoshnik shape, the diamond arches, and the way it seems to float over the diamond base. It's regal, grand, and just magnificent.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Russian Wave Pattern Tiara

This tiara is also spectacular! I love the grand and exquisite presence of this tiara. It is also very beautiful as a necklace. The brooch is also stunning. One of my absolute favorites.

Alexandra Feodorovna looks very stylish wearing the Russian Large Pearl Pendant Tiara.

I think that this is the same diadem she later wore with rubies instead of pearls for an official picture...

That picture shows the tiara better than all the pictures I have seen of it before. And I agree that it looks very much like her ruby tiara. I wonder what happened to this tiara. It seems strange that she hasn't worn it for such a long time. The Grand Duchess now favours the new kokoshnik style tiara with diamonds and pearls. Did she have to sell the wedding tiara at some point? Or does she simply prefer the traditional russian kokoshnik style of the new tiara?

Might her Wedding Tiara have been [whispers it quietly] a Hohenzollern piece ?

No idea! I have never seen it on any other person, nor have I ever seen her mother-in-law or grandmother-in-law with a tiara. Afaik Prince Franz Wilhelm of Prussia is the eldest son of an only child. So it is not unlikely that any major jewels of his grand-mother would have gone to him. And his grand-mother's generation certainly still had this kind of jewels.

I think that Maria Vladimirovna and her husband separated comparatively soon after Georgi's birth. I am quite sure that she continued to wear it after the separation. But that is possible if the tiara was an outright wedding present to her.

So it's not impossible, but there is no proof either.

Look what I just found in a forgetten corner of my hard disk:

Do you also think that it might be a combination of the rubies and the pearls on the same tiara?

I don't think these are rubies,but diamonds as she wore it for her wedding...But as the picture is black and white,one can't see it properly...

Rubies she wore in her tiara were,I think,in different shape...

Now,the things with her and Russia have changed over the years and I think due to this connection she opted to wear kokoshnik tiara more than the other one and to show everyone how does she feel...

I may be wrong,but that is just my impression...

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Russian Aquamarine Kokoshnik Tiara

I find this tiara very stunning. I love the color of those stones, and it's a great size and shape. It's one of my favorite aquamarine tiaras. It's a very regal and beautiful tiara.

Did you get color. It is just a muddy brown for me. What am I missing?

Countess, there are no colour photos of this tiara in existance. Those pics date from the time when the early soviets photographed the confiscated jewels and prepared them for auction. So the picture in the blog is an old brownish (sepia) black and white pic. The pic IlovePC posted is the same but colourised with the help of photoshop.

Just as my interest levels were on the rise I went & read it has since vanished after being sold by the Soviet government in the 1920s
