  1. Did her daughter, Princess Tatiana, inherit that seriously impressive necklace? It looks like the stones may be emeralds, but I’m not sure. And whatever happened to her tiara? Was it yet another victim of inheritance taxation?

    1. The Tiara is the subject of a future article (for Princess Tatiana’s birthday in August) and I’m not sure of it’s fate. The impressive necklace (sapphires) was inherited by her youngest son, and unfortunately sold at Sotheby’s in 2010!

  2. Oh! I’m sorry to hear about the sale of the necklace. But then again, I suspected as much, death duties being what they are. 🙁

  3. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!|

  4. This information is magnificent. I understand and respect your clear-cut points. I am impressed with your writing style and how well you express your thoughts.

  5. Hey There. I found your blog using msn. This is an extremely well written article. I’ll be sure to bookmark it and return to read more of your useful info. Thanks for the post. I’ll definitely comeback.
