Numerous European royals are pictured in this group portrait from King Christian X of Denmark’s silver jubilee in 1937. Can you identify the royal ladies and some of the jewels that they’re wearing? (Here’s a much larger version of the same portrait to help in your detective work!)
Jewel Detective: Diana, Princess of Wales
Can you identify the jewels worn here by Princess Diana in February 1992?
Jewel Detective: Grand Duchess Maria Alexandrovna
If you watched last night’s episode of Downton Abbey here in the States, you undoubtedly caught a reference to the 1874 wedding of Prince Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh (and later Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha) and Grand Duchess Maria Alexandrovna of Russia. Can you identify the jewels worn by Maria here, ca. 1880?
