Aus dem Juwelen-Album der Großfürstin Xenia Alexandrowna ....

Wahrhafte Juwelen im Romanov Stil, mit grossen Steinen und einer Fülle an Dekoration, beeinflusst vom französischen Neoklassizismus, mit verschlungenen Bändern und Lilien geschmückt, reich und kompliziert, erhielt die Großfürstin anlässlich ihrer Hochzeit mit Großfürst Alexander am 6. August 1894 , "From Papa and Mama on the wedding" beschriftet, oben abgebildet das delikate Diamant-Briolettes Diadem, mit ca 35 facettierten Diamant-Pampeln ,unzähligen Diamanttropfen und Brillanten und 2 herrlichen Diamant Revieres ( Colliers), das heisst rund geschliffene Diamanten in enormer Grösse in Fassungen als Linie verlaufend.
"Papa" und "Mama" waren Zar Alexander III. und seine Gattin Maria Fjodeorowna, sie überreichten der Braut weiterhin eine aussergewöhnlich grosse Diamant Brosche mit 3 hängenden DiamantTropfen.

Die Diamant Fringe- Tiara war ein Geschenk ihres Mannes Sandro ...."From Sandro on the wedding" ist ihre eigenhändige Skizze beschriftet, diese Tiara trug sie auch als Halsband, auf dem Bild des Maskenballs schmückt sie ihr Decollete, im Bild oben als Kokoschnik auf ihrem Haupt.

Jewels of the Grand Duchess Xenia Alexandrowna

Above is some of the jewellery produced for the wedding of TIH Grand Duke Alexander Mihailovich and Grand Duchess Xenia Alexandrovna in 1894. A wonderful diamond briolette diadem made by Bolin, a diamond cluster brooch and two very large diamond riviere necklaces also made by Bolin were wedding presents from her parents. The invoice for these items is still in the archive.

The diamond fringe tiara was from her husband Sandro. She wore it as a tiara, like in the picture above(in court dress), or as a necklace as seen in the famous photo from the last costume ball held at the Winter Palace in February 1903.

Xenia was resplendent in the costume of a „boyarina“, richly embroidered and covered with glittering jewels; her halo-shaped headdress sparkled with emeralds and diamonds, and she carried an ostrich feather fan with a handle of pink enamel, rock crystal and diamonds made by Fabergé. Sandro himself was attired as a court falconer, in white and gold long coat, with golden eagles embroidered on the front and back, a pink silk shirt, blue silk trousers and yellow leather boots.Some details of the jewels from the picture above:

3 chokers - of large diamonds ( 2 of this are wedding gifts of her parents)

a diamond "fringe" necklace - tiara (wedding gift of Sandro)

her emerald necklace and parure (wedding gift of her parents, the emerald-drops displayed on the head-dress)

a series of diamond spirals parts of the ruby-parure and diadem (like a coronet), turned upside-down and pinned to that cape/collar/mini-shawl thing she has goin' on there

a fringe attached to the pearl net on her head, with pearl-dops....that appears to be a necklace of diamonds & pearls
her ruby-parure as large necklace, also present of her parents.

a series of brooches with gems, diamonds and pearls as buttons on the front of her gown..
