Re: Lady Greville wearing a Kokoshnik tiara at - post by British royal jewels
Very interesting Franck, their is a similarity in the jewels worn by Lady Charles Greville to the emerald and diamond tiara and necklace we have seen debuted by Princess Eugene and the necklace by her grandmother the Queen.
However the tiara if it is the same must have been tinkered with as the one seen here is larger than the one worn by Princess Eugene and the centre stone seems to also be differently shaped.
I am given to believe that the Greville's were very wealthy people so it is also possible that Lady Charles Greville may have had her own jewels via Lord Charles and did not have to bother her sister in law to borrow her jewels. Margaret Greville often changed up her jewels though,so it's either one or the other scenarios I would have mentioned above.
The Instagram site British royal jewels has posted a very significant photo of Lady Greville (Lord Charles Greville was the younger brother of Ronald Greville, husband of Margaret Greville) wearing a a kokoshnik tiara at the State opening of Parliament .
I was struck by the resemblance between the tiara worn by Lady Greville at the State Opening and the Emerald kokoshnik and the emerald necklace ? owned by her sister in law Margaret Greville.
What do you think ?
Very best regards,
