For the ball given at schloss Tegernsee, the evening of her daughter's wedding, duchess Philippe of Wurtemberg, born duchess Marie Caroline "en" et "De" Bavière, was wearing for the first time this fantastic ruby and diamond parure. It was created by Kochert, jeweller to the Habsbourg court in Vienna around 1900, possibly for the wedding of archduchess Maria immaculata of Austria Tuscany (1878-1968) to duke Robert of Wurtemberg (photo number 2). Having had no children, she gave that ruby and diamond set as a wedding present to princess Diane of France, (photo number 2) when she married the future duke of Wurtemberg in 1960. Duchess Robert also had a diamond and turquoises tiara ( photo number 4) who is still kept in the family. Those jewels now belong to duke Philippe of Wurtemberg, third son of the duke and duchess of Wurtemberg. They were worn by his wife for the first time last Saturday evening, on the 20th of September. More in Point De Vue next week and Point De Vue/IDM special jewelry issue on the 16 th of November. #pointdevue #jewelry #royal #wurtemberg

For the ball following the wedding of her niece, duchess Sophie of Wurtemberg to Comte Maximilian d'Andigne, the princess of Waldbourg Zeil, née duchess Mathilde of wurtemberg, wore for the first time the original "Cambridge pearl and diamond tiara". That tiara was bought by her father in law at Christie's in the 1990s. There are at least 4 versions of that tiara. This one was created in Germany for princess Augusta of Hesse Cassel (1797-1889) who married the duke of Cambridge in 1818. She left it to her eldest daughter, Augusta, who became grand duchess of Mecklembourg Strelitz. She, i. Turn, left it to her grand daughter, Jutta, who became crown princess of Montenegro. Princess Jutra died in 1946, :5 years later, her tiara was sold at Christie,s. Another of the duchess of Cambridge grand daughter, queen Mary of England, had the same tiara created for her. It has remained in the British royal family and was worn by the queen, princess Diana, and the current duchess of Cambridge. A third version belongs need the prince Youssoupov. If is now lost, unless it is the fourth version of that tiara worn in the 1920s by the maharani of Patiala. The 5tb version of that tiara is kept in the schatzkammer of the Residenz in Munich.
