Smaragd Schmuck der Grossfürstin Maria Pavlovna|Romanov Juwelen

Die Großherzogin Vladimir, Maria Pawlowna, in einem Boyaren- Kostüm anlässlich eines Kostümballs, den rechteckigen Smaragd von 107.72 Karats in einer Brosche gefasst trägt sie mitten auf ihrer Brust, dieses unvergleichliche Schmuckstück erhielt sie anlässlich ihrer Hochzeit vom Zar Alexander II, dem Bruder ihres Mannes und stammt aus der Sammlung von Zarin Katharina der Großen.

Der Stein war angeblich, der zweitschönste existierende große Smaragd auf der Welt , übertroffen nur im Gewicht, durch einen anderen Smaragd, ebenfalls aus dem Besitz Katherina der Grossen.

Ihr Sohn Grossfürst Boris, der alle ihre Smaragde und ihren gesamten Smaragd-Schmuck erhielt, verkaufte diesen Smaragd, nach dem Tod seiner Mutter 1927 an Cartier.
Raphael Esmerian, der Händler und Edelsteinkenner NewYorks und Pierre Cartier fassten 1947 den Smaragd als Anhänger, passend zu einem Collier, das Esmerian von der Familie Payne Whitney ( oben im Bild linke Seite) aus Smaragden mit Brillanten gekauft hatte.

Auf Empfehlung Esmerian`s stimmte 1954 Cartier zu, den Smaragd in eine Birnenform umzuschleifen, um einen natürlichen Fehler im Stein zu entfernen.
Rechts oben im Bild dann der Smaragd mit 75.63zusammen mit dem Collier, dem ein quadratischer Smaragd hinzugefügt wurde zur Verlängerung.

John D. Rockefeller Jr kaufte das Collier von Cartier im gleichen Jahr.

Nun ist der Romanov Smaragd wieder am Markt aufgetaucht und wird im May 2019 von Christies in Genf versteigert.

 


The Grand Duchess Vladimir in a native Boyar costume, wearing her rectangular emerald of 107,72 carats in a brooch on her breast, formerly in the collection of Empress Catherine the Great, which she received as a wedding present from Tsar Alexander II.
The stone was reputed to be the second most beautiful large emerald in the world, surpassed only in weight by another emerald owned by Catherine the Great.
Grand Duke Boris, her son, who got all her emerald jewels, sold this emerald, upon his mother`s death, to Cartier in 1927.

Raphael Esmerian, the New York lapidary and dealer and Pierre Cartier agreed to re-mount the emerald as a pendant to a necklace in 1947, to a necklace that Esmerian had purchased from the Payne Whitney family (above, left side)
In 1954 on Esmerian`s recommandation, Cartier consented to have him recut the emerald into a pear shape to remove a natural flaw in the stone. Above right, the stone ended at 75,63 carats and was restored to the necklace which had been made larger with the addition of another square emerald.

John D. Rockefeller Jr bought the necklace from Cartier in the same year.

In 2019 the new owner of the necklace with the 75,63ct Romanov Emerald, the wedding gift from Tsar Alexander II decided to sell it a few months ago he took it to Christie’s.
The experts did not recognise the legendary stone immediately as it was very different from the original one. It is only after the catalogue was completed that they found the truth. An addition to the original catalogue with the whole history of the stone are made again. The legendary emerald brooch of grand duchess Wladimir has been found, Christies offered it on auction in Geneve 2019.

 

 


About the Grand-Duchess........BERLIN, September 3 1900. A serious quarrel has broken out between the Czar and his aunt, the Grand Duchess of Vladimir, which has had the result of causing her husband, the Grand Duke, to tender the resignation of his office as Commander of the Metropolitan Military District of St. Petersburg and of the Imperial Guard.

The trouble, which has not only set all Russian society by the ears, but has also perturbed several courts, including that of Emperor William, is due to a question of baccarat and roulette. Last spring the Czar, alarmed by the extraordinary increase of the scandals at court, in society and in the army due to high play, issued an edict strictly forbidding baccarat or roulette.

This ukase followed almost immediately the startling discovery made by Nicholas that the chapter of one of the principal churches of the metropolis had pawned the church plate and jeweled icons to pay gambling debts contracted at baccarat and roulette.

By the army and clergy the Emperor's commands have been obeyed, and baccarat has stopped at the Yacht and other leading clubs. But society has treated the imperial edict with something very much akin to derision, and this is largely owing to the attitude adopted by the Grand Duchess Vladimir.

The latter is a German Princess by birth, and the only foreign woman who has declined to change the faith in which she was reared for that of her husband on marriage. The Grand Duchess is passionately addicted to gambling. To her is due the introduction of the roulette table as an article of furniture in the saloons of most of the palaces an mansions of St. Petersburg, and the edict of her nephew in no way modified her openly proclaimed determination to visit no house and to attend no entertainment where roulette and baccarat were not provided for her amusement. As the Grand Duchess is the most dashing member of the imperial family and the acknowledged leader of St. Petersburg society, from which the Czar and Czarina hold wholly aloof, the great world of the Russian Capital has ignored the ukase of the Emperor and taken the cue from his aunt.

On discovering the manner in which his orders were defied and the part which the Grand Duchess has played in the matter, the Czar intimated to her that unless she set an example of obedience to his behest he would reluctantly be compelled to visit her with a public token of his displeasure by banishing her for a time from court and depriving her of the use of the imperial liveries and of imperial honors.
