Jewels worn by Queen Alexandra in 1922, at the wedding of Princess Nina Georgievna of Russia.
Many Royal Guests at London Wedding. Like a list from the now defunct Almanach de Gotha ran the names of the several dozen Royal guests from the Houses of Russia and Greece who attended the religious marriage yesterday afternoon of Princess Nina of Russia and Prince Paul Chavehavadze, the civil ceremony having taken place some days ago before the Registrar. St. Philip's Church, in the Buckingham Palace' Road, which was converted into a Russian church during the war, was chosen for the service, which was attended by Queen Alexandra, Queen Olga of Greece, and Princess Victoria.
Queen Alexandra, who was loudly cheered as she alighted from her car, was a charmingly graceful figure in purple velvet, with panels of rich gold embroidery, and she wore wonderful emeralds at the throat and on her corsage.
See above the picture of Queen Alexandra of Great Britain and Ireland from this event. We could note a large emerald brooch on her throat, which brooch could this be?
It was realy rare to see her with emeralds.
The design of the brooch, looks like similar to the emerald brooch which was presented by Queen Victoria of England to her daughter the Princess Louise, Duchess of Argyll.
Probably there are some more of these emerald brooches in the British royal family.
