To me, she's not Alix, thought it does look like her..  
I don't think that those jewels survived the revolution, nearly none did, no matter who they belonged to.  
I am assume that this is the original photo, but scanned?
Because, if you look at her jewelry closely, there is a blue sapphire, and a photo from that era (a sepia photo, no less) would not have any color.  
You can see that the diamonds are the color white and gleaming, also.
This photo has been tampered with.  
Or am I seeing things?

I doubt it's any Romanov.  Probably some noble person, doesn't have to have been Russian, etc.  Definitely is NOT Maria Pavlovna Sr.

Looks like Elena of Montenegro, Queen of Italy to me--even maybe Stana or Militsa of Montenegro, her sisters.

i am still researching this individuals identity i did find some photos online of the montenegro sisters (elena,stana and militsa) very possably one of these ladies (by just looking at facial visage) again any site that i can gain access to and use for research would be greatly appreicated as i am finding some sights have definate clues but are extremely elitist.

When someone finds out who this woman is, do you mind telling me who this is? I was thinking Maria or Anastasia...

I always thought it was Olga since there is another photograph of Olga running around with a camera in the book. Anyone else?
