Jewels and Wedding | Victoria Marchioness of Milford-Haven

Victoria Alberta Elisabeth Mathilde Marie was born on April 15 1863. She was the first child and daughter of Prince Louis of Hesse and by the Rhine (later Grand Duke Louis IV) and Princess Alice of Great Britain, Queen Victoria's second daughter.

From her earliest years, Victoria shown to be quite intelligent; since she was six her mother noticed her extraordinary facility for learning. She was "tomboyish, physically vigourous, endlessly curious, a fanatical reader and her face was more interesting than beautiful".

Victoria married her first cousin once removed Prince Louis of Battenberg on April 30, 1884 at Darmstadt. Queen Victoria attended her granddaughter's wedding, accompanied by her youngest daughter Beatrice, who felt in love and later married one of Louis' younger brothers, Prince Henry of Battenberg.

The Princess, shown on her wedding day, is wearing her bridal-gown and jewels.
Left two diamond pearl head ornaments, the wedding gifts of Queen Victoria to her granddaughter. This must be a part of the later pearl-and diamonds star tiara.

The star tiara pictured above c. 1870, remounted 1937 in England and Gold, silver, diamonds, button pearls.“From the engrailed pavéd diamond circlet rise five five-pointed diamond stars similarly pavéd and centered on a button pearl within a raised border. Made famous by the Empress Elizabeth of Austria, who was painted by F.X. Winterhalter (1865) wearing stars in her hair pinned to a black velvet bandeau, stars sparkling with diamonds have been favoured by women ever since.


These were given to the daughter of Queen Victoria, Princess Louise, Duchess of Argyll to her god-daughter and niece, Princess Victoria of Hesse, and the Marchioness of Milford Haven, married to the First Sea Lord Prince Louise of Battenberg.
She was on a visit to her sister, the Tsarina Alexandra Feodorovna 1914 when war was declared and she had to leave for home in a great hurry. Since the jewels would have been a responsibility, the Tsarina suggested that they should be left behind in her care. As is well known, the revolution of 1917 led to the disappearance of many valuables in Russia, including the Battenberg jewels, which were never seen again. Princess Louise therefore gave Princess Victoria this tiara to replace what had been lost. It then descended to her daughter-in-law, Edwina, future Countess Mountbatten of Burma, who had the stars remounted in a more modern style in the mid-1930s.
She in turn gave the tiara to her daughter Patricia, the present Countess Mountbatten of Burma, as a wedding present upon her marriage to Lord Brabourne in 1946. She wore it to the court all held at Buckingham Palace to celebrate the marriage of the future Queen Elizabeth II with the duke of Edinburgh in 1947, and it has been worn by her daughters and daughters-in-law at their weddings.”
