Those stones in the necklace are actually large diamonds, in the book "Queens Jewels" on the russian section they show a large picture of it and it is or was part of the Russian state diamond fund, with the largest diamond weighing 32 carats.

The Romanov jewels are truly out of this world, some of the omst grand jewels I have ever seen. A marvellous collection.

The Romanov's certainly had one of the worlds grandest and marvellous collections in the world.

Russian RF's jewels are wonderful and very preciouse indeed, I think the only one can be compared with it is the jewels which used belong to EX Iranian Imperial family.

I've just wondered what was in Mr. Putin' mind while seeing the crown (with that expression) http://img74.imageshack.us/my.php?image=570163711mt.jpg

Is this Maria Feodorovna, wife of Alexander II?

To be perfectly honest, I don't really know!:( But I did find those pictures (2 - 6) on a website called Best of Russia it has a lot of great info and stuff but they don't mention the name! All it really says is that it was made for the coronation of Peter the Great or Catherine the great. Anyways, sorry if that didn't help much! :o

I think it unlikely the Hesse aquamarine tiara was acquired by the Windsors. A much earlier post in this thread said the tiara was auctioned. Nothing more.

The aquamarine tiara belonged to Empress Alexandra's sister Ella who was married to Nicholas's uncle Sergei. It was auctioned a few years ago and I doubt the Windsors would buy it. They have enough jewels that they don't wear.
