Die Tiara kam über Frederik VIII. Mit der in Schweden geborenen Königin Lovisa nach Dänemark, die sie von seiner Mutter erbte, der Tochter des ersten Besitzers, Louise von den Niederlanden. Der Perlenperlenschmuck besteht aus Geschenken und Erbstücken aus ganz Europa, die über mehrere Generationen hinweg gesammelt wurden. Seine Geschichte an sich zeigt die jahrhundertealten engen internationalen Beziehungen des dänischen Königshauses.

Friedrich Wilhelm III. Von Preußen (1770-1840

Die Königin trägt das historische Perlendiadem, das zu seiner Zeit für Prinzessin Louise von den Niederlanden (1808-1871) angefertigt wurde, die die Tochter von Friedrich Wilhelm III. Von Preußen war. Die Prinzessin ist die Mutter der jetzigen Königin Dänemarks, und das Diadem kam nach Dänemark im Zusammenhang mit der (8.) Ehe von Prinz Frederik mit der Enkelin der Prinzessin, Prinzessin Lovisa von Schweden (später Königin von Dänemark), die das Diadem von ihrer Mutter und Großmutter geerbt hatte.

Die Tiara besteht aus 18 birnenförmigen Perlen, die an mit Diamanten besetzten Arkaden hängen. Alles an der Tiara ist an einem mit Diamanten besetzten Ring befestigt. Die Tiara ist Teil des sogenannten Perlepoire-Sets, das ebenfalls aus einer Halskette, Ohrringen und einer großen und einer kleinen Brosche mit Diamanten besteht.

Die Königin hat die Tiara im Laufe der Zeit auf mehreren offiziellen Fotos getragen. Unter anderem die erste als Dänemarks Regentin im Jahr 1972. Vor dieser Zeit trugen Königin Ingrid und Königin Alexandrine die Tiara auf offiziellen Gala-Porträts in ihrer Zeit als Königinnen von Dänemark.

The suite Indian ornaments, consisting corsage, pair bracelets, and armlet, entirely composed of pearls, emeralds, and diamonds, the gift of the Queen.
These are, indeed, " barbaric gold and genu," for all the jewels having been cut and set in India are of course ia the pure Oriental style—that is to say, the diamonds are flat and lustreless, and the fine are drilled through and spoilt by holes in fact, though the value of this present must be very great, it is much more curious than beautiful, and the much resemble coramon glass as it is ia the power of such rich and rare gems do.

Tsars Wedding gift bandeau  to Queen Alexandrine, seen above in the picture

attributed to  C.E. Bolin, Saint Petersburg 1897-1898, „The Russian Sapphire Tiara“. Provenance: Gift from Tsar Nikolai II of Russia to Queen Alexandrine. Estimate: DKK 1.5-2 million. Sold for: DKK 2 million (EUR 350,000 including buyer’s premium).

Friday afternoon, a historical treasure was up for auction at Bruun Rasmussen in Copenhagen. Queen Alexandrine’s Russian sapphire tiara was sold for DKK 2 million.

„The Russian sapphire tiara is by far the most spectacular Russian objet d’art we have ever sold at Bruun Rasmussen. Here beauty and history come together at the highest level. I am overwhelmed by all the attention this piece of jewellery has garnered from our customers and the Danish and international press,“ says Martin Hans Borg, Bruun Rasmussen’s Head Specialist in Russian Art.

In 1898, Princess Alexandrine of Mecklenburg-Schwerin was married to the Danish Crown Prince Christian in Cannes, and the couple were in 1912 proclaimed Queen Alexandrine and King Christian X of Denmark.

One of their wedding presents was the beautiful sapphire bandeau, later rebuild to an tiar.  They were given the piece of jewellery by Tsar Nikolai II and Tsaritsa Alexandra Feodorovna of Russia.

In 1933, the Danish royal couple passed on the piece of jewellery to their daughter-in-law Hereditary Princess Caroline-Mathilde at her wedding to their youngest son Hereditary Prince Knud at the Fredensborg Palace Chapel.

After the Hereditary Princess‘ death in 1995, the tiara was given to her son Count Christian of Rosenborg and his family, where it has been until today.

It was the three daughters of Count Christian, Josephine, Camilla and Feodora of Rosenborg, who sold the tiara at the Russian auction.

über Königlichen Schmuck und deren Geschichte!

Als ich 2016 die ersten Bilder der Herzogin von Kent entdeckte und die erste Magazinseite entstand, wusste ich noch nicht, dass es sich um eine der wichtigen Schmuckstücke der Liste aus dem Verkauf der Romanov Juwelen von Zarinwitwe Maria Alexandrovna handelt.
1928, wurden sie nach einer Schätzung  des Juweliers Hennell London von ihrer Tochter Grossfürstin Xenia, zum Verkauf angeboten.  Es war eines der kostbaren Juwelenbroschen von Maria Feodorovna, der privaten Romanov Juwelen, keine Kronjuwelen. Ein weiters Schmuck-Rätsel ist gelöst.

When I discovered the first pictures of the Duchess of Kent in 2016 and the first magazine page was created, I did not yet know that this was one of the important jewels on the list from the sale of the Romanov jewels by Dowager Empress Maria Alexandrovna.
In 1928, according to an estimate by the jeweller Hennell London, they were offered for sale by their daughter Grand Duchess Xenia. It was one of the precious jewel brooches of Maria Feodorovna, the private Romanov jewels, not crown jewels. Another jewelry puzzle is solved.
