This tiara was redesigned over the years. The image above is very simple, but the images seveal posts back of the current wearer shows a much taller version.

Don't think they were Hohenzollern jewels but Hesse Kassel jewels that belonged to a former Princess of Prussia (Mossy).

But didn't they originate with Margaret's mother and grandmother? Either way, we do have a thread dealing with the Hesse-Kassel jewels and their theft.

http://forum.alexanderpalace.org/index.php?topic=1117.0

Also a lot of good info & photos in Margaret's thread. The photo posted by KF is part of an article Life magazine did (or the same image was at least included) which had a number of photos on the case.

Not much at all. WII, in spite of all good intensions, did not like Mossy's closer relationship to his mother.

I think Willy gave Moretta a diamond tiara and other people like Irene & Heinrich gave jewelry too (not to mention Vicky). I think Mossy must have at least recieve some jewelry from her brothers and Vicky too...

Margaret did receive jewels from her family AND Her mother had plenty to distribute as she had inherited the personal gems of her husbands aunt the last Queen of Prussia.Indeed when Victoria married Adolf of S-L she gave her a tiara and complete suite of diamonds,sapphires and pearls.

Didn't know how much Vicky received from Queen Elise, since she also left plenty to her own sister Duchess Ludovika (yes ! Mother of Sisi !). Also because of that Empress Augusta left Vicky nothing in her will and her jewels went directly to Dona. Vicky was deeply hurt as none of her daughters received as much as a ring from the vicious grandmother's legacy (she wrote about that to her mother). From the letters to Sophie, Vicky also wrote that she had not many jewels left and said she might had to wait for her to die to inherit more from her.

It is sad to see such a treasure leaves the family. It is such a national treasure with rich history that I hope some government buys it and put it on display in a museum than some Russian millionaire or Arab sheik who would put it in a vault and hidden...

Maybe the Hohenzollern Fund is running low ? Never did know how much or how it is being run. This is a real mystery.
