 Empress Friedrich | Prussia Hohenzollern | Imperial Royal Marriage

In 1858 a royal wedding took place that was designed to align the fortunes of Europe's two most important powers, Great Britain and Germany's chief principality, Prussia.
The bride was Victoria, or “Vicky, Princess Royal” the oldest child of England's longest serving queen, Queen Victoria, and her husband, Prince Albert. The groom was Frederick, or “Fritz,” the son of King William of Prussia.
As the couple left St. James Chapel in London (not Berlin), they were serenaded by Mendelssohn's “Wedding March,” the first time it ever was played at a wedding.

For her wedding, Vicky wore a grown of white silk moiré over a petticoat flounced in lace and wreathed in sprays of orange blossom and myrtle. Her train was trimmed with white satin ribbons and lace. Her lace veil was held in place by a matching wreath, and she wore a diamond necklace, earrings, and brooch.

The Queen, who had chosen lilac silk moiré with a velvet train, wore the crown diamonds and a royal diadem of diamonds and pearls. Queen Victoria wore the George IV diadem.
An "european thinking" - the marriage was primarily the brainchild of Prince Albert, who dreamed that Great Britain and an eventually united Germany, under Prussian leadership, together would guide Europe into a future of liberalism, progress and prosperity.

For Fritz, Vicky ordered an engagement ring set with emerald exactly like the one her mother had given her father. Vicky asked her fiancé to wear it in the same way, on his little finger.

 Empress Friedrich | Royal Jewelry German Prussia Hohenzollern

When Elisabeth, Queen of Prussia, widow of Friedrich Wilhelm IV, herself died, she left her “magnificent” jewels to Vicky instead of to the Prussian crown, as was traditional with queens of Prussia. Vicky’s mother-in-law, Augusta, never forgave Vicky.
Augusta, who always resented the fact that her predecessor Queen Elisabeth had left her jewels to Vicky, took her revenge by leaving nothing to her daughter-in-law or Vicky’s daughters.
“The Empress left a very large fortune,” Vicky wrote Victoria. “Part goes to William, part to Henry … the largest part to Louise of Baden, & some to Vicky of Sweden… . I think what went to William, who does not want it, might have been parted amongst my 4 daughters & Henry’s son! But I did not expect we should be remembered.”

Empress Eugénie – Lilac Brooches

Eugénie, the last Empress of France, whose passion for jewellery was legendary, had such an exquisite collection, which was only surpassed by each of both of the last Empresses of Russia.
These two large flower brooches were purchased by the Empress as a personal possession and could be used as a stomacher or as a hair ornament.

Royal Bavaria – Wittelsbach Diamond Pearl Stomacher Brooch

Made from silver, gold, gilt,diamonds, pearl-drops and pearl probably in Germany 1710-1720 and once owned by Kurfürstin Elisabeth Auguste von der Pfalz (1721-1794).
Stomachers were very height of fashion in the 18th century and again during the Edwardian period, i. e. the early 20th century. Sometimes a stomacher is called „devant de corsage“ or a „corsage brooch“….

Wittelsbach Royal Stomacher Brooch in the Residenz in München

In the typical triangular shape, it adorned the front of the bodice, from the décolleté to the waist.
Flower or ribbon ornaments were a popular motif and could be broken down into separate pieces for easier handling.
These sections, like this one of the Munich Residence, which consists of 3 parts.
The delicate fragments were sewn onto each dress and have no brooch, just eyelets on the back for attachment. The diamonds are openly set in silver „a-jour“, as was customary at the time, and together with the velvety, shimmering pearls, they formed a jewel for the big event with candlelight, because that’s when it unfolds its full splendor and sparkles inimitable.
Unfortunately little is known of this equisite piece. Unfortunately, there are no paintings with the valuable from that time either.


Stomacher were a standard piece of jewelery in the 18th century and very common at court and again during the Edwardian period, ie early 20th century. Sometimes a stomer is called a „devant de corsage“ or a „corsagebrooch“.
