♔ TIARAS OF THE ROMANOVS ♔
Maria Feodorovna’s Cartier Pearl Wave Tiara & Necklace
Of Empress Maria Feodorovna’s massive jewel collection, this is one of my favourites. Very commonly misidentified as a convertible tiara, this piece is in fact two separate pieces, including a matching brooch. The ‘wave’ pattern of the tiara compliments the ‘bow’ figures on the necklace, with 19 of the purest pearls used in each piece.
There is scant information available on this piece as it too was among the Bolshevik horde later sold off and/or dismantled.
