Made in 1890 for Grand Duchess Vladimir, aunt of the last Russian Tsar Nicholas II, the Vladimir tiara was smuggled out of Russia during the Revolution by a British diplomat. In 1921 it was sold by the Grand Duchess’s daughter, Princess Nicholas of Greece, to Queen Mary who adapted the tiara to take fifteen of the celebrated Cambridge emeralds as an alternative to the original pearls.  Queen Elizabeth II inherited the tiara in 1953, & has worn it with both the pearls and the emeralds.
