Christie's will be auctioning a royal tiara at the Magnificent Jewels sale on 15 May in Geneva. The tiara was once owned by the German royal family, to be precise, the Princess Alexandra of Hanover and Cumberland.

Wedding gift

The Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin commissioned the creation and chose Faberg? on the recommendation of his mother. The Grand Duke's mother, Grand Duchess Anastasia Mikhailovna of Russia was a keen collector of Faberg?. However, the creation was not completed in time for the big day due to lack of communication.
