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.

In August 1909, Tsar Nicholas II and his family made their last visit to England. They attended the annual regatta at Cowes on the Isle of Wight, and the royal families dined together on each other’s yachts. A local photographer was commissioned to record the occasion and produced a double portrait of the Prince of Wales (later King George V) and his cousin Emperor Nicholas, which shows the strong family resemblance.
During the visit the Princess of Wales (later Queen Mary) was given a jewel as present, see above in the picture, a diamond-set Fabergé brooch made from a Siberian amethyst, a stone famous for its intense purple hue.
