Wedding tiara of Princess Kristine Bagration-Moukhransky:


She is wife of Prince Juan Bagration. Does anyone know the provenance of this tiara? It could be either Georgian, German of Spanish based on his nearest ancestors.

The Albion Art Institute has posted about the Russian Aquamarine Kokoshnik on Instagram which I assume means it's part of their collection now.

Instagram - Albion Art Institute

The caption reads,
"Imperial Russian Diamond and Aquamarine Tiara by Koch - Circa 1910

Provenance: Russian Imperial Collection

Materials: #Aquamarine #Diamond #Platinum #Gold

Country: Germany

Size: L100mm W140mm H50mm

Albion Art Jewellery Institute"

The information that the tiara was made by Koch is new to me but maybe I just missed it before.

Hermitage Amsterdam tiara

On RJWMB there was a short discussion about a tiara exhibited among other jewelry items in Hermitage Amsterdam:

I also found this link with a tiara that looks almost identical:

Does anyone have some more info?
Are these tiaras the same?
Is it russian?

Hello, I am currently reading the book about Princess Helena Petrovna of Russia:

I found that in the book that upon her marriage to Prince of Imperial blood, neither she nor Princess Tatiana Konstantiovna were allowed to wear Russian Crown jewels that were only reserved for weddings of Grand Dukes and Grand Duchesses.

Princess Helena's marriage was the first marriage of Prince of Imperial blood(with royal Princess) and Grand Duke Konstantin asked, through court secretary Count Henrikov, Emperor Nicholas II and Empress Alexandra for an answer about what kind of jewels will the bride wear and got the answer that "Crown jewels" were only reserved for weddings of Grand Dukes and Grand Duchesses. What is interesting is that Empress Maria Feodorovna(Dagmar) disagreed with their decision and thought that Crown Jewels should be worn by every member of the family that contracts allowed(don't know if this means equal) marriage, as she was very pro marriage between Princess Tatiana and Prince Bagration when most of the Imperial family were against.

Anyway, Helena was presented with a Faberge tiara of brilliants and pearls from Emperor and the Empress, costing 10.300 rubles. She also got a diamond necklace from her husband Prince Ioann, which could be converted and worn as a second tiara. There is only one picture of Helena wearing a tiara:

Don't know about the date of this picture which could tell as if these jewels were worn by Helana as Serbian or Russian Princess. Here are few pictures of her mother Princess Zorka of Montenegro wearing similar tiara with floral motifs, but pictures are bad and can't be seen clearly enough:

This tiara seems to me like it was made from diamonds and pearls. Now, reading this book, regarding of the date, this tiara could be either her late mother's tiara of tiara/necklace she got from he husband. She was also presented with the order of Saint Catherine by their Majesties, but as I can't see clearly.

Regarding Princess Tatiana Konstantivovna of Russia and her marriage to Prince Konstantin Bagration-Mukhransky, she also got a Faberge tiara as a wedding present from Their Majesties, but this tiara was cheaper then the tiara made for Princess Helena Petrovna and costed 9.650 rubles.

This is Tatiana wearing this tiara:

As almost nothing is known about jewels of these two Imperial ladies here is some little clue. If you have some thoughts, please share pictures, facts and thoughts in other jewel forums(Royal Jewels of the World Message Board), as I don't have access :-(
