Empress Sissi's cross (I wonder if it was made with rubies)

Knew about the tiara but not about the necklace. Is it part of MV's wedding gifts ? Thanks for posting.

I think the necklace was a gift from Emperor Franz Joseph.

Mourning jewels:


And I found this labeled as an AustrianTiara. But I can't say who it belonged to:

The last one belonged to Maria Annunziata "miana" daughter of  Karl Ludwig and Maria Theresia of bragance. Now is in the hohenberg family and Marie Therese von hohenberg used it in her wedding

The diamond & emerald jewels are redone as copies and could be bought in the Austrian Museum Shop in Vienna. Alas ! Only glass...

I saw them when I visited Vienna. I bought Marie Valerie's brooch for my mother and a few diamond stars. All copies from the Museum shop. Saw the emerald reproductions but think they look too art deco for Sisi. Anyway they are not cheap.

They are not my favourites, either.
Another set from the KHM which is a replique of Elisabeth's set. My favourite one. But again - really expensive.
