The Empress is wearing a dark embroidered dress accented with a pearl necklace and a large oval sapphire cabochon brooch with four diamonds, in 1911, when she visited Hvidöre, a villa outside Copenhagen. The villa was bought by the sisters, the Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna and Queen Alexandra, after their father's death in 1906.
It is well known fact that Empress Maria Feodorovna (mother of the last Russian Emperor Nicholas II) loved jewelry very much, and her personal collection together with Russian Crown Jewels allowed her never to repeat herself with the choice of brooches, necklaces etc.
This item was offered after her death by her daughter Grand Duchess Xenia and is probably item No. 45. large brooch with cabochon sapphire & 4 diamonds valued at £2000-3000 and sold in 1929 for £2850 on the list of the Dowager Empress' jewels prepared by Hennell.
