Re: Empress Alexandra's aquamarine tiara
This is one of those perennial mysteries. Thank you for the links MarcA.
I know very little about the Russian jewels; however, I am fairly certain that what was set out on a table and photographed were jewels which officially belonged to the state, not personally owned jewels. Some of those jewels survived intact; others have been re-created and can be seen in the Russian Diamond Fund displays.
