Löwenstein-Wertheim-Freudenberg Emerald Tiara

Today marks the 60th Birthday of Elisabeth, the Fürstin zu Löwenstein-Wertheim-Freudenberg! The consort of the illustrious House of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Freudenberg, not much is known about the Fürstin, so we are instead highlighting the family’s spectacular Emerald Tiara!

Featuring seven spectacular pear-shaped cabochon emeralds hanging from an ornate diamond frame, this Tiara shares similarities with Tsarina Alexandra Feodorovna’s Pearl Drop Tiara and the Thurn und Taxis Emerald Tiara, and was likely created in the 19th century. In 1937, the then Princess of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Freudenberg wore the Emerald Tiara for the Wedding of Princess Alexandrine Louise of Denmark and Count Luitpold of Castell-Castell, son of Princess Amélie of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Freudenberg, at Christiansborg Palace in Copenhagen.

In 2017, Princess Sophie zu Löwenstein-Wertheim-Freudenberg wore the Emerald Tiara for her Wedding to Count Constantin Fugger von Babenhausen near the splendid family seat of Schloss Wertheim in Kreuzwertheim.

Last year, a lady was pictured wearing the Löwenstein-Wertheim-Freudenberg Emerald Tiara at the spectacular Wedding Ball of the Prince of Schaumburg-Lippe and Mahkameh Navabi at Schloss Bückeburg who Stefan (@RoyalTravel) tells us is the current Fürstin zu Löwenstein-Wertheim-Freudenberg, who paired the Tiara with the accompanying emerald necklace.

Last month, Princess Amelie zu Löwenstein-Wertheim-Freudenberg wore the Emerald Tiara for her Wedding to Benedikt Schmid von Schmidsfelden also in Wertheim. There is no doubt we will continue to see this spectacular jewel for years to come.

A huge thank you to Stefan (@RoyalTravel) for sharing his spectacular pictures of the two weddings!
