The Beautiful People

Parure 'The Lotos Flowers' and necklace presented to Grand Duchess Maria by her father Alexander II in 1874. Maria was the only daughter in Emperor's family so her parents did everything for her. Maria became The Duchess of Edinburg at the age of 21 and wore these jewels on the coronation of Nikolay II in 1896. After Maria's death her jewels were gained by the sister of HMTQ Elizabeth II's husband. After her death the jewels were sold and disassembled. No doubt, money is more beautiful!
