Indeed. It was inherited by Marina's older sister Elizabeth (both sisters wore it on their wedding). Helene wore the tiara on her wedding, as have both her daughter and daughter in law.

Lovely coincidence, her daughter Sophie is married to Ella's godfather Mariano.

Here is Ella's godfather and his bride in the Vladamir tiara on their wedding day.

I find fringe tiaras elegent but my issue with them is most of them seem to look almost identical. And not just the two Marina wore. But Queen Elizabeth's tiara and the Swedish Baden fringe all look identical or near to.

They both look marvelous except Princess Michael tiara seems a little crooked. I love her necklace too and the way it goes with her pink top perfectly

Have we seen the necklace before or is it a new design?

The diamond pendant is actually a brooch inherited from Queen Mary. It belonged to Tsar Nicholas II's mother, Empress Maria, and the Princess alternates between wearing it as a brooch or pendant. Her diamond earrings look new though.

Wouldn't it be fantastic if there is/was a book on the Kent Jewels? Does anyone know if that the case. Would love to see it before they are lost to history. Same with the Gloucester jewels. During the reign of Charles and the advancing age of the current Gloucesters and Kents, will we see the Kent jewels again?

Princess Alexandra looks absolutely lovely.

Wonderful to see Princess Alexandra’s diamond and pearl brooch (a gift from her Godmother, the late Queen Mother) again ! I was afraid that she had sold it.

The Kents and the Gloucesters will become just another (non-royal) ducal house in the peerage of the United Kingdom when the current generation of grandchildren of King George V passes away. They will keep some (maybe most ?) of their jewels and sell some other items. but the opportunities to wear them will be the same as other ducal families have nowadays, which are very limited. I don't think any of the Duke of Kent's or the Duke of Gloucester's children or grandchildren will be normally invited to state dinners when Charles or even more so William are on the throne.

Yes, that's a stunning brooch. Never mind the diamond's, those pearls must be worth a fortune.

I believe it was a baptismal gift.

Thank you, ldmemail. Makes sense that it was a christening present, Queen Elizabeth being her godmother.

It's certainly a beautiful brooch and I was a thrilled to see it again. I believe the last time it was pictured on Princess Alexandra was back in 2007 at the reception for the Corps Diplomatique.

The Kent Pearl Fringe Tiara | The Court Jeweller

Interesting tiara but I dislike it. I don't like the design.

Is the fringe part of this tiara wedding gift from Worsley family?
