Two more of the wedding gift of Tsar Nikolas II and Tsarina Alexandra Feodorovna to Grand Duchess Marie Georgievna Romanov:
From her jewel album, we see on the kokoshnik eight diamond buttons as center of the stars, a sautoir – link chain in diamond as frame on the kokoshnik from the Empress Dowager Marie Feodorovna, and the hanging 4-rows of pearls with a large sapphire and diamond clasp(not seen) from the Emperor and Empress of Russia.
The pearl choker on her neck is also with a matching clasp, a cluster with sapphire cabochon and double row of diamonds.
On top an four pedal clover on large diamonds, a earlier present of the groom.
In front of her gown are also diamond buttons from the grooms mother Empress Olga Feodorovna, in total 16 in two sizes. On the head we could see a link chain in large diamond, probably the present of Empress Dowager Marie Feodorovna.
The ruby and diamond stomacher is an heirloom of Grand Duchess Olga Feodorovna Romanov, she left it to her son Grand Duke Georg Mihailovich.

„NEW“ Tsars Treasure – A mystery is this imperial diamond briolettes‘ tiara, which is on the picture of the Tsars Treasure of Tobolsk, clearly to recognize, on the large table, which was on display, together with the 154 jewel items. It was pictured but not on the jewel list. Probably it was broken in the center. Another royal briolette tiara is know from the danish royal family, which look a like it parts. See in the middle, above on the top of the pic and I believe the arches are variable to move to build arches or like these pattern on the picture.The whereabouts is unknown.
