Above jewels given to HRH Princess Marina of Greece & Denmark when she married HRH The Duke of Kent, they include the fabulous diamond and sapphire parure that was sadly broken when the present Duke sold the tiara for death duties.
At about this time, Prince George (later, Duke of Kent), when he was about to marry Princess Marina, he visit Messrs. James R.Ogden Sons London. The Prince brought with him a box of jewellery which had once belonged to Queen Alexandra, and asked that it be converted into a diamond and pearl necklace. The firm carried out the Prince’s request, greatly to the delight of the Prince and the Princess.
That hugh and beautiful diamond bow brooch a Romanov heirloom, she received from her Mother as her wedding gift. It was orginally given to Grand Duchess Helen, daughter of Grand Duchess Wladimir, when she married Prince Nicholas of Greece.
The wedding of the Duke of Kent and Princess Marina of Greece on 29
November 1934 was the most exciting and and glittering event of the
decade. The bride and bridegroom are her seen at Buckinham Palace after
the magnificent service in Westminster Abbey.
When Princess Marina of Greece became the bride of Prince George, Duke
of Kent, in 1934, she indroduced a new elegance into the Royal Family.
