Same here, Russia has allot of things to offer, I'd love to go there and learn more someday. And to actually see some things I've seen in pictures (like any Jewels that may be there) in person.

On August 28, 2009, a Swedish public news outlet reported that Romanov family jewelry, found in 2008 in the archives of the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs, was returned. The jewelry was allegedly turned over to the Swedish embassy in St. Petersburg in November 1918 by Duchess Marie of Mecklenburg-Schwerin to keep it safe. The jewelry's worth was estimated to 20 million SEK  (about 2.6 million US dollars).[4]

There are a few photos in the recent book Jewels of the Romanovs.

The items where mainly jeweled boxes & cuff links etc. I thought it was interesting that there where no rings, necklaces, broaches etc and that these where the only items from her huge collection to be deposited. Perhaps these items where all kept together separately in a display cabinet or something and were hastily stuffed into pillow cases and deposited at the Swedish Embassy. The mind boggles!

Some of the proceeds from the sale where to go towards an authorised biography of Grand Duchess Marie apparently.

Most of what was sold were items like the dozens of Faberge cigarette cases, cufflinks and the like. I don't think there were too many pieces of 'jewelry' ala  necklaces and the like. Thread discussing the auction:

Thankyou so much for posting this link. My passion is Russian jewellery and I was sad not to see more of it on display when I visited the Hermitage. I believe the display at the Kremlin is magnificent. I was enthralled to see a picture of the earrings worn by the Tsar's wife at their wedding-enormous bunches of ruby cherries/strawberries? with emerald leaves, so heavy that they have to be suspended from the ear by a wire which hooks over the top. Apparently they are the last piece of jewellery the bride puts on-and presumably the first she takes off!!!

when I remember right the Hermitage dosn't show much jewel items. in the State AAmoury is a showcase for Faberge. some Eastereggs etc. the Earrings (and some really impressive items) and the crowns are in the Diamond found.


the Sweden items have only cigrete cases, cufflinks and so on.

I think Marie Paulovna the younger was the last bride to be married in that finery. Did Grand Duke Konstantin's daughter in law from Serbia got married in that too ? Didn't see her married photos...

Maria Pavlovna was the last bride with all the Romanov bride 'uniform'. Elena of Serbia married a Prince not a Grand Duke, so she had no any finery obliged for the Russian Grand Duchesses.

I think she was the first Imperial Princess of the Romanov family. Wonder what jewels she wore at her wedding ?
