Re: Prussian Diamond Scroll Tiara
A beautiful Tiara, the stones are luscious.
To mark the centenary of the Death of Empress Auguste Viktoria of Germany, I published an article on the Prussian Diamond Scroll Tiara, HERE , which was often worn by the Empress, and according to the 1913 book on the Jewels of House of Hohenzollern (from my nonexistent understanding of German), the diamonds in the Tiara were old family heirlooms!
I find it really odd how so little is known about the Prussian Royal Jewels before Crown Princess Cecilie and what became of them after the fall of the monarchy! This Tiara was not the most attractive piece but it would be interesting to know where it is today!
