Empress Alexandra Feodorovna | Princess Alexandra of Hesse

Schmuck der Zaren | Juwelen des Zar von Russland

1894 erhielt die Firma Faberge einen großen Auftrag für zwei prunkvolle Halsketten im Gesamtwert von mehr als 345 000 Rubel, die für Prinzessin Alix, Alexandra von Hessen, der Braut des Zarewitsch Nikolaus, vom Bräutigam beziehungsweise dessen Eltern geschenkt wurden.
Es ist leider nicht zuzuordnen, welche Perlen-Kette die Zarin später auf den Abbildungen trägt, denn es gab im Bestand des „Imperialen Diamant Fond“ noch andere Perlenketten, der ehemaligen Zarinnen, die sie dem Fond vermacht hatten, dies war ein Gesetz von Zar Paul I.
Dazu kamen jedoch persönliche Schmuckstücke über die Jahre, die dem persönlichen Schmuck und Juwelen Besitz der Zarinnen zuflossen und sie behalten durften.
Bekannt sind davon, ein rosa Perlen Ring, den die Zarin Alexandra immer trug, es war ihr Verlobungsring.
Ihr Kettenarmband mit einem riesigen Smaragd, ein Geschenk vom Zarewitsch in Windsor, sowie eine Kette aus rosa Perlen, alles Geschenke vor der Hochzeit.
Der Zar von Russland schickte seiner zukünftigen Schwiegertochter eine wunderbare Saphir-und Diamant-Brosche.

Dazu gehörte auch Schmuck und Juwelen der in Tobolsk 1933 gefunden wurden, zusammen mit der Aquamarin Devante de Corsage.

Romanov Jewels |  Jewel of the Tsar

Wedding gift to Princess Alix of Hesse-Darmstadt  when she married Nicholas II of Russia, she received a very long sautoir of pearls, the most expensive gift, with an sapphire clasp, by Fabergé .The cost was 177.000 roubles (to compare-the most expensive egg ever ordered was the 1913 Winter Egg at 24,600 roubles ).

An  impressive diamond necklace about roubles 168.000 was the second one, ordered from the last tsar and tsarina, her future parents-in-law .

Personal Jewels of Empress Alexandra Feodorovna:
The pink pearl ring that the Empress always wore was her engagement ring. Her chain bracelet, with a huge emerald, was a present given by the Tsarevich at Windsor, as was a necklace of pink pearls; and the Emperor of Russia sent a marvellous sapphire and diamond brooch.
As well as the Personal jewels and items – found at Tobolsk in 1933 such as the Aquamarine stomacher formed of twigs stutted with diamonds.

The imperial diamond fond:
Peter I. has founded this fond to which each emperor or empress had to make some deposits at various distinctive occasions like coronations or when celebrating a jubilee. The wedding-parures of each of the crown princesses were also a regular donation to the fond. In the Winter-Place was a special department which took care of the fond and the Lord Stewards had the right to force deposits of the monarchs if they had the feeling that a monarch was not so generous, so that the fond was still growing over the centuries.
