The Vladimir Tiara takes its name from the fact that it was made for Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna, wife of Grand Duke Vladimir, probably at the time of her marriage to Emperor Alexander III’s brother. Almost certainly made by the jeweller to the imperial court, C.E. Bolin, it consists of intersecting circles set with brilliant diamonds, each hung with a claw-set pendant pearl.

Made for Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna, 1874; sold by her daughter, Princess Nicholas of Greece to Queen Mary, 1921
