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 tiara is a Fabergé aquamarine headpiece that was created as a wedding gift in 1904. The Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin commissioned the creation and chose Fabergé on the recommendation of his mother. The Grand Duke’s mother, Grand Duchess Anastasia Mikhailovna of Russia was a keen collector of Fabergé. However, the creation was not completed in time for the big day due to lack of communication. The princess instead wore the traditional Hanoverian nuptial crown that has been in her family for more than a century.

The Tiara details

The tiara features “forget-me-not” flowers tied with ribbon bows that signify true and eternal love. While cupid’s arrows symbolize the endearment, attraction, and affection. In addition, the tiara features nine graduated pear-shaped aquamarines, old cushion and rose cut diamonds.
