Jewels and Diamonds of the Grand Duchess Olga Feodorovna of Russia
The jewel album Grand Duchess Olga Feodorovna.
A virtual glimpse by Uwe Ripka
The barely seventeen-year-old Princess Cecilia of Baden (1839-1891) married on August 16, 1857 the Grand Duke Mikhail Nikolayevich Romanov (1832-1909), the youngest son of Tsar Nicholas I and Tsarina Alexandra Feodorovna.
Prior to marrying, it was necessary for Cecilia to accept the Russian Orthodox faith.
So she was baptized on August 15, 1857 in a ceremony being given the name Olga Feodorovna Ольга Фёдоровна.
The first important jewels were traditionally presented on this occasion.
She completed her jewels one day later, on the day of the wedding.
The majority was, however, given as a dowry the morning after the wedding.
Here she received, among other things, a large sapphire set from Tsar Alexander II.
After her death, it was lleft to her son Grand Duke Alexander Mihailovich which presented it to his bride Grand Duchess Xenia Alexandrovna in 1894, as a wedding gift.
In an album. almost all jewellery owned by Olga Feodorovna with drawings and partially detailed notes are provided.
