There is an exhibition about Anna Paulovna Romanova, Grand Duchess of Russia who became Princess of Orange in 1816 (200 years ago) and Queen of the Netherlands, Grand Duchess of Luxembourg in 1840.

A lot of jewels of the Queen went lost by fire, robbery or inheritance. An interesting piece showed up. Apparently in 1850, when Queen Anna Paulovna learned about the marriage of her Grootmeesteres ("Mistress of the Robes") Justina Maria Wilhelmina Baroness Van Nagell van Ampsen née Baroness Rengers, she spontaneously took off her jewels and gave it to her...

The Dutch noble family Van Nagell van Ampsen loaned these Orange-Nassau/Romanov jewels to the exhibition. They look surprisingly modern! Picture. I hope the family Van Nagell van Ampsen will give the King the first option when they would decide to sell it. Looks a nice and historic addition to the royal collection. The family still owns estates in the Netherlands and Germany, so they seem not too pauvre and in need to sell.

The Polish Crown Regalia consisted of several crowns, scepters, orbs, swords, and jewels. They were destroyed on the order of King Frederick William III of Prussia in March 1809.

The last wearer of the amethyst set seems to have been Jeanne Linnie Alice Clifford Kocq van Breugel née Baroness van Nagell (1918-2007). Her husband died last year: Jonkheer Willem François Clifford Kocq van Breugel (1914-2015).

Some googling learned that the Baroness was the last person with the surname Van Nagell. The couple lived at Schaffelaar Estate (picture). During her life the Baroness sold the building for 1 guilder to the municipality of Barneveld. The domain around was donated to the Foundation Guelders' Landscape.

After the death of the husband in 2015, the children donated artworks to several institutions. It would have been nice when the set was offered for sale to the royal family. Maybe this exhibition brings the King (Executive of the Foundation Crown Properties of the House Orange-Nassau) to make a purchase. This year it is 200 years ago that Anna Paulovna Romanova became Princess of Orange. It is a very historic piece and the Dutch collection lacks big eyepopping amethysts. What more reason does the Foundation need?

;-)

When the King can purchase villas, speedboats, breath-takingly expensive cars and order the Golden State Coach (and before that the Glass State Berline and the Crême Calèche) to be painfully restored against mega-amounts, he can purchase a set of jewels too.

I still think there is a lot of hidden and missing jewels from the Russian royal family and their relatives and Queen Marie of Romania as well.

They found her father’s grand master’s badge and star of the Order of St Patrick hidden away in trunks filled with tiaras and other family treasures in the vaults of Hoare’s private bank.

My favorite line of the story. Can you imagine stumbling upon an old trunk, say in your attic, and opening it to find tiaras and treasures?

The article speaks of 'trunks filled with tiaras'. Just imagine the surprise when the trunk was opened first!

The treasures will be auctioned at Sotheby's but the article sadly did not have a link to the auction catalogue.

Yes indeed and seeing as the Order of St Patrick is now dormant it was a very exciting find.

The Russian royal family had the best jewels in the monarchy correct? I read other royal houses envied their jewels.

According to The Royal Watcher, it is Empress Feodorovna's sapphire bandeau.

Queen Maud of Norway received a lot of jewels to her wedding in 1896. One of them was a double riviere necklace of diamonds and rubies. Where is this necklace today? There is no photo of it. Kind of strange, because this was the most prominent gift. It was the gift from the Queen Victoria. It must have been dismantled and reused or sold. Queen Sonja don't have any ruby jewels today. And the rubies of Princess Astrid, they come from another gift to Queen Maud, an Aigrette, earrings and a brooch. Did it disappear when it was stored at Windsor from Maud's death from 1938 until Crown Prince Olav got the jewels back in 1953? Or did Maud not like it from the beginning?

Queen Alexandra was Princess Alexandra of Denmark when she wed Albert Edward, Prince of Wales in 1863. One of her wedding gifts was the Rundell Tiara. The Rundell Tiara was inherited by Princess Victoria, Alexandra's daughter. Did not Princess Victoria bequeath the tiara to either of her nieces: Princess Alexandra, 2nd Duchess of Fife or Princess Maud, Countess of Southesk?
This replica looks similar to the Rundell Tiara.
