Oak leave - Diamond Tiara | Princesses of Albania | Crown | Royal Jewels
Das Diadem der Prinzessinnen, aus Diamanten und Platin, zeigt das königliche Wappen der "Ram von Skanderbeg" mit Eichenlättern.
Prinzessinen waren die Schwestern des Königs Zogu der Albaner. Oben Prinzessin Ruhije (links), Prinzessin Myzeyen (in schwarzem Satin, mitte) und Prinzessin Senije(rechts) sie heiratete 1936 den türkischen Prinz Mehmet Abid (1905-1973), Sohn von Sultan Abdulhamid II der Türkei.
The Princesses' tiaras are of platinum and diamonds. The centre motif is the helmet of Skanderbeg, while the sides represent Albanian oaks. Designed by Marianne Ostier in 1938 for Österreicher, the predecessor of Ostier Inc., New York. The Royal Princesses were the sisters of King Zog of the Albanians.

Two of the five Albanian princesses owned a tiara in this style; another tiara was made by Köchert and the sketch of the jewel is known.
This tiara was sold at auction in 1985 in Spain and it was wrongly described as the tiara of the Queen, which it was not. It was offered by Duran Madrid for 3 240 000 pesetas.
The very exclusive jewels which were worn by the princesses were later on display in 1959. More information about the princesses is available at the Albanian Royal Family Official Website.
