Imperial Regalia of Russia
« on: March 20, 2006, 12:54:34 PM »
I should like to know if all the Imperial Crowns of the Russian Empresses survive in Moscow?  I know that the nuptial crown is at Hillwood in Washington, but I have wondered if the ceremonial crowns worn last by the Dowager Empress and by Empress Alexandra are still extant in Russia.

Do you mean this one?

This crown is still in Russia, along with some other regalia.
