Ruby Diamond Star | Imperial Royal Jewelry | Duchess of Connaught

Rubin Diamant Stern | Romanov Preussen |Königlicher Schmuck von Luise Margarete Prinzessin von Preussen, Herzogin von Connaught>>

When Prince Arthur, son of Queen Victoria, Duke of Connaught saw the original portrait of his bride, in November 1878 he wrote to  Queen Victoria to describe it:
‘It is really lovely, so like and yet so pretty and natural – She is taken three quarters face in a low gown of a creamy colour, her hair quite plain, my locket round her neck on a thin gold chain(probably his engagement gift), and that ruby and diamond star left her by her Grandmama* on her breast…

Which grandmother of Princess Luise Margarethe of Prussia, Duchess of Connaught, left her the large star brooch with ruby?

We know both of the Grandmamas……
