Tsesarevich Alexei

' He had what we Russians usually call ’ a golden heart’. He easily felt an attachment to people, he liked them and tried to do his best to help them, especially when it seemed to him that someone was unjustly hurt. His love, like that of his parents, was based mainly on pity. Tsesarevich Alexei Nikolaevich was an awfully lazy, but very capable boy ( I think, he was lazy precisely because he was capable), he easily grasped everything, he was thoughtful and keen beyond his years… Despite his good nature and compassion, he undoubtedly promised to possess a firm and independent character in the future.’  Colonal Mordvinov

memory-of-the-romanovs:

Diamond kokoshnik of the Russian Empire.

Traditional kokoshnik was made of birch bark (later of cardboard), trimmed with expensive cloth (brocade, satin), then lavishly decorated with pearls and precious stones. This technology is not quite suited for the XVIII century, and the kind of headdress is not very in harmony with the dresses of the time. And kokoshnik turned into a tiara-kokoshnik or as it was called in Europe, the tiara in the Russian style.

Left to right.

  • Great collier russe (Russian necklaces), presumably dating from the beginning of the XIX century. Indian and Brazilian diamonds, mounted in gold and silver. Necklace can also be worn as a tiare russe - tiara sewn on velvet kokoshnik. All outstanding beam suspension are numbered from 1 to 59 and have hooks on the back side.
  • Tiara, the form of Russian kokoshnik, created at the beginning of the XIX century. Tiara originally belonged to Empress Elizabeth A., wife of Alexander I. Tiara showered old Brazilian diamonds total weight of 275 carats of old, rimmed in gold and silver.
  • Wedding gift for the daughter of Alexander II - luxury diamond tiare russe (Russian tiara). This tiara inherited the daughter of Maria Alexandrovna, the Romanian queen Maria.
  • In 1825, the Russian Emperor Nicholas I gave the tiara with sapphires his wife Alexandra Fyodorovna in honor of their accession to the Russian throne.
  • Diamond kokoshnik ordered Cartier Grand Duke Vladimir Alexandrovich a gift to his daughter Elena (1882-1957) on the occasion of her marriage to Prince Nicholas of Greece in 1902.
  • Kokoshnik with drop-shaped diamonds and pearls, made the court jeweler Bolin in 1841 and found in the chambers of the Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna. In the diamond arches suspended 25 pearls.
  • Emerald diamond kokoshnik made ​​to the court jeweler Bolin for Grand Duchess Elizabeth Feodorovna. Kokoshnik parure was a member of the emeralds that Elizabeth Feodorovna received as a gift for the wedding. Earlier this parure belonged to the mother of Grand Duke Sergei Alexandrovich Empress Marie Alexandrovna . Court jeweler Bolin made ​​this kokoshnik-tiara of gold and silver with seven cabochon emeralds, framed by elegant diamond weave . These emeralds are inserted into another tiara-kokoshnik.
  • Tiara with sapphire cabochon, Empress Maria Alexandrovna.

ROYAL JEWELLERY || The Rosenborg Kokoshnik Tiara

Made in the 1930’s by the Danish jeweller Dragsted, The Rosenborg Kokoshnik Tiara was acquired by Prince Viggo, Count of Rosenborg for his American-born wife, Princess Viggo. As the couple didn’t have any children, the tiara was inherited by Prince and Princess Viggo’s sister-in-law, Princess Margaretha, who in return passed it on to her daughter-in-law, Countess Ruth of Rosenborg. Following her death, it was put on an auction at Bukowskis where the estimated value was placed at more than $200.000 but it did not sell. It is modelled after the traditional Russian headdress, the kokoshnik (hence the name), and consists of garnets and diamonds.
