I think it would be great to add them to this section. I know there is no longer much, but, at least we can post what we have.

That's a lovely tiara. Thanks Julia! Who actually owns the tiara now? CP Alexander?
 
You are most welcome, Danielle! And, I think the family still owns the tiara but I could be wrong...

Thanks indeed Julia for not letting this small Royal family to slip into oblivion ;) by opening those lovely threads - this one happens to be one of my favorites!...
This is truly a very beautiful tiara. Thanks Julia for posting the photos!Regarding its present whereabouts I believe that to be the truth, although it has never been worn by female members of Royal family after the WWII as far as I am informed. Most certainly, it is not worn by Princesses Katarina or Jelisaveta today. I hope it is still owned by the family, so perhaps it could be actually seen either on Princesses or an exhibition of (remain) Royal Jewelry. It would be nice indeed.

Danjel's Royal Splendour Site is truly wonderful, and this is another, very small photo of Princess Olga wearing the tiara taken from this site as well as few details about tiara:

You are most welcome Blueice! I am becoming more and more fond of this royal family with each passing day...

Many thanks to you and other Yugoslavian royal family enthusiasts for sharing wonderful material in these threads.

I have to admit that I'm quite fond of this thread too! ;) The Yugoslavian royal jewels are some of the most beautiful I've seen.

Thanks so much for the information on the tiara. I, too, hope that the family still owns the tiara and maybe one of these days we will see it worn!

Gorgeous photo of HRH Princess Olga wearing the tiara; it's truly a splendid tiara and one of Boucheron's most beautiful!

Would this considered to be in the Kokoshnik style? It has that look of a halo that many of the Russian Kokoshniks have...

Thank you very much for your kind words Julia. :) The history of this Royal family hasn't been an easy one so it's members' personalities and political decisions were determined by demanding historical inheritance, challenging, hazardous political and social domestic scene during their ruling, balancing on the edge in the aria of national politics towards the west and the east and traditional rivalry with the House of Obrenovics (another Royal family of former Yugoslavia). There were plenty of difficult, hard, even cruel moments in their past which made them even more interesting to someone who is interested in this region's history and Royal Houses, and I am truly glad that this, not exactly well known or popular part of European history as well as not very well known Royal House is getting more interest. :)

Yes, I agree entirely - both Princess Olga's tiaras are splendid! Although Russian, Persian and British collections are absolutely superb, I love those few remained pieces that used to be part of that turbulent history of ours. :)

Indeed she looks so angelically and peacefully beautiful wearing Cartier's tiara. I love those photos and feel it to be a shame that the whereabouts of this tiara is unknown. It is such a beautiful peace - indeed it reminds very much to Russian kokoshnik style. I believe most of her tiaras were inspired by this style - typical for that historical period. I found them very romantic and truly beautiful.

Queen Marie is wearing a tiara of unknown provenance or whereabouts, but on the other hand, since this is a painting, this tiara can also be 'invented' by the painter.

Princess Katharina's Tiara

Mr. Desmond de la Silva and HRH Princess Katherine of Yugoslavia in 1987.

The brother of King Petar II, Prince Tomislav of Yugoslavia, married twice, first he married to HGDH Princess Margharita of Baden, after his divorce he married seconly to Linda Bonney.

In 1987 Princess Katharina of Yugoslavia, his daughter from his first marriage, married Mr. Desmond de la Silva. The bride was wearing a tiara of unknown provenance.

Unfortunately, this is a rather poor photo, so we can only speculate on the actual design of tiara. If anyone manage to find a better one, please post it here. Thanks. :)
