After the Russian Imperial Romanov family, and those imprisoned with them, were shot and bayoneted to death in Yekaterinburg in July 1918, the House of Fabergé was nationalized and looted by the Bolsheviks. The legendary jeweler Peter Carl Fabergé  also known as Karl Gustavovich Fabergé  and members of his family fled their native Russia on what became the final diplomatic train to Riga, Latvia, never to return to their cherished motherland.

 When Fabergé saw that all was lost – all of the members of the imperial family on Russian soil had been murdered – he decided that was it, his whole world had collapsed, and he fled to Switzerland, where he died in 1920 of   a broken heart,  Switzerland from 1967 to 1984. He previously chaired Christie’s Europe from 1980 to 1984, and Habsburg International Auctions from 1987 to 1991. He lectured for a decade at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Following the Russian Revolution, the Bolsheviks ransacked the Romanov palaces, and most of the Fabergé eggs, along with huge amounts of imperial gold, silver, jewels, and Russian Orthodox icons, were inventoried, packed in crates, and moved to the Kremlin Armory. Several Fabergé eggs disappeared in the process. The Dowager Empress was able to save the Order of St. George egg, along with other valuables, when she was evacuated from Yalta to England. |Kronprinzessin Cecilie von Preussen|wedding gift from Anastasia Michaelovna Grand Duchess of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, her mother|Hohenzollern Crown Princess Cecilie Wedding Jewels |Royal Jewel German Empire Prussia monarchy, diamond forget me nots kokoshnik style Faberge Diamond Tiara|Kronprinzessin Cecilie von Preussen|wedding gift from Anastasia Michaelovna Grand Duchess of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, her mother|Hohenzollern Crown Princess Cecilie Wedding Jewels |Royal Jewel German Empire Prussia monarchy, diamond forget me nots kokoshnik style DUCHESS CECILIE VON MECKLENBURG-SCHWERIN, PRINCESS WILHELM VON HOHENZOLLERN, PRINCESS VON PRUSSIA Faberge Diamond Tiara|Kronprinzessin Cecilie von Preussen|wedding gift from Anastasia Michaelovna Grand Duchess of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, her mother|Hohenzollern Crown Princess Cecilie Wedding Jewels |Royal Jewel German Empire Prussia monarchy, diamond forget me nots kokoshnik style Faberge Diamond Tiara|Kronprinzessin Cecilie von Preussen|wedding gift from Anastasia Michaelovna Grand Duchess of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, her mother|Hohenzollern Crown Princess Cecilie Wedding Jewels |Royal Jewel German Empire Prussia monarchy, diamond forget me nots kokoshnik style Faberge Diamond Tiara|Kronprinzessin Cecilie von Preussen|wedding gift from Anastasia Michaelovna Grand Duchess of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, her mother|Hohenzollern Crown Princess Cecilie Wedding Jewels |Royal Jewel German Empire Prussia monarchy, diamond forget me nots kokoshnik style Faberge Diamond Tiara|Kronprinzessin Cecilie von Preussen|wedding gift from Anastasia Michaelovna Grand Duchess of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, her mother|Hohenzollern Crown Princess Cecilie Wedding Jewels |Royal Jewel German Empire Prussia monarchy, diamond forget me nots kokoshnik style Faberge Diadem pruessische kronprinzessin Vergissmeinnicht Muster Ornamente in Silber Gold Diamanten Faberge Diamond Tiara|Kronprinzessin Cecilie von Preussen|wedding gift from Anastasia Michaelovna Grand Duchess of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, her mother|Hohenzollern Crown Princess Cecilie Wedding Jewels |Royal Jewel German Empire Prussia monarchy, diamond forget me nots kokoshnik style

Crown Princess Cecilie of Prussia |FABERGE Diamond Tiara wedding gift from Anastasia Mikhailovna Romanov Grand Duchess of Mecklenburg-Schwerin | German Empire Jewelry History

When Duchess Cecilie of Mecklenburg-Schwerin married the Crown Prince of Prussia in 1905, she received many magnificent wedding gifts. Among them were three magnificent tiaras.

"There sparkles and shines of diamonds, the delicate diadem, the gift of the crown prince gave to his bride. The gem is made entirely of diamonds and is made in the Greek style.


There is another, richer tiara, which she received from her mother, the Grand Duchess Anastasia!"

Set with three circular-cut diamonds framed with stylised laurels within an arched surround of lattice work design joined with rose diamond quatrefoils, central circular motif detachable. Designed by Carl Faberge as an openwork design, heightened with tiny, rose diamond flowers, it is inspired by the Crown made for Catherine the Great of Russia by Jacob and Jean Francois Andre Duval in 1801.


This work of art of unrivaled provenance will be offered at auction for the first time ever in Geneva sale on May 14 2019 at Sotheby's for CHF 200,000 — 300,000. The FABERGE Tiara was sold for Faberge tiara sold for CHF 437,500.

Fabergé was Cecilie's mother's (Grand Duchess Anastasia Mikhailovna of Russia) favourite jeweller and correspondence between the jeweller and herself, mentioning a diamond tiara, exists. The tiara was also featured in various newspaper articles dated from January until March 1906, reporting from the exhibition held in the Museum Berlin. 

Cecilie, whose official title was Crown Princess of the German Reich and Prussia, was tall and statuesque, and became popular in Germany for her sense of style. She quickly became one of the most beloved members of the German Imperial House. She was known for her elegance and fashion consciousness. It was not long before her fashion style was copied by many women throughout the German Empire.

The "Kronprinzenhochzeit" was the biggest social event of the still young century, when on 6th June 1905, Duchess Cecilie of Mecklenburg-Schwerin married Wilhelm the heir to the Prussian throne. Tens of thousands of people had poured into the lavishly decorated capital of the Empire Berlin, to witness the arrival of the bride of the Crown Prince.

Cecilie was born on 20th September 1886, as the youngest daughter of Friedrich Franz III, Grand Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin and Grand Duchess Anastasia Mikhailovna of Russia. The family used to spend the summers in Mecklenburg and the rest of the year in the south of France.

After the death of the Grand Duke, the Grand Duchess Anastasia did not feel the need to spend time in Mecklenburg anymore, so she and her children spent several months a year in her home country Russia instead. This intensified Cecilie's bond to the Romanovs.

It was during the wedding of her brother Friedrich Franz IV in 1904 that Cecilie met her future husband Crown Prince Wilhelm. Wilhelm was immediately overwhelmed by her beauty, the jet-black hair, the impressive dark eyes, her flawless skin and her slim figure.

In 1905 the young couple celebrated their wedding. The extravagant celebrations spanned over four days and were filled with countless commitments and appointments. 
The handover of the wedding gifts to the royal bridal couple took place in the "Brunswick Gallery" of the Berlin castle.

The Faberge Diamond Tiara was worn by Princess Cecilie of Prussia, the daughter of the couple, when, in 1949, she married Mr Clyde Harris, an American who was one of the famous "Monument Men".
