I have that one from an old magazine article about her needlework society. It's a favorite. I love the tiara.  :)

The tiara reminds me of the one that Empress Alexandra wore in the photo of her in the Nicholas and Alexandra by Robert K. Massie book, where she is wearing a a diamond and pearl tiara with hanging pearls, in a almost sideways pose- anyone know what photo I'm refering to?

Yes. That tiara was part of the crown jewels.

Is this a different tiara or the same one?

Well...It is doubtful with the what if ? However Miechen was as out of touch with the common people as Nicholas II...

Yes...although it was the emerald placks (later sold to Barbara Hutton as a tiara) that was the central piece.

The emeralds went to Boris. Here's something Martyn had written on the Duchess of Windsor's thread:

"Barbara Hutton's emeralds may have once belonged to Catherine the Great, but their more direct provenance was from the superb emerald parure of GDss Vladimir and was made for her by Cartier in 1947.  Interestingly , Wallis's tiara was also made by Cartier, but in 1949, but the difference in style of the two pieces could not be more marked.  Wallis's contemporary jewel fits very much with her style and personality; Geoffrey Munn asserts that Wallis did not care too much for head ornaments anyway.  Hutton's tiara, although it has a contemporary feel to it, is very much more in the tradition of grand jewellery and is a fit setting for the stones form Miechen's fabulous parure.  Interestingly, Liz Taylor also owns pieces set with stones from this parure; I think that she has the necklace and a brooch.........."
