I don't know. A lot of jewels have been given to Anne over the years, but the Queen also lends pieces to her family at times.

Well, thank you. Perhaps she was using it just for a moment. Do anyone know what happened with
the real or original necklace that belonged to the Tsarina? Or do you know if it belonged to anyone else
before it belonged to Marie Feodorovna?

The Pearl choker with sapphire clasp was owned by empress Maria. it could be converted into two bracelets. after MF's death 1928 it was bought by queen mary (as written x-times in other threats) and later inherit by queen elizabeth II. (she wore it as choker and bracelet)..later she lent it to her daughter Anne (I suppose for lifetime - like other items from the Queens Collection to other members of the RF).

some items were left by the GDs for sentimental ground.
some return because they couldn't be sold,
and some were sold.
I remember that there was some where a sugesstion who bought also some items, but forgot where I read it.

this pieces more or less all-day-jewels and no "grand pieces". MF was in Kiev in 1917 and went direct to the Crimea. I never heard or read that some one offered her to do a job like Stopford (smuggled out GD Vladimirs jewels).
and also the valuation shows that there was no real importend piece under this items.

there is another list of items of pieces from the imperial collection which where found in her appartement in Anitchkov. I think all this and other private things went the way of most imperial jewels. packed and sent to Moskov and later sold, broken into pieces for sellings only the precious stones, smellting  the gold and platinum settings.

Well...I read the box contained "ropes & roples of pearls" and precious stones and large as cherries". That did not appear in the RF's collections...

I read this also.
but those are the items. and I think the list is proofed.
maybe the "ropes of pearls" were sold otherwise. and of course some pearls and precious stones are listed.
and for me the size of the saphire - pearl drop brooch has a large size

here QM wore the pendant brooch


and HM wore the russian brooch
