If there is one thing right, it is the charm of royal families, their elaborate clothes and court dresses, the eccentricities only they can do, the fortunes they spend and above all the crown jewels. Vladimir’s Tiara is one of the British relics with much more history than you think.

The jewels of the British Crown are a series of jewels, brooches, pins and pieces of jewelry belonging to the Royal British Houseamong which the royal and imperial crowns of England, Scotland and India stand out, accompanied by other metals such as swords and scepters.

The most important medals of the magnificent collection are used during official events and the emblematic coronation ceremony. The last recorded formality dates from June 2, 1953, when Queen Elizabeth II ascended the throne as monarch of the United KingdomCanada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Pakistan and Ceylon, after the death of her father, King George VI, on February 6, 1952

Considered the most valuable collection of jewels in the world, these relics are guarded in the so-called Tower of London, officially the Royal Palace and Fortress of his Majesty. The building founded towards the end of 1060, is a historic castle located on the north bank of the River Thames, in the center of the Tower Hamlets district in London.

This place keeps one of the most representative jewels of the current British monarch: Vladimir’s Tiara. Of course, the name was not inherited from the Anglo-Saxon. The reason is very simple. Initially, the precious jewel belonged to the Grand Duchess Maria Pávlovna of Russiamarried to Grand Duke Vladimir Aleksandrovich of Russia on August 28, 1874 in St. Petersburg.

When Pavlovna, known as the Duchess Maria Eleanor Alexandrina of Mecklenburg-Schwerinwas single, she owned an impressive collection of jewels from the court of the Tsars until her death on September 6, 1920.

Many of the valuable items were acquired by the Queen Consort of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and her Overseas Domains and Empress Consort of India, Maria de Teck, through the daughter of the deceased, Grand Duchess Helena Russia.

Previously, the relics of the Grand Duchess were taken from the Eurasian country by a Swedish diplomat of Vladimirsky Palace, located in St. Petersburg, Russia, after the Revolution of Otober 1917, and returned to its owner in France, who kept them until the day he died.

The tiara, created in 1880, consists of fifteen circles of diamonds within which is set a pear-shaped pearl replaceable by an emerald of the same shape in each circle.

The most recognized jewel of the royal collection has been worn multiple times during the 60 years of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II in its original form, with pearls; with emeralds, called emeralds of Cambridge; and even with nothing in the circular supports, and that makes it worthy of such distinguished recognition.
