Victoria Melita Feodorovna, Princess of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, Grand Duchess of Russia, who in 1894 married Ernst Ludwig of Hesse, (divorced 1900) and in 1905 married the Grand Duke Cyril Vladimirovitch of Russia.

Her second husband presented her some outstanding jewels, but this magnificent sapphire and diamond parure with elements of the "Thistle of Scotland" , the "Rose of England" and the "Irish Shamrock", as diamond stylised three leaf trefoils, was a heirloom of her mother Grand Duchess Maria Alexandrovna, the Duchess of Saxe-Coburg.

She received this parure (tiara, necklace, large stomacher), with the symbolic ornaments of the United Kingdom, from her father, Tsar Alexander II. on the occasion of her wedding with the son of Queen Victoria, the Duke of Edinburgh.

The tsar was not fond of this wedding, but, having originally opposed the betrothal, the Tsar now accepted it with good grace. He showered some of the finest Romanov jewellery on her, including sapphires left to him by his mother, as well as a collection comprising the necklace, earrings, bracelets and brooches once owned by Catherine the Great and bequeathed to her daughter-in-law.

As the wife of Grand Duke Cyril, eldest son of Grand Duchess Wladimir, her fortune was limited to her jewelry after fleeing Russia. At that time the European market was inundated with precious stones from Germany, Russia and Austria and anyone wishing to sell their jewellery rarely obtained a fair price, she sold this necklace with the two part stomacher, with a large triangle diamond as pendant to the clover, after the revolution to Cartier, Paris.
Above in the picture, the Grand Duchess wore the sapphire and diamond necklace and the sapphire diamond stomacher and a matching tiara with diamonds and sapphires, the sapphire tiara was on display in Coburg, the whereabouts of which is unknown.


Victoria Melita, Princess of Great Britain and Ireland, of Edinburgh, and of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, was the daughter of Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh, the second eldest son of Queen Victoria.
