Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna, Princess of Sweden, was famous for her precious jewellery which was part of her bridal trousseau. She had a diamond and pearl diadem in Louis XVI style made using three Oriental pearls which were part of her Imperial legacy. The newspapers of the time reported about the new piece of jewelry.
On the right is a sketch of a tiara with three pearls and a bow in the center, designed by the Swedish court jeweller Hallberg. It was discussed in Svenska Dagbladet No. 122 in 1910:
The pearls are family pieces that belonged to the relatives of the princess. They are big as hazel nuts and each represents very high value. The tiara is made in the style of Louis XVI from a drawing made by Hallberg. The tiara can in few minutes be transformed into a grand brooch. The princess has expressed her satisfaction with the craftsmanship and one can say without exaggeration that it is a fine example of the artistry our domestic jewelers can perform.

Princess Maria's New Diadem
Princess Maria excels as we know in costly and tasteful jewels. She has lately ordered a new priceless tiara from court jeweller Hallberg that is now finished. The jewel is indeed splendid and is in the style of Louis XVI. It is composed of 900 diamonds of more than 50 carat where over 160 are brilliants and 777 are rose-cut, and three huge, oriental pearls.
The three pearls, which are worth a small fortune, have previously been on a part of family pieces the princess brought from Russia. The jewels/pearls are set in gold and platinum and made in such a way that the tiara can be taken apart and made into a magnificent brooch with the three pearls. The splendid jewel represents several 10 000`s of crowns and is currently exhibited in Hallberg's at a prominent address on the corner of Drottning- and Fredsgatorna.
It is not known what happened to this jewel, but Princess Maria sold most of her jewels after the Russian Revolution. Princess Ingeborg of Sweden owns a delicate diamond tiara, without any decorations, made by Boucheron. In later years she wore it together with 3 very large pearls in a diamond cluster >>
