Yes. Both rich women who helped their poorer relatives from the Greek Royal Houses.

Queen Anne Marie was very beautiful and she wore her jewels very well, as a true queen:

-Do you know this diadem?





-With the emerald parure:

The small diadem came to Anne Marie from her parents and was originally a stomacher which was adapted.In recent times it has been seen on the heads of her daughter in law AND younger daughter....who knows it might be the new Princess nicholas wearing it next!

On one of the jewel boards (because of the recent wedding) there was info on this diadem. It was made from 3 brooches (belonging to Queen Alexandrine and left to  Queen Ingrid), I believe--probably connected into a stomacher as Ashdean posted. It was converted to the diadem known as the Floral Brooch Tiara as present from Ingrid to Queen Anne-Marie. This, at least, according to the royal forums. The tiara was also worn by Princess Marie-Chantal at her wedding.

Is it the one that Princess Theodora wore to Prince Joachim of Denmark's 2nd wedding?

Actually although I think the stomacher that this tiara became originated with Queen Alexandrine...the tiara which was made with 3 brooches (the centre on having a interchangable  centre stone ie diamond,emerald,pearl) was actually another inheritance from Alexandrine which Fredrik and Ingrid converted and passed on to their daughter Benedikte and was worn last week by HER daughter Alexandra in Stockholm.

Thank you very much, Ashdean. I couldn't see the original posting of the tiara in great detail and assumed they were one and the same.

I know that the famous cabochon emeralds that leave many of us drooling, are said to have come into the Greek Royal Family via Queen Olga, but I am wondering whether or not some gems that look very much like emeralds belonging to Grand Duchess Alexandra Petrovna may not have found there way into the Greek jewel vaults at some stage. Here is a link to a picture of Alexandra Petrovna in her lovely jewels which I am assuming were emerald rather than sapphires or rubies!

They do look so very similar to some of the famous Greek emeralds! If they are not part of the Greek horde, does anyone know what happened to Alexandra Petrovna's fabulous collection and in particular the wonderful gems she is wearing the above photograph?

Hi Margot,

Those jewels do look very like Queen Olga's emeralds...
I can only guess that if they are, then they came to Olga as a wedding gift from Alexandra.

Didn't Alexandra become a nun?  So, maybe she didn't have any more use for emeralds!!!

The taira made out of three brooches is a simlar one belonging to Anne-Marie's sister Pricness Benedikte. This one was originally a stomacher who belonged to Queen Victoria of Sweden and was inherited by Queen Anne-Marie.
