Do you mean the large kokoshnik from Olga's mother Elena? I cant think of another Cartier tiara in the family, but this one doesn't resamble the kokoshnik, IMO.

Yes, that one.

After the war it has been, sort of, remodeled...diamond drops that hanged were removed and tiara looked different.

And from this angle it doesn't look like that, but it is. The central element is clearly seen in Elizabeth's head, but the rest is looking different due to angle of the photo.

Here is the same tiara worn by Elizabeth's former sister in law Maria Pia:

I can see your poit, Marc23. I *think* I see the collet diamonds on top, but the distinctive curve of the kokoshnik isn't there. At least I can not see it.
But since the family didn't have anything other that resambles what Elizabeth wore in 1955, you might be right.

Welll, they did have the splendid Boucheron diamond tiara, but she is obviously not wearing that tiara.

The main jewels were Princess Olga's, Prince Paul's wife . She got them from her Mother Grand Duchess of Russia;
Princess Barbara sold them to Albion Japan .
The main Branch, Prince Alexander owns only a small tiara. I don't know which tiara his Mother wore in the past.

This tiara didn't come from Princess Olga's mother, but Prince Paul inherited this tiara from his aunt, Princess Moina Demidoff di San Donato, Princess Abamalek-Lazarev. Prince Paul's mother came from a fabulously wealthy family and he inherited most from his mother Aurora and his aunt also, who also left him almost everything.

This tiara that was sold to Albion was a very valuable Boucheron tiara, as the biggest diamonds in tiara were the rare yellow diamonds.

That's a very interesting case. Is it possible, that the Cartier kokoshnik was convertible so that it could be worn in a smaller version? The full Cartier tiara was enormously huge, while this one looks only slightly larger than Queen Mary's bandeau tiara, which is worn by Princess Alexandra of Kent i this pic. But with the upper part of the kokoshnik coming off, that might have looked like the one worn by the Princess here.

I don't think so...

The only jewels that COULD be inherited and seen yet so far is the strand of pearls necklace.

Maybe I am wrong, but I assumed this based on pictures:

I think she has worn the "smaller version" of Cartier tiara...but without diamond drops, not without upper part of the tiara. In the picture the tiara looks rather big on Elizabeth's head, no matter it's hardly seen due to angle, but the central part of the tiara is recognizable.

Her mother Olga also wore this remodeled version several times:

This tiara went to King Peter Ii and Queen Alexandra. I saw only one smallPicture.
They sold he tiara to van Cleef and Arpels , who sold the emerald cabochons to Chaumet.
The tiara on display in Brussels was with fake emeralds.

Khm, really don't know who could it be :(

I have seen "diamond" tiara at the beginning. The woman who wears it looks like an "adult movie star".
