And the terror would not stop until the Secret Police was sure all has been revealed.

And maybe the nobles thought their treasures were safe in churches, guarded by the Holy Virgin? Forget it. The Secret Police was the principal agency responsible for the detection, arrest, and liquidation of the aristocracy, the Russian-Orthodox Church, the bourgeoisie, anarchists and other dissident factions in the early Soviet Union. Castles, palaces, churches, monasteries, plenty of footage of the Soviets destroying them, one by one.

Maybe a babushka somewhere on a flat three-high in Tsarkoye Selo has a broche in a drawer. Okay. For the rest, we can trust on the Soviets: when they wanted to destroy, they destroyed.

It's not an obsession. I'm just saying the truth is a lot is hidden.

For your theory that there still is a lot hidden you have no proof except wishful thinking. The unbelievable campaign to destroy all what was valuable is described in several books:

History's Greatest Heist (picture)
The looting of Russia by the Bolsheviks
Sean McMeekin

Treasures Into Tractors (picture)

The selling of Russia's Cultural Heritage
Anne Odom and Wendy R. Salmond

The Selling Of Russia (picture)
Soviet trade in nationalized art
Natalya Semyonova and Nicolas V. Iljine

and -the saddest-

Former People (picture)
The final days of the Russian aristocracy
Douglas Smith

It isn't wishful thinking. Time and time again history has a way of mixing things up.

At the end of the day, I still believe a lot of Romanov and their relatives jewels are still hidden and missing.

The crown is both magnificent and haunting ,given that it last adorned Nicholas II .

Refreshing to discover its still in one piece and wasn't sold off.

Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrovna's mother-in-law, Duchess Eugenie of Oldenburg gave her a ruby-encrusted tiara that had been owned by Empress Josephine of France. What became of Olga's tiara?

Have we seen Olga or maybe Eugenie of Oldenburg wearing it? It would be interesting to see that. Or have there been any proof of an auction sale maybe?

Unfortunately I don't have a picture of the 'real' ruby tiara.
