Ducky's tiara was sold to Missy and then passed to Helen (where the Romanian Royal Family still has it). What about the sumsous necklace she is wearing here in the photo. Was it also sold ?

I really don't know the history of the necklace, but here is a picture of it I have in my files

Think they are sapphires and a tiara is included in the set. Don't know what happen to it.

VM's magnificent sapphire and diamond parure was a heirloom of her mother Grand Duchess Maria Alexandrovna, the Duchess of Saxe-Coburg. If you look closely, you can see the symbolic elements of the "Thistle of Scotland" , the "Rose of England" and the "Irish Shamrock",in diamonds. Marie had received a whole set--tiara, necklace, stomacher (with a large triangle diamond as pendant to the clover) as a wedding gift from her father, AII. VM sold the necklace, with the 2 part stomacher, after the Revolution to Cartier, Paris. The tiara's whereabouts are unknown.

I know it's not that one but this tiara looks almost the same as Romanian one if you exclude frame...

Isn't it the same? Queen Marie bought VM's Greek key tiara as a wedding present for Princess Helen when she married Prince Carol. I believe this is the tiara--come down to Helen's granddaughter.

What a beautiful photo of Kyra. It is odd though to play piano with a tiara on. But I know her mother Ducky also loved playing the piano too. I wonder if her eldesr sister Maria also loved music ?

Lovely postcard. Royalty today do not pose with their children wearing their best jewels.

No, they don't as much. The images of royalty, particularly in the Scandinavian countries, I've read, have become much more ordinary and like the rest of the people. That's a big contrast to Imperial Russia where the image of the splendor of the Czars was important. Victoria Melita is wearing very heavy jewels here. Also, less is more seems to be the opinion of jewelry in the modern era, whereas around the turn of the 19th century, especially in royal circles jewels where worn in profusion.

Ducky looked very worn out and sad...she had a suffering face.  :(
