Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna has at least one diamond tiara. Check out her threads in the Russian Imperial Family forum.

No. This one is in the posession of her grandaughter Archduchess Helen of Austria, née Countess of Toerring-Jettenbach. It was worn by Helen's daughter Sophie and daughter-in-law Maya Askari on their Wedding Days.

Although some of the Romanov jewels ended up by sale in the United Kingdom (most notably the Grand Duchess Wladimir Tiara), Princess Michael of Kent's fringe tiara was a gift from the city of London to her mother-in-law, Princess Marina of Greece and Denmark.

However, I cannot recall which one it was. I would be most grateful if anyone would be kind enough to post these pictures. Or else any fotos of her in her jewels would be good enough.

I did manage to save the beautiful portrait showing the Duke & Duchess of Edinburgh, the Hereditary Prince Alfred & the Princess Marie & the Grand Duke & Grand Duchess of Hesse. I forgot that I had saved the photo into my computer. I'm not sure of the website i had saved it from. More photos of the bejeweled Grand Duchess Maria please..... anyone.
First of all........ WOW! What a picture.
Who is this.... Missy, Marie, Affie, Ducky.... I am missing some faces...

Queen Marie of Romania purchased some of her relatives' jewels after they left Russia to help them out financially. The most spectacular purchase was Grand Duchess Marie's sapphire tiara, which she left to Princess Ileana. It was later sold by The Princess after WW2.

They had a Faberge exhibit at the portland Art Museum about 3 to 4 years ago here. I was able to see the Imperial Red Cross Easter Egg. What a delight!

Princess Paley tiara

Here's an interesting diamond and aquamarine tiara made in 1912 and once belonging to Olga, HSH Princess Paley.

Princess Paley (1865-1929) was the morganatic wife of Grand Duke Paul Alexandrovitch of Russia.
Both her husband and son Vladimir were murdered by the Bolsheviks; she escaped to Finland with her two daughters.
She had quite a collection of jewels, this is one of them.

I guess so, and they have since sold it, hence the tiara appearing on the Sotheby's website.
Realistically, it's not the sort of jewellery the average person would have a use for.

Anyone have any idea who bought it? Of course most people would have no use fo this type of jewelry, but the people in a position to buy this kind of stuff aren't average people.

The tiara was made in 1912. Grand Duke Paul Alexandrovitch married Olga Karnovitch, later Princess Paley, in 1902.

It's fascinating how opulent Imperial Russia was to the very last, or close to the very last. That tiara was made in 1912, the revolution occured in 1917. Anyone know who made this tiara?

I think you could turn the tiara around and wear it as a necklace. Its not too much.
