Princess Helen of Waldeck-Pyrmont | Duchess of Albany | Jewels

Schmuck und Juwelen | Hochzeits Geschenke für die Prinzessin Helen von Waldeck-Pyrmont anlässlich Ihrer Hochzeit mit dem Prinzen Leopold von England, Herzog von Albany.
Prinzessin Helen, wie sie sich nach der Hochzeit mit dem englischen Prinzen nannte, um sich von der Tochter von Queen Victoria, Prinzessin Helena, zu unterscheiden.
Alter Schmuck erzählt immer eine Geschichte – und verleiht der Trägerin einen ganz besonderen Zauber, das weiß man in den Königshäuser und vererbt, diese Stücke gerne weiter, so wie hier von der Herzogin an Ihre Tochter Alice.

Wedding gifts and Royal Presents for the future Duchess of Albany

other wedding gifts:
There are different pictures of the wedding – one in the newspaper -a sketch- which she wore, the necklace and the Waldeck Tiara…and a later version for the officiel photo ..with her „new“ jewels.

I think she wore, in tradition (the last time) the tiara of her family, the Waldeck Tiara and had pinned the sprays together- and on her gown…
The diamond spray brooch, was later given to her daughter Princess Alice Countess of Athlone ..
